lyrics

The time is now to take a stand
these dictators will bring death to man
They've got you docile, they've got you hooked
They've got you fed with shit from their history books

what will it take? when will you see?
They don't give a fuck, they'll take their side when the odds stack up.

Our human rights are a joke to them, but you've still got faith
in the government
It's time to take what we are promised, it's time to take what we are owed
they don't care about our families, they don't care about our homes

Work us to the grave, but you think this country's free of slaves
I've seen the best men fall under their crippling weight
caged until our deaths but you say that it's okay
I won't be held a captive living life their fucking way

I've seen their weakness, I've seen their heel
They want us dumb and weak but they'll never steal
My strength, my resistance, my spirit, my persistence
My burning inside, it can change the tide

Open your eyes, just take a look
It's not too late to pick yourself up off the hook

We spend our lives doing what we're told
No retirement left for the poor and old

It's time to strengthen what we have
it's time to take arms
we're caught in their scopes but our voices could do them harm
