Independence Day

Independence Day

While I’m a professional, one of my hobbies is songwriting (see this). I wrote this song for Independence Day a couple of years ago.

The king’s men
Have betrayed us
Tricked us out of
Our homes

No one else
Gonna save us
We must stand up
On our own

Divided
We’ve been conquered
For too long
We’ve played their game

United
We’d be invincible
So rise up
And shake off our chains

We’ve been fooled
By the banker
The sheriff
And the priest+

We’ve been ruled
By the con men
The scoundrels
And the thieves

Divided
We’ve been conquered
For too long
We’ve played their game

United
We’d be invincible
So rise up
And shake off our chains

Feel
The power
Streaming out
Through our souls

Now Is
The hour
Come together
And let’s roll

Here we are
In the meadow
It is time to
Decide

From afar
The army’s nearing
Are we slaves or
Will we fight?

Divided
We’ve been conquered
For too long
We’ve played their game

United
We’d be invincible
So rise up
And shake off our chains

Feel
The power
Streaming out
Through our souls

Now Is
The hour
Come together
And let’s roll
