Of Ballots and Barricades Songtext

I got Arizona residency one day too late
To vote on this election day.
And every year before Iâ ve been too drunk to register.
Iâ d say â I donâ t believe in it anyway.â

I still shake my head at ballots cast for elephants.
I shake my head at ballots cast for donkeys,
'Cause I swear to god our leaders, they will be death of us.
Thereâ s no ballot we can cast to set us free.


But thereâ s no brick we can throw that will end poverty,
You canâ t blow up SB1070.
Things will never be as simple as when I was twelve years old
Reading Karl Marx in my bedroom alone.

And since there have been laws, there have been criminals.
There have been thieves since thereâ s been property.
And the day will come again when none of those things are around,
I just hope itâ s before people go extinct.

So vote November 2nd if it seems right to you,
Donâ t vote if you think it just holds us down.
Just tell me what weâ re gonna do on November 3rd
To make sure thereâ s no government left to elect two years from now.

Just tell me what we're gonna do on November 3rd
To make sure there's no government left to elect two years from now.
