Politician in Heat


This song is my contribution to politics during this election year. The message is simple: the only thing I can change is myself.

He's gotta hard line for a constituent.
You know I been down, he's gonna up my rent.

Well, who is that man? Why's he smiling at me?
(He's a politician in heat.)
Well, I don't know him, and he don't know me
(He's a politician in heat.)
All he wants is my vote and my cash
Then he'll give it all to me
Get me a job and take care of my kids
Must be true, it's on my TV.

He gotta hard line for a constituent.
You know I've been down - he's gonna up my rent.

Well now that he's in, it's so easy to see,
(He's a politician in heat.)
He's fin'lly done himself jus' like he's done you 'n' me!
(He's a politician in heat.)
All day long he's massaging his plan,
getting us under his control
Making it smooth for the next time he's in
As he moves from poll to poll.

He gotta hard line for a constituent.
You know I been down - he's gonna up my rent.

Smilin' at the man now I'm able to see,
(He's a politician in heat.)
I'm just like him and he's just like me,
(We're all politicians in heat.)
Dream through the mirror we can heal ourselves -
We can't tell others who to be,
Turn our back to the bores and their wars,
They're not in our reality.
