lyrics

Up for election when the old man died
the board gets together, but there's a divide
no one's sure if he's too young for the job
Moved the family across the State
Now they're not sure if he's the right age
to lead these assholes where they don't deserve

The children prayed, the decision is made
you get what you get and you don't throw a fit
Old people afraid, and they complain
these kids are ruining what we built

Now there's a portrait in a darkened hall
Every dead man hangs on that wall
and kids make up their stories to match the face

The children prayed, the decision is made
you get what you get and you don't throw a fit
Old people afraid, and they complain
these kids are ruining what we built

What a strange way to build a career
Dad didn't whistle for a couple of years
Because music is how let us know he's okay.

He's elected
He's elected
And ready to serve
