Power of Words

LYRICS

“Old fashioned,” “out of date.”
“Throwback to another time.”
“Sky-god lover,” “jingoistic.”
Clueless on the world’s design.

The name calling may change;
The sentiment’s the same:
When the self-righteous rule,
Hypocrisy becomes the game.

The fingers point, noses rise.
Time for holier than thou.
Freedom to think is ratcheted down.
The law becomes what they allow.

“Libertards,” “tree-hugger freaks.”
“Lovers of government’s teat.”
“Heathens,” “Worldly fools.”
Nothing but tenderfeet.

The name calling may change;
The sentiment’s the same:
When the self-righteous rule,
Hypocrisy becomes the game.

The fingers point, noses rise.
Time for holier than thou.
Freedom to think is ratcheted down.
The law becomes what they allow.
