my first attempt at a punk song, i guess. any crit would be helpful

Broken down and beaten up
Don’t say sorry, they don’t give a ****
Wasted souls and tarnished minds
Looks like they were just out of luck

But I could see right through the plan
America used to be so grand
Now we’re hording what we’ve got
And we’re stealing when we can

Don’t even try to explain it all away
Now there’s a blindfold across our eyes
And a noose around my neck
I know I can’t always make the right decision
But at least I always use my common sense

So this is my protest protest protest song
I didn’t jump on the bandwagon, I’ve been driving all along
So take this you ***holes in upper management
Everything is not just fine, but I’ll just pretend, I’ll just pretend

We think we are a superpower, that the world belongs to us
Tap the worlds’ resources just because (yeah just because)
But now we start to realize that we’re not in control
Just give it up Bush, this charade is getting old

In my lifetime I’ll inherit the most ****ed up world that humans have ever seen
And I will have to share it with the people that my ancestors made bleed

I don’t know (I don’t know) if I can take the burden
And even though (even though) I should be outraged
I’ll put up with it and do what I can (what I can)
I’ll be the one to fix your ****ing mistakes!

Don’t even try to explain it all away
Now there’s a blindfold across our eyes
And a noose around my neck
I know I can’t always make the right decision
But at least I always use my common sense

So this is my protest protest protest song
I didn’t jump on the bandwagon, I’ve been driving all along
So take this you ***holes in upper management
Everything is not just fine, but I’ll just pretend, I’ll just pretend
