cause turning the wrenches and breaking his back
was barely enough to but clothes on their backs
and all he could do was just hope for the best
while the ones at the top are laying at rest
he knew that they needed more, so he went off to the war
they only recruit the poor
and too his daughter he says
as he tucks her to bed
darling please get some rest
ill be back before you know it
such a fear inside
but he knew he couldn't show it
thousands of miles away
for country? right, just to get paid
he'll keep their pictures inside
because the thought of home is what keeps him alive
but he knew all along
what hes was doing was wrong
enslaved by their debt we've become
too scared to prove anything wrong
i wanna know why things can not be right
i wanna know why we just have to settle in life
when everything out there seems within our reach
but a price tag keeps anything from happening
established forms of power wont change
so im not going to be their slave
tell me does it sound right
to lie is the only way to survive
we have got to change with the times.
