S06: Dirty Little Secrets
Dirty Little Secret
2012 Sahlen/Starburst

Cross stage left, Act One, Scene two, the play of life moves on
All that's left fails to find the courage or the brawn
The children of the parents who bore boomers in the night
Failing to acknowledge that something's just not right

Dirty little secret lurking in the shade
Soiled reputations elections bought and paid
Boot heeled to the ceiling, the cobbler takes the blame
Filthy little secrets fix the outcome of the game

Corporate raiders, sun tanned bathers, profiteers at bay
Pollster baiters, common haters, living for today
Indecent shameful avarice, the greed that never dies
Shilling through our TV sets shining through the lies

(repeat chorus)

Hundredaires and thousandaires awaken to your cost
Fight to stop the plunder and minimize your loss

(repeat chorus)
