George W. Bush                                     Bill Clinton

Everybody liked him, he had a lot of friends 
Loved sports growing up out in Western Texas 
Felt pressure from the bar set high by his dad 
The more his dad pushed, the more he rebelled 
Struggled academically, but turned it around 
Even made it through Yale, and later Harvard 
Pilot for the Texas Air National Guard 
Made riches with the Rangers, drilling oil, went far 
Alcohol battles, turned to his religion 
Struggled with public speaking, had some Bushisms 
Pushed reforms as governor of Texas 
Success there later helped become President 

He was an average good guy 
Who rocked the boat in his Presidency 

Okay he was President, but barely beat Gore 
The Court stopped the recount in Florida 
Compassionate conservative, No Child Left Behind 
Many say this broke the tenth amendment 

But then 9/11 happened, and everything changed 

Well Bush changed many things drastically 
Formed the Department of Homeland Security 
The people were scared of Al Qaeda and more 
They demanded the government just do more 
So Bush did more, signed the Patriot Act 
Said the government could spy and wiretap 
Signed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act 
Decided to preemptively strike Iraq 
Invaded Afghanistan and they're still there 
Detained with no trial, tortured many suspects 
Half the Bill of Rights abused and ignored 
in the name of security, protect the borders! 

He was an average good guy 
Who rocked the boat in his Presidency 

George W. Bush 
Dubya W. Bush 
George W. Bush 
Dubya W. Bush 

No weapons of mass destruction found 
Hundreds of thousands dead in Iraq 
Began the never-ending War of Terror 
Or as they call it the War on Terrorism 
But will this war, will it ever end? 
Yes it will but terrorism will not 

Popularity soared after 9/11 
And in 2004, he was re-elected 
But the wars dragged on and people were dying 
The money was gone, debt and deficit rising 
Housing bubble burst and everything with it 
Everybody affected by The Great Recession 
Bush and friends bailed out the big banks, 
big corporations, and even citizens 
Foreign policy questioned around the world 
A shoe thrown at his head, heck it was hurled 
Now things didn't go as well as he planned 
But he changed the world forever, this is where it stands

Always one for politics 
Never seemed to escape scandal 
Had many accomplishments 
But all they remember was scandal 

Bill Clinton, born and raised in Arkansas 
Never knew his real papa 
Long planned to go into law 
Avoided the draft into Vietnam 
Went to Georgetown, Yale, Oxford 
Got with Hillary Rodham 
It didn't take long before his first campaign 
Attorney general, soon youngest governor 

Always one for politics 
Never seemed to escape scandal 
Had many accomplishments 
But all they remember was scandal 

President, and second youngest elected 
and he quickly would be tested 
with violence near Waco and the World Trade Center 
Signed a law that made it harder to get guns 
the FMLA and NAFTA 
Favored collectivistism 
Extramarital affairs, accusations abounded 
Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate, Zippergate, and Vince Foster's death 
Second President impeached, for perjury and obstruction of justice 
Personal life got in his way but people would forget 

Always one for politics 
Never seemed to escape scandal 
Had many accomplishments 
But all they remember was scandal 

Saxophone solo (you know, because he plays the sax) 

New Democrat, centrist, Third Way, met halfway 
Gave Republicans the time of day 
But taxed the rich so he got his way 
Welfare reform, a budget surplus to end his term 
A failed health care reform attempt 
"Don't ask, don't tell" controversial 
He bombed Iraq, the Balkans, Black Hawk Down 
Still kept the empire, even though no Cold War 
OKC bombing, the rise of Al Qaeda 
Pakistan, India, Middle East, fragile peace 

Always one for politics 
Never seemed to escape scandal 
Had many accomplishments 
But all they remember was scandal 

Left office, with a high approval rating 
His wife, she kept debating 
and he's still doing his thing

Theodore Roosevelt

Larger than life 
Charismatic 
Fought corruption 
Wasn’t enough 
Don’t mess with him 
He’ll kick your butt 
Speaking softly 
with a big stick 

Born wealthy and privileged 
Aristocratic family 
In bustling New York City 
Mind was strong but body weak 
With his chronic asthma 
Picked on by big bullies 
But grew into a fighter 
And excelled at Harvard 

Theodore Roosevelt 

Entered politics at 23 
Lost his first wife, parents, way too early 
Then a rancher in Dakota territory 
Wrote many books on biology 

Led the Rough Riders in Cuba 
His bravery helped him win the medal of honor 
Fame there helped him to Vice President 
When McKinley died he was the youngest President ever 

Theodore Roosevelt 

He was a warrior for the underdog 
Against big business 
Wanted the U.S. top dog 
Spread their influence 
A conservationist who fought for national parks 
Traveled around the world, always exploring something 
Drank a gallon of coffee a day 
A leading Progressive, the Bull Moose Party 
Spared the life of a bear, he’s Teddy 
Lived life to the fullest, every day 

First to travel overseas in office 
First to call home the White House 
First to hold press conferences there 
First? Well, first of a lot of things. 

