    TAKE A STAND

    In the land of the free, home of the brave.

    It's citizens too blind to see, a nation thats in peril.

    We're in grave need of a revolution, if we hope to ever

    take back the constitution, repeal oppressive amendments

    that were passed in the name of National Security.

    It's an absurdity to continue to define this country

    as a true democracy, it reeks of hypocrisy.

    We've been denied our civil liberties

    been made victims of conspiracies.

    Our sovereignty has become an illusion.

    In the land of opportunity

    we oppose the intrusion of our government

    who act as if they have full immunity

    while we are on the edge of complete and total ruin.

    No longer are we governed of the people by the people.

    Today we are governed by banks.

    YES

    DOLLARS POUNDS FRANCS.

    We are slaves to a powerful beast

    with one generation now worse off

    than the one that came before it.

    How much longer will we choose to ignore it?

    They want to see us all broke on dope and uneducated.

    We are kept in the dark about who really is affiliated.

    No child left behind has lead to an infusion of ignorance.

    Press rewind and notice how every incident is intertwined

    to the next one, to where we are today.

    From the great depression to this disastrous recession

    we put our trust in a goverment of hidden agendas.

    We know our leaders are working hard

    We just don't know, who they are working for.

    Because with stealth all our freedoms are being eradicated

    THEY ALL NEED TO BE INVESTIGATED

    .

    .

    .

    (music starts)

    oh I wish I was in the land of cotton

    where our way of life was not forgotten

    don’t look away

    there must be a way

    to lock them away

    and

    TAKE A STAND
