Chorus


Lyrics
They come they take
Its never enough because they cant relate
To the real world, thinking that the oyster is just for the pearl
They start those wars
They want to own the land sea and all the stars
And right those wrongs
they change their history with their poison forked tongues.

All right, whos they?
A maybe its the government of today
Or B for the big business man who thinks the whole world revolves around him
Or C for the corrupt official for A and B he be the man in the middle
Or D for discoverer for Cook and Columbus and the pirate plunderers.

Doesnt mean I aint got no fight now just because I dont got a gun
The lyrical is heavier than lead and this guitar is my canon
Just like my Martin and Mahatma I'm gonna love Im gonna over come
Maybe its E for all of the above but I dont want to be

Wrong way going down the one way road
Wrong way going down the one way road
Wrong way going down the one way road
Gonna turn it all around gonna back it on up
Wrong way going down the one way road
Wrong way going on a one way road
Wrong way going down the one way road
Gonna turn it all around gonna back it on up

These men who they say we should follow
BUT we cant follow men if their hearts are hollow and
Mmmm yes how can we respect puppet regimes we do not elect?
Straight up straight up like Pinocchio
And every time they lie man the fire just grows so
Nows time to be part of the solution
Raise your fist if you believe in revolution

Doesnt mean I aint got no fight now
Just because I dont got a gun
The lyrical is heavier than lead and
This guitar is my canon
Just like my Martin and Mahatma
I'm gonna love Im gonna over come
Maybe its E for all of the above but I dont want to be
