of john playing it appeared on the web. Which is good for all of us as its a great song!

What can I be?
Make me so that Iím right for your society
What do I have to sacrifice?
There is no equal opportunity
Donít even call this your democracy
16,000 laws got passed this year and
No one knows anything

Iím of this earth right from her breath
Iím from this land US, I donít regret
Youíre telling me to obey what is wrong
Iím gonna defy you, defy you strong.
Defy you strong and on and on and on.
A long time Iíll be waiting.

Give a girl a doll and stick her in a dress.
Give a boy a gun teach him how to address
And stick them in their place
Stick them in the place
Keep your system safe
You stick us in your place

Donít you let them bring you down,
Keep your head up, move back on your feet
It is your life that they are looking for
You are infinite so superlative
Let it all go
Wonít you let it be?
Let it be.

So what can I be?
Make me so that Iím right for your society
What do I have to sacrifice?
There is no equal opportunity
Donít even call this your democracy
16,000 laws got passed last year
and no, no one knows anything

Iím of this earth right from her breath
Iím of this land US, I donít regret
But if youíre telling me Iím doing something wrong
When Iím not I will defy you strong
No matter what nationality
If youíre suffering youíve got to fight
And I hope my brotherís and sisterís say
That theyíre losing their rightsÖ
Stick a flag in a school room,
And you make the children pledge
To a country
That was founded on an edge
Of a knife in an Indian skin
Donít even try, donít even begin
Of telling me of your crusader deeds
Your justification step up and lead

Donít you let them bring you down,
Keep your head up, move back on your feet,
And if itís your life that they all been looking for,
You got it infinite so superlative
Let it all go
Wonít you let it be?
Let it be

So what can I be?
Make me so that Iím right for your society
What do I have to sacrifice?
There is no equal opportunity
Donít even call this your democracy
16,000 laws got passed last year
and no, no one knows anything

Iím of this earth right from her breath
Iím from this land and I donít regret
But if youíre telling me to obey what is wrong
Iím gonna defy you, defy you strong
Defy you strong..
And on and on and onÖ.
Long time Iíll be waiting..
Long time long time
Long time.. long time.. long timeÖ
ÖIíll be waiting.
