lyrics

ACTED UPON

Staring down the barrel of your future
with a pistol pointed at your past
don’t be fooled into thinking
that any of this is gonna last

not your safety
not your freedom
not your money
not your time
not your rights
not your dignity
your privacy
or pride

Portable smokescreen in the palm of your hand
while the war machines roll across the land
(the land of the free)

In the game of life you’ll be just a pawn
Unless you act you’ll be acted upon
You get one life and it don’t last long
Stand up and act or be acted upon

Who do you trust, who can you trust
your leaders diseased with corruption and lust
what will you do, what can you do, when
you’re helping the watchmen watch over you

The leaders you elected to protect your dreams
they’re picking your pockets and running their schemes

Absolute power corrupts absolutely
we’ve seen it and it’s a fact
time to rise and shine and then absolutely
Take the Power Back
(in the home of the brave)

In the game of life you’ll be just a pawn
Unless you act you’ll be acted upon
You get one life and it don’t last long
Stand up now or be acted upon

if you let others fool you
into thinking that they rule you
you’re not living just being
acted upon

game of life

game of life

just a pawn

just a pawn

stand up now

stand up now
