Take Up Arms; Governments Will Fall
Turbulence, distress, sleepless night,
Can no longer distinguish between wrong from right;
Hearts breaking, eyes weeping minds can not comprehend,
What has this world come to? I can no longer pretend;
Streets are flooded with people fed up,
Eager to fight the system, ready or not;
Governments, politicians stealing from everyone,
Invading nations out of greed one by one;
The world we once knew now long gone,
Can someone tell me where we went wrong?
I want this, I want that,
I have the right, they owe me that;
Look out for number one, I look out for me,
I don’t care about anyone but me;
Greed, corruption, scandals and such,
Take whatever you want, take as much;
Destroy; kill, whatever it takes,
Why not ? You are the bigger bully for goodness sakes;
No one will stop you, am I right?
Aha, but when they’ve had enough they’ll take up arms and they will fight;
The world now in turmoil, homeless, starvation, destruction and wars,
The world is in chaos, people fed up and fighting back more and more;
Peace, jobs, food and homes,
This is what we want, and they feel it deep within their bones;
Corrupt politicians, governments filled with greed,
They will be overthrown; you all better take heed;
Everyone’s fed up, everyone in every land,
And everyone’s ready to fight back, hand in hand.