In his 60 years of living 
He did more than most do in 100 

Theodore Roosevelt 

Go Teddy!

Andrew Jackson

 

His nickname was "Old Hickory" 
Spent most his time in Tennessee 
Grew up poor out on the frontier 
Became a prominent lawyer 
Had role of spokesman for the West 
As Congressman and Senator 
Knew how to kick butt in a fight 
Killed a man who insulted his wife 

A military hero of the War of 1812 
Defied the odds in the Battle of New Orleans 
Invaded Spanish Florida, captured Pensacola 
Was the first "common man" to win the Presidency 

But he supported slavery (Yes he did, Yes he did) 
And he supported Indian removal (The Trail of Tears) 

Got rid of the national debt 
The only one to accomplish this 
Helped get rid of the central bank 
Then gave the money to the states 
Believed in true democracy 
Which really did not exist 
Forced Indians to Oklahoma 
Said it was in their best interest 

Had a bullet stuck next to his heart for most of his life 
Wanted to abolish the electoral college 
Used his power to veto unlike Presidents before 
Was not aristocratic unlike Presidents before 

But he supported slavery (Yes he did, Yes he did) 
And he supported Indian removal (The Trail of Tears) 

High School                           You Should Floss!              Everyone Wants Your Money

Walking down the hall to my first class is quite the adventure 
Everyone is staring at me or I think I'm not sure 
A foot sticks out from nowhere and now I am on the floor 
I look up the whole world is laughing I can't take this anymore 

Everything, everything, everything matters in high school 
The way you look, the way you talk, the way you dress, the way you walk 
And I'm going crazy 

After lunch I go up to my crush with confidence 
I invite her to prom and she has not talked to me since 
I will not go to prom alone for I did that last year 
But my self-esteem is crushed I am just not popular here 
(and that's what matters)

I went to the dentist the other day

He said, "Matt, I've got something to say"

"You should floss once a day, to prevent tooth decay! You should floss!"

I went to the supermarket the other day.      The cashier lady shook her head at me and said

"You should floss once a day, to prevent tooth decay! To get rid of gingivitis and reduce plaque! To have your healthy gums back! You should floss!"

I went to church on Sunday.  

The priest pointed his finger at me and said

"You should floss!" 

Well you're trying to run  but you can't get away  

You can hide for years but in the end they'll get their prey 

They're the I.R.S.

So you'll pay your taxes and you'll pay all of your bills

Then you'll go see the doctor and he wants you take pills

So there's insurance

Everyone wants your money

Hahahahahaha Nope, this ain't funny

Even when you're broke they'll keep asking for more

And charge interest, they don't care, they're not poor

They are corporate. They're the government. 

If It Weren't for Time, I'd Have Some Bull Crap

 

Why do I have to eat? Why do I have to sleep? It takes too much time. Too much time.

Go go don't stop. Shop 'till you drop. Energy drink will get you through.

Look there's fast food. And it's a drive-thru! When microwaves just won't do.

Why do I have to eat? Why do I have to sleep? It takes too much time. Too much time. 

You feel guilty if. You don't multi-task. 'Cause life's just too fast to waste seconds.

When you're too busy. To take a deep breath. I say seperate soul from body.

Why do I have to eat? Why do I have to sleep? It takes too much time. Too much time.

 

 

Ive had enough
Of this bull crap
Of this crap

Its all over the TV
On the news
I dont know who to believe
Im so confused
And its on the internet
On the blogs
They believe everything they hear
Even though its all wrong

Now when my friends cant tell the truth
I can trust no one
I used to lie to myself
But now thats no fun
I dont believe a word you say
I might pretend its all okay
But I wont believe a word you say
Now all this crap is not okay

The Wicked Nosehair           Midwestern City  Hooray for Propaganda!

I have a nosehair sticking out of my nose
Everyone is staring the longer it grows
Well it grows it grows it grows
Well it grows it grows it grows
I trim that nosehair but it grows right back
I wish it would cut me some slack
But it grows it grows it grows
But it grows it grows it grows
(here we go) (uh-oh here we go)
It wouldn't be so bad if I had a mustache
Boy that sucker grows really fast
It grows it grows it grows!

