I’m seeing clear for the first time
I’ve watched a couple decades pass on by
We are born to breed the grand illusion
Through the oligarchy’s eyes
With all of the war and all of the greed
And all the toxic hate it feeds
And for what?
So a handful of rich white men can succeed

Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down

Some are awake, others still sleeping
Through this paradigm of violence, blood, and lies
We decimate the earth for shareholders
While she slowly wilts and dies
They’re pushing the drugs and they monger the fear
The police state is already here
So for now I pledge allegiance
To the hippies, punks, geeks, and queers

Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down

Don’t bring it down on me
I’m taking a stand for peace

So don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down

Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down on me
Don’t bring it down
(repeat 2x)
