When the people lead the leaders will have to follow and all their alibis they will have to

Swallow and it's you that has the authority for the one who is right is the majority

When the people lead people take the lead children you've got to take your lead or you shall

Be led astray

So as long as someone else controls your history the truth shall remain just a mystery for

You can lead a horse to the water but you cannot make him drink you can put a man through

School but you cannot make him think

When the people lead people take the lead children you've got to take your lead or you shall

Be led astray

Watch them try to hide this world's imposition but like disease that has come around from

Remission when it seems as if it has left your person all the while it has only worsened

When the people lead people shall take the lead children you've got to take your lead or you

Shall be led astray
