Rolling With The Punches

     
 

Here in America we used to be free

But we traded it in for false security

Rolling with the punches

 

They tell us itís worth it no matter the cost

Itís securityís won not the libertyís lost

Rolling with the punches

 

Just believe in the system in our God you must trust

Either youíre one of them or either youíre one of us

Rolling with the punches

 

Yeah they tell us that weíre safe we got nothiní to fear

But Iím afraid the boogie man is already here

Roll roll roll

Rolling with the punches

 

Better play by the rules better make no mistakes

ĎCause the eyes in the sky watch every move you make

Rolling with the punches

 

Youíre video taped and your phones are tapped

And itís for your own good and itís a load of crap

Rolling with the punches

 

To board a plane you got to pays some dues

You got to spread your cheeks let Ďem smell your shoes

Rolling with the punches

 

Be a good little number speak not a word

Donít you think any thoughts just be a part of the herd

Roll roll roll

Rolling with the punches

 

Well I heard some screaming and it wasnít any joke

It was the sound of freedom going up in smoke

Rolling with the punches

 

In the modern times oh they ainít so cool

The intelligent people are being led by the fools

Rolling with the punches

 

Itís a new world order itís a cyiní shame

Itís the Bill Of Rights goiní up in flames

Rolling with the punches

 

Itís the cops are the Army and the army is the cops

I donít know where it started pretty sure where it stops

Roll roll roll

Rolling with the punches

 

Rolling with the punches

Rolling with the punches

 

Ooo ooo ooo ooo

Ooo ooo ooo ooo

Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo

 

Ooo ooo ooo ooo

Ooo ooo ooo ooo

Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo

 

So we carry our papers and our photo IDs

And we choose to be chained instead of remaining free

And the way things are going though I might be wrong

Someday I could be arrested just for writing this song

Roll roll roll

Rolling with the punches

 

And should it ever happen and I do get stamped

Won't you pay me a visit in the detainment camp

Iíll be rolling with the punches

 

In the meantime Iíll continue to speak my mind

Itís the First Amendment they made it easy to find

When they were rolling with the punches

 

Itís my right of birth that Iíll defend to the death

If this is still America or whatever is left

Rolling with the punches

 

Itís my familyís home and where I choose to be

But I donít feel so safe I donít feel so free

Roll roll roll

Rolling with the punches

 

Rolling with the punches

Rolling with the punches

 

Ooo ooo ooo ooo

Ooo ooo ooo ooo

Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo

 

Repeat
