Summing Up the State of US Politics

I am not a huge fan of Breaking Benjamin, though I like their music.  I had this song in my head and searched it on You Tube, Angels Fall.  It is about a family that lost their lives in a boating accident apparently.  The YouTube analytical engine then cued up another song, as it does, which was Breaking Benjamins Failure.  I like the song but have never paid much attention to the lyrics until I watched the video.  But it struck me that it sums up what is happening in America pretty much perfectly.  I have no idea if the band has any particular political view but these lyrics are timely.

Tired of feeling lost, tired of letting go.
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down.

Tired of wasted breath, tired of nothing left.
Tear the whole world down, tear the whole world down.


Yep.  That’s about it.  Burn their playhouse down.  Whether it is Trump or Sanders.  Just burn it down and hopefully something better rises from the ashes.  Our elite class of politicians ensconced for life in their insular world in DC are a massive failure and utter letdown from the promise of the American Experiment.

This song is so excellent I just bought the album.
