I can't accept what's been done
I'll question the motives
Of all things under the sun
There's something wrong
When a man is kept down
By another man's hand with a gun
We need to start a fire
To act consciously
To save us from our own defeat
Because there is still a war
That we must eliminate
And save ourselves
From this unconscious state
When you just can't take anymore
And you're being kept down
We've gotta cut our ties
To a life lived in denial
I wish I could strike a match
And set fire to this fucked up empire
I'll never let myself become
Just another apathetic motherfucker
Who knows what we could do
If we would only try
If we turn our heads and walk away
This fire won't survive
