sit down, they say

sit down

they tell me

sit down

calm that voice

calm that spirit voice

thats wants to revolutionize

and change hateworld

calm that love

calm that spirit, they say

fearing day of love

fearing reckoning of truth

sit down

sit down they say

sit down they say

sit your thoughts down

sit your love down

sit your truth down

they say

they want to sit the truth down

they want to shut the truth up

I will not sit down

I will stand

I will stand erect and proud

like a lovesoldier that I am

searching for truth eternal

too moral

to hold

too moral to keep down

too moral to keep silent

do not tell me to stand

I will stand guard like a good soldier

I will stand.
