I was feeling optimistic once, but now I'm not.
Starting to believe that compromise won't stand a shot.
Not before the New Year comes and we go off the cliff.
Congress doesn't seem to care about the working stiff.
Even though the cliff is just a slope (or so we're told)
All this petty posturing is getting pretty old.
Maybe they're maneuvering to get a better deal.
Seems like their divisions are impossible to heal.
