lyrics

It was all a lie, mixed with truth - that's the hist'ry they tell.
Tryin to lullaby our spirits with a sinister spell.
But no - I will never be still! Givin em hell!
Innocent screams swell from the so-called liberty bell.
Meanwhile we live in a state of pretendin it's okay,
runnin the rat race for barely a livable wage.
Bury your head in the sand - bend over, willingly raped.
Our native spirits replaced with the religion of slaves!
Subserviently turnin the cheek for the oppressor;
sacrificing life's quality for heavenly treasure.
Try the peaceful approach, against a tyrant with weapons?
They'll take your rights at gunpoint; you wave your sign as you let em!
You ain't threat'nin singing for peace, while they drummin for war.
You brought a pen to a sword fight - now your guts on the floor!
Don't you get it? They know what they're doing is not to our liking.
So what you think we gonna accomplish by asking politely?
LETS RISE UP!

I came to preach the truth, I came to be the proof, I came to bring the beast to its knees!
I came to bring the pain, I came to make it rain fire from the sky all in the name of...
Freedom! Freedom!
Freedom! Freedom!

I'm experiencing cognitive dissonance -
cause we allow a system that schools kids to pass some standardized tests.
And if they don't comply, we medicate the threat.
And if your meds don't mess you up enough to skip your free lunch -
Oh yum!
Cause Michelle Obama got you some toxic sludge,
to help the next generation trudge on pace
to their place in the rat race where we
make and make - just to throw it all away, away!>>>
So don't think, create, or have a single idea;
those are programmed for you by mainstream media, nightmare to me
So-called American dream where profits over people is the motto of economy.
A country where we still celebrate Columbus Day -
so we wanna emulate pillaging and child rape!

I came to preach the truth, I came to be the proof, I came to bring the beast to its knees!
I came to bring the pain, I came to make it rain fire from the sky all in the name of...
Freedom! Freedom!
Freedom! Freedom!



It's time to take a stand; Syria killin each other with guns, we don't give a damn,
But do it with chemicals, we invade your land.
See a tyrant's only mighty as the sword he commands -
So we police them, take their weapons, putting pow'r in our hands.
Meanwhile, the electoral college undermines the people;
we can vote but our voice is quite a bit shy from equal.
Our minds are weaker; can't even know what's best for ourselves.
Left to our own intellect I guess we would never excel!
'N' lobbyists give CEOs an extra vote through legal
bribes, cash flows - and the same assholes
Charge indigenous tribes for water from their own skies
Murder those who protest! Make sweatshops of the rest!

Now Lady Liberty's screamin, because her children are weaklings.
We left her broken and bleeding, but now it's time to redeem us,
by sacrificing what's needed for unequivocal freedom.
It's the American Spirit - the definition of treason!
LET'S RISE UP!

I came to preach the truth, I came to be the proof, I came to bring the beast to its knees!
I came to bring the pain, I came to make it rain fire from the sky all in the name of...
Freedom! Freedom!
Freedom! Freedom!
