This Is The New Breed Lyrics

Artist: Down by Law
Album: Fly the Flag

somewhere in a cold jail cell
is a man doing time,
in a living hell
for perjury
but it's o.k. for billy
somewhere is a young girl
her life is forever swirled
she's out of luck
but it's o.k. for billy
and so many pawns will fall
for every king's stone wall
i believe that we should strive
for more
obstruction, deception
and still they blindly support him
they've lowered the standards
that they could've raised
it's such a shame
this is the new breed
and i'm standing on my own
i remember when
there were democrats
who stood tall and
were cool cats
now all i see are
more suits and ties
double standards,
equivocate
but even kings can get checkmate
just be honest and show this
king the door
some say that it's just lies, but
i think it's just trust
and i believe that we should
strive for more
if he were in the g.o.p.,
you know that instantly
they'd be lining up to fire
but now they lowered the standards
that they could've raised
it's such a shame
but this is the new breed
for every little kid today
who wonders why this one's o.k.
well, kid these are double standards
and this is the new breed
and i'm standing on my own
and maybe it's naive
for someone to believe
that there's a better way
to run the show today
but somewhere is a man or woman
political in stripe
whoe doesn't want to fall in line
who'll say what's wrong is right
and it's time to put it right
the king should lose his crown
this time
who has the guts to say
this thing is not o.k.
for the sake of kings to come
but now they lowered the standards
that they could've raised
it's such a shame
this is the new breed
for every little kid today
who wonders why this one's o.k.
well, kid these are double standards
and this is the new breed
this is the new breed
well i'm standing on my own
