Down By Law – Independence Day lyrics

Well the kids hit the stands and the shit hit the fan
Too much security but not enough maturity
The band took the stage
The kids were in a rage
All the goons were terrified - they knew they were gonna pay
Every young heart in the house that night
Beat a million beats
Clenched fists and a little fright
No one knew who threw the first
But after that it just got worse
We said all we had to say
We did what we had to do
We meant every word we said
You can't stop a riot til it's through
They tried to stop the show
We wouldn't go away
For once every voice screamed together for a day
Don't worry about me, mom and dad
Cause i'll be O. K.
What could I do but join the fight and pray?
We said what we had to say
We did what we had to do
We meant every word we said
Broken bottles, broken bones, and the night was through
