Altering This Course - Rough Vocal Sketch
Lyrics
Altering This Course
© 2013 Gatorlegs & Starburst

Who's lies are those assaulting us, is ignorance so proud?
Smirking with intolerance, working up the crowd
Caustic myth hypocrisy, skips from lie to lie
Brutal rule plutocracy, swears to never die

(chorus)
Let us not turn back the clock to days of long ago
Trashing hard worn progress wreaking tales of woe
Rabid ideology rancid at the source
Stand and fight against this, altering this course

From sea to sea with arrogance denying what we know
Deeply steeped in ignorance intolerance will grow
Awash in xenophobia crushing rights full blown
Hateful homophobia the vicious seeds are sewn

(chorus)
Let's not turn back the clock to days of long ago
Trashing hard worn progress wreaking tales of woe
Rabid ideology rancid at its source
Stand and fight against this, altering this course

Instrumental interlude

(bridge)
Like light there in the darkness, progress thunders on
Consciousness arises, see another dawn

Let's not turn back the clock to days of long ago
Trashing hard worn progress wreaking tales of woe
Rabid ideology rancid at the source
Stand and fight against this, altering this course
