Take your place!
A-bout face!
Where once stood convictions in
Things you would say,
There now stands restrictions
Your mind sold away,
You once were a symbol of
True strength and heart,
But now you're a warning of
Where the sickness starts,
You stood there and preached
Independence and faith,
You talked of commitment then
Made an about face,
Take Your Place!
A-bout face!
I hope you enjoy that parade of fools.
"Dude, we made $15,000 on tour...
If we don't make $40,000 next time
I'll be fully bummed...
I mean why should we play
To scumbags anyway?
We're on our way to the top!"
(Who cares!!!)
You insist that it's progress to
Cut out your heart,
Then post it for hire and claim
That it's art,
But freedom of statement is what art's about,
Not softened commitments designed
To please the crowd,
Beliefs and convictions are on show today,
If you won't present your's sit down
And TAKE YOUR PLACE!
