Take for granted your basic rights
Take for granted our way of life
Take for granted all we share
Because one day it might not be here

The men who thought and the men who tried
The men who taught to all mankind
The Ten Commandments
The words of Christ
The Constitution
The Bill of Rights

Virtue, morality, and independence…

The search for truth and the rule of law
With all we heard and with all we saw
After all gets said and done
Nothing lost and nothing won

Except … life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness

Nothings guaranteed
Just responsibility
The taxes paid
The laws obeyed
Start living your life free

Free to speak and express yourself
Buy a gun and protect yourself
Assemble peaceably
Practicing your religion freely

While they're the ones that we elect
it's We the People they neglect
They say by "conquest or consent"
Under "one world" government

if this happens to us we have only ourselves to blame…

There will be no more… life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness

Nothings guaranteed
Just responsibility
With the taxes are paid
The laws obeyed
Start living your life free

The generations that sacrificed
The generations that fought and died
The generations that gave their lives
To give our generation the "good life"

Nothing's guaranteed
After all that we've achieved
it might not be fair
But, it's the best you'll ever see
it's the best you ever will...
