Political Bondage

To be free of the people who tie and bind.
Leave all those who doubt me there; 
All the people who daudle fall behind…

Their ignorance and stupidity blind
And all the weak willed individuals should beware.
To be free of the people who tie and bind.

The tyrants rule and control they’re fragile minds.
 In filth the common live and are completely unaware;
All the people who dautle fall behind…

Like an obedient dog locked up and confined.
They do as they’re told with vacant stare.
To be free of the people who tie and bind.

Personality and uniqueness began to unwind.
The people know of no place better out there;
All the people who daudle fall behind…

They stand uniform and walk in steps and in a line.
One person whispers an unheard prayer…
To be free of the people who tie and bind.
All the people who daudle fall behind…
