Behind Enemy Lines – As Fascism Takes Root lyrics

Bow down to the demagogues
They gain their power when they prey on your fears
Bow down to the demagogues
They keep their control by feeding your bigotry
Bow down to the demagogues
They keep you safe by denying you freedom
Bow down to the demagogues
They intimidate to discourage dissent
When fascism comes to America
It will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross
As fascism takes root in America
It is welcomed by the sound of thunderous applause
Bow down to the demagogues
They form your opinion with state controlled propaganda
Bow down to the demagogues
They discredit opposition with disinformation
Bow down to the demagogues
They spy on you in the name of manufactured paranoia
Bow down to the demagogues
They imprison subversives to set an example
When fascism comes to America
It will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross
As fascism takes root in America
It is welcomed by the sound of thunderous applause
Bow down to the demagogues
They embrace Christianity to exploit childlike naivety
Bow down to the demagogues
They invoke morality to justify discrimination
Bow down to the demagogues
They disregard the laws that keep you in line
Bow down to the demagogues
They appeal to your patriotism to blindly follow
When fascism comes to America
It will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross
As fascism takes root in America
It is welcomed by the sound of thunderous applause
