"Are You Ready?" as written by and Alexander Benjamin/winans Richbourg....
Let's say theoretically that you're a patriot who wakes up
one morning and realizes his government has been overtaken
by liars, incompetents and thieves - are you gonna stand up like
Patrick Henry, or just get baked watching Patrick The Starfish?

Are you ready? When things are falling apart
You gotta keep your body moving if the news is getting dark
'Cause no solution can come from moping around
Keep your head above the water and your heart on holy ground
My constitution is forged from Carnegie Steel
Ellis Island, Rosa Parks, America for real
So are you ready to pull your boots on and ride?
Suck it up and slug it out, don't sit and let it slide

Don't let nobody tell you you can't wave your flag and cheer
Say what you think today, don't wait until next year

Are you ready? United people have clout
My fingers push this pencil, but our fist can take 'em out
Our solution depends on how much you care
Are you really gonna fight, or just pretend that you were there?
Our constitution is more than paper and ink
Be there to defend it when it's had too much to drink
So are you ready to stand and sober it up?
The winds of change are flammable and ready to erupt

Don't let nobody tell you you can't fix the stuff that stings
The Liberty Bell may be cracked, but it's loud and it still rings

Are you ready to stop just running your yap?
Stand up like you mean it, put your body in the gap
'Cause no solution can come from being afraid
Of all the filthy maggots getting fat and getting paid
Our constitution is worth my life to defend
Any traitor in the driver's seat must suffer for his sin
So are you ready to fix our government's past?
Don't be your daddy's Democrat, YOU KICK 'EM IN THE ASS!

Yeah, are you ready?
