I will celebrate this 4th of July with great love for my country and my fellow countrymen. Also though, we are in a time of great paranoia and personal devestation at what the future may hold. Despite what many will tell you, our country is strong, but our will and dedication to this great experiment of democracy is falling. I've said it before that I think we are spoiled as a country, unable to make any sacrifice for the greater good. This is misguided. The world will not end, this country will not fall unless we are unable to rise up in it's defence. I ask you all to really sit and think about what it means to be an American? What are our obligations and what are our benefits. Would you want to live in anouther country? I wouldn't, this is the greatest place on earth. We have to keep our competitive edge and lend a hand to all our fallen. We have to take responsibility for our own lives and rise up through hard work and dedication and not rely on others or the state for help. Community is everything, and we as a country are a community. Every race and creed, the tired, the hungry, the sick and the strong, we all have a responsibility to give our all to make sure that the experiment continues, and this great nation carries on. Will you stand up and fight for your country? I will. Here is a little song for you I wrote. I'm not sure it goes with my little rant above, but I picked the song out first so just bare with it and hopefully it entertains you for a few minutes. This is what I felt as the paranoia was mounting. We all have moments of weakness, but it's how you respond to them that makes you who you are. I respond with the pen, try to exorcise the demons so to speak. Have a Happy 4th of July! Love your family and friends, stand up for what you believe in and play a part in this representative goverment.
This feelings contagious having nothing but pain & selling my soul for pay vacation, drugs and lays Through back alley deals the world's ruled with fear Keep us fat with steer marijuana, porn and beer I try to be fearless confronted by tear gas planes raining pain Watching the buildings crash We have to act fast or we'll be outlasted sealed in a casket one last gasp of air left but fear not fear glocks not pot fear blocks of rock Watt's and cops fear the flock racing the clock fear being locked in a box Hear soldiers coming firing squad gunning running fast as I can my mind buzzing Search for a place to hide before blood burns in fire my body so tired but not quite ready to die All that I wish is a chance to be free and not have to pray there's a God that can save me What I seek is to live a life of peace and not have to pray there's a God that can save me Alone I plead for destruction to cease and not have to pray there's a God that can save me It doesn't take long to cause someone harm but nobody's even alarmed we've all become pawns Controlled by monsters pedofiles, terror sponsors Politicians in concert everybody's lost too Poxin poison cyanide and toxin What you need I got some your soul won't blossom Drug addicted disease inflicted nuclear fission vision's conflicted This is the world that we're all livin in Slowly we're marching into oblivian but fuck it everybody's living this mess Ritalin mixed with meth think they Eliot Ness Fucking homosapians raping kids again killing their kin living in blatant sin Not afraid to hurt cause they're already cursed We need a rebirth take the worst and purge All that I wish is a chance to be free and not have to pray there's a God that can save me What I seek is to live a life of peace and not have to pray there's a God that can save me Alone I plead for destruction to cease and not have to pray there's a God that can save me I feel weak, meek dead on my feet can't sleep, freak future's looking bleak Knees bleeding from praying for better days I'm reeling from all this pain on display Perversion and lust hearts filled with discust cuss, do enough to avoid a drug bust with some luck we might just survive to fry but in the afterlife still strive for the light but today we blaze a man made damnation TV nipple fed a new age sedation slaving everyday slowly to our graves save face, so fake in the dark we are depraved and we fight and we kill cause that's how we're built pleasure in misery perverse and we get thrills Nothing to do but wait for this place to blaze a world in flames destroyed, see who is saved. All that I wish is a chance to be free and not have to pray there's a God that can save me What I seek is to live a life of peace and not have to pray there's a God that can save me Alone I plead for destruction to cease and not have to pray there's a God that can save me
