Dystopian Democratic Republic

Comply – or else
Innocence is no excuse for your self-defence
You must obey
See things in the light they say

If you are not with them
You must be against them
That is the way their thinking goes
They see themselves as royalty
Doubting them is a travesty
Anywhere they look there are foes

They can see you
They can hear you
Any step you take they can follow
If they want what is yours
They will take it
If they take it by force
They will make it
You’ll be lucky to see tomorrow

If you were an individual
A free man, not a criminal
Remember the warnings you have heard
You are free to speak
Free to make your stand
Keeping your head low, not saying a word

The whole world is open wide
As the law is on their side
There is no crime they can’t get away
Mr Blacks of this world are the powers that be

It goes without a mention
Who would be left to question
There is no crime they can’t get away
Mr Blacks of this world are the powers that be

For rebellion there is penalty
Arresting minds leads to cruelty
Behind nameless doors without a key
No matter how long and hard they try
You know well that you would rather die
Pleading guilty you’ll never be free
