Elections (Uprising Parody)

It’s back to this time of the year, ‘cuz all the
Average students are quaking in fear, (they’re coming)
Wentworth walkway is infested by hordes, of many
Campaigners for the Union Board

(so let’s run!)

The same promises from every team, with so much
Dedication pushed to the extreme, dressed up in
Coloured shirts all standing in a line, to stop us
Getting to our classes in time

(so let’s run!)

They will come get us
Policies will be discussed
This harassment will last
Pray that they won’t notice us

I’ll tell you issues that I’ll fix in uni,
Though in truth I’m just stacking my CV
My attempts fifteen minutes of fame, is just as
Awful as the pun I made with my name

(So vote me!)

To ensure that you will vote for me, I’ve thought of
Lots of stunts to earn publicity, like wearing
Onesies: proof that I’m a ball of fun, so tick me
On the ballot as your number one

Don’t look at us with such disgust
Manning will be full of us
Even if you cuss at us
We will make you vote for us!

(So vote me!)

Vote! Vote! Vote! Vote!
Vote! Vote! Vote! Vote!
Vote! Vote! Vote! Vote!

Don’t look at us with such disgust
Manning will be full of us
Even if you cuss at us
We will make you vote for us!

Vote! Vote! Vote! Vote!
The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
Transmissions will resume, they'll try to
Push drugs, keep us all dumb down and hope that
We will never see the truth around, 

(so come on)

Another promise, another scene, another
Package not to keep us trapped in greed with all the
Green belts wrapped around our minds and endless
Red tape to keep the truth confined, 

(so come on)

They will not force us
And they will stop degrading us
And they will not control us
We will be victorious, so come on

Interchanging mind control, come let the
Revolution take its toll, if you could
Flick a switch and open your third eye, you'd see that
We should never be afraid to die, 

(so come on)

Rise up and take the power back, it's time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end, we have to
Unify and watch our flag ascend, so come on

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious, 

(so come on)

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious, so come on

Hey, hey, hey, hey
