A Rebellion


I want to be marchin’ and also yellin’
I want to be part of a rebellion,
Beside my brothers I want to fight
On the side of the truth, and the right,
I want my voice and beliefs to be heard
From the speeches I speak and my written word,
My resistance will be honest and it will be strong
As I fight with my muscles and also a song,
And I don’t care what others are sayin’
I want to be part, of a rebellion.

I want to see a dictatorship fallen
Then I want to hear my name callin’,
If I die I want to be buried in a shallow grave
With the proud and loyal and the brave,
Never will I be known to beg or to barter
If I give my life I want to be remembered as a martyr,
I will resist all authority and all control
Freedom and liberty is my ultimate goal,
Years from now when our stories are tellin
I want to be remembered for a rebellion.

I want to see freedom and justness for all
I want to see that painted and papered on a wall,
And inside the information that spies have sold
I want to be mentioned and my actions told,
To any politicians or anyone wearing a crown
To that one person of power I will never bow down,
This rebellion is for the ones who sweat and toils
And not for the ones seeking wealth and spoils,
I don’t want to be thought of as a thief or a felon
When people think back of this rebellion.

I want a land were we all are treated the same
Where we accept our own guilt and our own blame,
Where judges and politicians they do not exist
They are the dream of the past and a forgotten mist,
Men and women they will control their own land
We do it not for money or ego to make our stand,
We the people are a committee and we do what is true
Fairness and equality is all that we pursue,
Wealth and power I will never be sellin’
I hope to be remembered in this rebellion.

The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
