Vs

They say if you go to church,
Then you got it together
I say treat the world kind
Then it all comes together
They say REBEL if you fail to step in line
I say questions hone a stronger mind
They say we've lost our will
And're lying down to die
I say that we've lost our say,
The right to live, the right to try
They say "This is for your own good,
Now swallow it down"
I say "You go FIRST, and we'll see you next round!"
They say we need, to be told what to do
I say their greed for power is closer to true
They say we live in the land of the free

YEAH!...
Free to what?!???
Take all the land?
Take all our time?
Take our children's minds?
Take all our sense of hope?
Take control of the vote?
Take all of our throats?

When will you take it all in,
There's none without sin
There's just what we do
VS.
What we say!
