Have bitten my tongue so long it is true.
I value my country, but politics, not you.
Told all the time, how to live,
what to eat and how to raise our kids.
I am tired of mistakes and paying the price.
Animals don't fight for rights, should we?
Whether it's money, pride or pain you shed,
fear is there and tears are near.
I love this land I call home,
but the fighting just has to go.
No longer free, I sink to my knees,
Is this really how it needs to be?
I want to run, I want to break free.
I can eat no more lies or your polluted meat.
All of it means nothing to me, when told like soldiers,
to work, pay your taxes and ask no questions.
People turn to each other but do they really care?
I fear the answer is no, "it's not me" filling the air.
I wish life was simple, I would be happy to smile.
I want to feel safe, to relax, for just a little while.
