Most people will do almost anything, they?ll follow if you lead
These sheep don?t ever wanna take the time to look around and see
They?re puppets of government that walks softly and carries a big gun
Bombs flying for another nameless mission
Kids dying paying for tuition.

Flags burning hearts hurting here but America is full of love
Both Red and Blue what?s wrong with you?
Would our true leaders please stand up?
It?s as if you all didn?t know, you?re all part of the status quo
Just keep on digging that hole, cause our guns and our capital have lost control.

I am I am I am I am the uncounted, afraid to just endure
I am I am I am I am the mouthpiece of our tired and our poor
We can?t even fix the divide within our borderlines
Our parents tried in vain to ease the pain of going against the grain.

Most people will do almost anything to avoid dropping the bomb
These hero?s don?t ever wanna have to re-live Vietnam
We?re all puppets of a government, who made this mistake once before
A whole generation paid for that war
30 years later and they still want more

Tried in vain to ease the pain (what do we do?)

Going against the grain
