When There's Nothing Left To Lose

When the man comes to call, you're shoved against the wall,
a gun in your face, who calls himself the law, show me 
your papers, obey what I say or else you'll surely
pay. You will disappear, your family we will kill
what do you think, or do you think at all? What will you
do when the man comes to call will you fall down on
your knees ask him to let you be, do you still believe you're
free? Do you know if he's the man or just part of the plan
just a shadow of the man. How much will you take 
before you make your stand, say no to the man, to
get up off your knees and show that you're a man.

When there's nothing left to lose and no place left to run,
will you stand tall in the sun, six gun in your hand,
to face down the man.
