Lady Liberty Lifts Her Lamp

Arlington stands quiet at break of day
The First and Second Amendment are here
So that each and every one of us may have a say


Stomp their guts out
Do it with a smile
Kick their butts about
And do it with some style

It's time we took a stand
It's time to grow a spine
It's time to not compromise
It is time to draw the line


When are we going to stop tossing soft balls
When are we going to quit rising above
When are we going to quit giving away it all
And wanting from the prime time slime

A small bit of love

They're never going to play fair
They'll never give anybody a break
That doesn't slavishly believe everything
They believe and everything else is fake

They skewer our candidates without mercy
They slander deceive destroy and lie
We must look within our own ranks now
And do it with unblinking eyes

How far do you think our ideas are going to go
If everybody hangs their head in shame
Every time some scum bag pretend journalist
Calls you out and calls you names

It's not going to fade off or go away
If you ignore it long enough
We have to stand up and fight back
We have to get a back bone get tough

Not everything is a reasoned argument
Our side gets demeaned with an attitude
Too many nice guys think the answer is
To stand there and dribble out platitudes

Push it back push it down their throats
Hoist them up and hang them out to dry
Quit being surprised if they ambush you
Quit sheepishly meekly uttering

It's something you deny

Ask them
What is it they think they're doing
It's obvious it's not the truth
They're in anyway respecting or pursuing

That's just another path to grief
All it ever really means is we're the ones
Who are not supposed to have any core beliefs

Men and women have died for this freedom
I don't think it's too much to ask
For anyone to endure a bit of discomfort
When we put ourselves to the task

Men and women have lost limbs and eyes
In the name of honor and integrity
I don't think it's too much to ask
Leaders to show some mental agility

Quit being wusses and push overs
Quit slamming down harder on us than them
We need to throw out our losers
We need our vision bright not dim

5,000 people have been killed in Chicago
During the same time period of the Afghan War
I'm sick of some silly slop headed liberals
Telling me what I need and what

My guns are for

No more crossing the aisle
No more hand shakes and smiles
No more selling us out and saying
It's wonderful to stand in a steaming pile

No more middle of the road toads
No more whores keeping score by way of moderation
No more back stabber power grabbers
Undermining those who fight for our nation

Let me make this clear so no one
Misunderstands so there is no doubt
This isn't some lame positioning game
This is our Soul and lives we're talking about
