In Our Hands
In Our Hands
© 2012 Sahlen/Starburst

With far too much time on our hands, too numb to realize
The burden of the ecstasy of freedom there in lies
Too spoiled in our modern age, too deaf to promulgate
A meaningful existence as a human delegate

It's in our hands to take a stand for necessary change
To not allow corruption to politically derange
Eroding all our valued rights so dear to you and me
By precious blood our heroes paid to keep us living free
To stem the tide we'll stand our ground in solidarity
It's in our hands to now take down this corporate tyranny

Nibbling at the parasites gathering deep inside
Wondrous notions, always known, now too criticized
Retail vision forgeries, confusing tiny pills
Lobotomizing fantasies, warping our free wills

(repeat chorus)

Enraptured by the atmosphere, addicted to the plot
Corrupted by the daily news, misinformation bought
Too blind to see inside ourselves where lessons once were taught
Too fractured by the things we fear to seek what must be sought

(repeat chorus)

Despite the daily rush of life and sundry other tasks
It's not too late to question things we know just must be asked

(repeat chorus)
