Now and then I think of when you were elected
Like when you said you were for hope and were for change
I thought I felt that you were right for us
So I cheered for you and voted thus
But that was then and it's a hope I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind o' oppression
Like resignation to the quo, the status quo
So when we found you went back on your word
And your sense of right and wrong was blurred
It was then we knew our ideal hopes were over

But you didn't have to help the spy
Authorize drone strikes against civilians without fair trial
You promis'd to shut Gitmo
But four years later, they're still locked away
You said whistleblowers were support
But now you've branded them as traitors to your new Empire
To protect all our rights you once swore
Now you're just a pres'dent I used to vote for

Now you're just a pres'dent I used to vote for
Now you're just a pres'dent I used to vote for

Now and then I think of when you won the Nobel Peace Prize
It was given for the things that you were meant to do.
But look at everything you've done
Look at all of the voters you have shunn'd
We hoped that you would change the score
And you wouldn't turn into just another pres'dent I once voted for

But you didn't have to help the spy
Authorize drone strikes against civilians without fair trial
You promis'd to shut Gitmo
But four years later, they're still locked away
You said whistleblowers were support
But now you've branded them as traitors to your new Empire
To protect all our rights you once swore
Now you're just a pres'dent I used to voted for
