HOW MUCH MORE MUST WE TAKE
How many more businesses will need to go under?
How many more lives will they squash and plunder?
Should my way of life be put to the test?
How many should sacrifice so you can rest?
Why should my freedom suffer so you can feel safe?
You can stay home and vegetate.
Martial law, more government control?
We are digging ourselves a mighty large hole.
The entire planet now under siege?
I’m calling BS on the powers that be.
We are the people our numbers are high.
Our leaders are hanging us out to dry.
Rise up or fall, it’s now or never.
Blind obedience is never clever.
Our way of life is being changed.
Don’t let your future be prearranged.
It’s time to act and take a stand.
Our right to choose will soon be banned.
We need exposure to live and survive.
The longer we’re home the deeper we dive.
