lyrics

I cry out tyranny, our rights don't exist
and that's what gets my name on some watch list
In a modern debate, only zingers are exchanged
Except I give facts so they call me strange
It's all sewn up, I'm not sure what to believe
When some one's dictating the news I read
Both sides of the aisle were bought out long ago
By patient people who I'll never know

CHORUS:
Sometimes it seems like there's no end in sight
They act unlawful and say that it's right
I am not subject to such evil plans
And that's because I am a sovereign man
END CHORUS

It's a global shakedown,
I hope it's trickle-up misery
If the top dogs flinch, it's a small victory
Divide and conquer,
I feel the clamps are coming down
And they prefer that you don't make one sound

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:
It's a rude awakening, they try to tell you that we need a police state to make us safe
Am I to be a prisoner of corporatocracies?
Just let me out, I want my liberties
How much power do they need?

REPEAT CHORUS
