'Hypolitical' © Mark S. Ludes (MSL)

Elections come, elections go, politicians run and away they go.
They keep on movin' like a high speed chase, they all end up in a similar place.
They can talk the talk, they try to say what's right, and they can do it with there eyes closed every night.
Campaign speeches and alibis, it's all about the money, that's no surprise.

It's politics, hypocrites,
all just ramblin' on....
It's politics, hypocrites
all the same old song.

They all need to talk about responsibility, instead of pointing their fingers at you or me.
Get back to right is right, and wrong is wrong, no more playing the in between song.
Yes means yes, and no means no, it's not sometimes, maybe, or I don't know.
Can they tell the truth, stand by their word, craziest thing they ever heard.

It's politics, it's hypocrites,
Can you say 'hypolitical'?
It's Politics, hypocrites
It's all just too political.

We keep hearing about 'politically correct', (hmm...) isn't that an oxymoron?.
Maybe think more about whom we elect, than who we're gonna blame the War on.
Let's write a new song that we can all understand, keep it real simple by popular demand.
Get 'em all on board to practice what they preach, if we gotta listen to what they teach.
It's politics, hypocrites,
all just ramblin' on....
It's politics, hypocrites
just the same old song.

great song! I love how the syllables of the lyrics go with the beat of the song, especially in the first parts of the songs. Then it evolves more into a full rock song with electric guitar. Very good variation throughout with adding in instruments to keep the song interesting throughout. Excellent lyrics and overall good job!

I'm not big into politics, mainly because we share the same opinion of the jesters and courtiers performing for the king with the biggest bankroll.

So, yes...I like the lyrics quite a bit. I also like the old "Cars" feel that you have going. It's well recorded, catchy, and I could see it as a segue on some conservative news show.

catchy tune with a political theme. i enjoyed the melody
good theme and well arranged track .

Great recording here. The bass and drums were great. I also liked the clarity of the vocals and the overall message of the song. Good work!
