Commander In Chief Lyrics

Were you ever taught when you were young
If you mess with things selfishly, they're bound to come undone?
I'm not the only one
That's been affected and resented every story you've spun, and I'm a lucky one

'Cause there are people worse off that have suffered enough
Haven't they suffered enough?
But you can't get enough of shutting down systems for personal gain
Fighting fires with flayers and praying for rain
Do you get off on pain?
We're not pawns in your game

Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do, I couldn't sleep
Seriously, do you even know the truth?
We're in a state of crisis, people are dying
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief
How does it feel to still be able to breathe?

We were taught when we were young
If we fight for what's right, there won't be justice for just some
Won't give up, stand our ground
We'll be in the streets while you're bunkering down
Loud and proud, best believe
We'll still take a knee while you're

Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do, I couldn't sleep
Seriously, do you even know the truth?
We're in a state of crisis, people are dying
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief
How does it feel to still be able to breathe?

Breathe
Be able to breathe

Won't give up, stand our ground
We'll be in the streets while you're bunkering down
Won't give up, stand our ground
We'll be in the streets while you're

Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do, I couldn't sleep
Seriously, do you even know the truth?
We're in a state of crisis, people are dying
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief
How does it feel to still be able to breathe?
Able to breathe

Commander In Chief Meanings

I think that this song cannot be limited to just President Donald Trump. This can be taken in a very broader perspective as well. In my opinion, this could be referring to all governments and leaders all over the world. No country in the world was able to deal with the pandemic as well as they should have, no matter how well developed they are. So I think it would be better to take this song with regards to all politicians and leaders as a whole.

When Demi Lovato wants to get a point across, she definitely does it in style. Commander in Chief is Demi's way of addressing the current president of the United States, President Donald Trump. She has used this song as an opportunity to talk about against Trump's poor policies with regards to the Covid 19 pandemic, the black lives matter movement, the California Wildfires, and many other problems. This is one of the rare times when Demi has openly expressed her political views, and she later took to Instagram to clap back at the people who believed she didn't have the right to do so.
