LATELY I'VE BEEN THINKING ,
'BOUT MY SITUATION ,
BUILDING WALLS AROUND ME ,
WITH THEIR LEGISLATION ,
IF YOU ONLY COULD SEE ,
ALL THE LIES YOU'VE BELIEVED ,
THE WRONG THAT NEEDSUNDOING ,
THERE'S A POWER WE COMMAND ,
IF UNITED WE STAND ,
FIGHTING FOR YOUR RIGHTS .
AND YOU NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU .
I BELIEVE THE BASIC THINGH IN LIFE ,
SHOULD BE FREE ,
HEALTH AND EDUCATION ,
HAVE PTIORITY ,
AND THEY'RE SELLING TO US ,
WHAT WE ALREDY OWN ,
ALL WE TAKE FOR GRANTED ,
THERE ARE LESSONS TO LEARN ,
BUT THE TIDE WE COULD TURN ,
SO IT'S DOWN TO YOU .
AND YOU NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU .
HOLD ON .
EVERY THING'S GONNA BE ALRIGHT .
IF YOU ONLY COULD SEE ,
ALL THE LIES YOU'VE BELIEVED ,
THE WRONG THAT NEEDS UNDOING ,
THERE'S A POWER WE COMMAND ,
IF UNITED WE STAND ,
FIGHTING FOR OUR RIGHTS .
