41. KMFDM "New American Century"

&list=RDKYq90TEdxIE

Count your blessings, walk the line
Don't move too fast or fall behind
There are rules you must obey
They get re-written by the day
Don't do this - don't say that
Your every move is logged and tracked
By the all oppressive eye
Spy satellites in friendly skies

The new american century
Has only just begun
No one exempt from the tragedy
Counterattack start pushing back

Fight the power that chokes your speech
Fight the power that makes you bleed
Fight the power that propogates lies
To keep you weak
Keep you in line

No one dares to say a word
Our panic drives all human herds
In the land where cash is king
Our silence bought and sold for free
The future's banging on our door
When real I.D. will be the law
Love thy neighbor and turn him in
It's call patriotism

The world is watching in disbelief
Chanting shame on you
How can you stand by so quietly
Letting them rape your liberties

Fight the power that chokes your speech
Fight the power that makes you bleed
Fight the power that propogates lies
To keep you weak
Keep you in line
Fight the power that reigns you in
Divides and conquers
Defines your sin
Fight the power for one and all
Before the power swallows us whole

BRIDGE:
Those who cannot learn from history
Are doomed to repeat it!

You can't be bothered or concerned
You see no reason for alarm
Prejudice, religion hate
Usher in new mandate
Absolute and resolved
One nation under one god
Lack of interest has its price
As we're stripped of all our rights
