Ranting In Song Form

It's been a while since I wrote a complete political song, but there's a topic I've wanted to explore for a long, long time, and certain attitudes/events related to the recent election inspired me to finally give it a shot.

My philosophy is that if I have to tell you what my songs are about, I haven't done a good enough job writing them, so here are the lyrics, and you can see for yourself if the theme is evident:


So many times I've tried
To open up your eyes
To all the forces that were keeping you from the top
I made it easier
Removed the barriers
Instead of thanking me, you tell me I need to stop

How dare you think for yourself
You can't get by without my help
All I want is to run your life
But turn your back, and you'll feel my knife


I held your hand so long
But now your shield is gone
I'll prove to you that you are nothing without my support
You would not play my game
So I'll destroy your name
I'll cast you out, turn friends against you; all's fair in war

Can't you see your mind is flawed?
You're not authentic, you're a fraud
Only those who think like me
Are worthy of my empathy


I just wanted to be your white knight
But you took away my spotlight
What's the point of my good deeds
If I can't be a celebrity?

You liar, you faker
You fucking self-hater
You'll fail sooner or later
Like the other selfish traitors


Don't try to pull yourself up
I'll drag you back down
Poison the water and hold you under 'til you drown
Your success doesn't count
Unless it comes through me
I am your savior
Submit to me
I'll set you free

What do you think? I just finished writing this about 20 minutes ago, so I'm open to suggestions.
