They voted him in
They voted him in
And I cried
They voted him in
And I cried
They voted him in
And I cried
I screamed
I tore my hair and scratched my skin
I ripped myself to shreds
I wailed to *** or Yaweah or Allah
Or the empty sky
Who swallowed my pain indifferently
And I put myself back together on tear soaked bed sheets
What else can I do
They have all the power
And Iā€™m 17
For gods sake Iā€™m only 17
Iā€™m feeling a little helpless lately