You're a midwestern city, you're so out of place, in the middle of nowhere, you dominate. St. Louis, Omaha, Des Moines, and Wichita. Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Kansas City, yes you're all midwestern cities.                                                            You're a midwestern city, standing tall and strong. All the neighboring farm towns will all soon be gone. You're a midwestern city, always looking to grow. Especially your suburbs, for that will keep costs low.           You're a midwestern city, where it's cheaper to live, but you have the same problems that those coast cities have. You're a midwestern city, a gateway to the West. You don't mean to brag but you know you are the best.  

 

 Let's manipulate some evidence, and create some truth out of it. We can make everyone believe that we're telling the truth when we're not. Let's push some propaganda. Let's shove it down their throats. Because everyone knows that you all can't think for yourselves.                                                    Our goal is mass hysteria. Let's give them lots to fear. They'll believe every word that we say 'cause there's no way we'd lie about that.

Let's push some propaganda, let's fool them that it's not, because everyone knows that you all can't think for yourselves. 

Mediocre Bands                              Oleaver's Pub Won't Let Us Play There Anymore

Mediocre bands all over the place
When I listen to them it's time I waste
I try really hard to give them a chance
But they're mediocre bands that think they're the best

Some say Electric Needle Room
Are so mediocre
Yes this might be true
But at least they try to be original

Just take a look at the mainstream
Cookie cutter copycats
Yes it's as bad as it seems
And yes it's all of your faults

There's this little bar in Omaha At 50th and Saddle Creek They host many indie rock bands Almost every single day of the week We played there two weeks in a row The first show went fairly well But the second show there was no sound guy And I admit that we did not play well Two months later I email them Asking if we can play there again Well I guess I made the booking guy mad Because we never heard from him again Oleaver's Pub Won't Let Us Play There Anymore I guess we're not cool, not hip, not good enough I beg and pleaded for so long For us to play there again But I never got one reply They blew me off again and again I guess it's just politics But they sure acted like elites Well you know what? I don't need them. I can always play at Barley Street. Oleaver's Pub Won't Let Us Play There Anymore I guess we're not cool, not hip, not good enough.

Let's Make Fun of Everybody The Wicked Nosehair

Let's make fun of everybody
It'll make us feel better about ourselves
Let's make fun of everybody
It's not like anyone has feelings

It could be your class or religion
Or it could your ethnic group or even gender

I'll find a different way to make fun of you
My ignorance will guide me through

Let's make fun of everybody
It'll make us feel better about ourselves
Let's make fun of everybody
It's not like anyone has feelings

It could be your abilities
Or it could be the color of your skin

I'll find a different way to make fun of you
My ignorance will guide me through
I'll find a different way to make you feel bad
Make you sad, make you mad, but I'll be glad

Let's make fun of everybody
It'll make us feel better about ourselves
Let's make fun of everybody
It's not like anyone has feelings
Well it's plain to see
That you're not with me
So I'll call you names
'Cause your pain's my gain
I will get you back in the most personal way

I have a nosehair sticking out of my nose
Everyone is staring the longer it grows
Well it grows it grows it grows
Well it grows it grows it grows
I trim that nosehair but it grows right back
I wish it would cut me some slack
But it grows it grows it grows
But it grows it grows it grows
(here we go) (uh-oh here we go)
It wouldn’t be so bad if I had a mustache
Boy that sucker grows really fast
It grows it grows it grows!

Farther

Sitting out in the lobby He is talking lots of smack He says bad things about my mom And then punches me in the back Later on he laughs at me Calls me stupid and ugly I pretend that I don't care and I pretend that he's not there He called my best friend Sally fat but he didn't know that she'd fight back She slapped him then across the face Then warned him that she'd use her mace He didn't care and still grabbed her And that's when I just sort of snapped I grabbed him by his shirt collar Pinned him down and told him that "I will go farther than you. I will go farther than you." Five years later at a bar Playing pool, a drink or two He comes in with his posse I say "why, how do you do?" He says "don't get smart with me" And says he will kick my butt I say "now take it easy" and "I didn't mean anything by it." Later in the parking lot He comes up to me very drunk He is talking lots of trash He then punches me in the back Later on while he's in jail I decide to visit him It may have been sort of mean I just wanted to remind him that "I will go farther than you. I will go farther than you."
