Patrick Park – Take It Back lyrics

Well the airwaves ring loud
With all the things they don't say
You writers, you pundits
You're the Judas today

'Cause you sit back and watch
While the world catches fire
And then you don't say a word
While the stakes just get higher

The nsa's listening in
There's a war that won't end
But you fill up my head with all matter of spin
You twist a simple truth 'til it's not what it seems
And The illusion of freedom, it's the real American Dream

So people you've gotta turn your voice to a shout
You gotta open your eyes up and look what's happening right now
'Cause there's a coup going down oh and this is a fact
Soon if you wanna be free you'll have to take it back
If you wanna be free you'll have to take it back

To the callous politician
Who sends boys on killing missions
And then sits back and smiles while the blood money keeps drippin'
Don't say you serve me or anyone else
You're a fuckin' bloodsucker
You're just serving yourself

You send the truth on vacation
And the age of misinformation
Has dawned from the north down to the old slave plantations
And liberty, democracy and all the rest
Are just words that meant one thing
And now mean so much less

But you talk like a saint, so righteous and pure
But while people, they suffer, your pockets get full
You want me to think that you keep this world turning
While the smoke that keeps rising is our future burning

So people you've got to turn your voice to a shout
You gotta open your eyes up and look what's happening right now
'Cause there's a coup going down oh and this is a fact
Soon if you wanna be free you'll have to take it back
If you wanna be free you'll have to take it back

When I finally look out on my last setting sun
I wanna leave the world a better place then when I did come
The time for doing nothings long since come and gone
People open your eyes look at what's going on
