Steemit Openmic Week 100 - Original Song 'It Didn't Have To Be' by 'We The Patsies'

in #openmic3 years ago (edited)

It Didn't Have To Be

Everywhere I go
Everything I see
The past begat the future
In the land of the free

It ain't about the money
Or the standing army
It's about what we should have done
It didn't have to be

Oh take the red pill down
Oh and take another look around
You'll see

Everywhere I go
Things are getting bright
Things are getting better
From darkness into light

It's all for the best
It's the flame of the west
The first time ever seen
In about a century

Oh take the red pill down
Oh and take another look around
You'll see

Generations lost
On a mountain of pain
The blood and the cost
Praying never again

As I walk into friendly fire
Is it abandon or just desire
Preaching to the choir

It ain't about the Russians
It's about the free
And the evil that we should have faced
In nineteen-sixty-three

Oh take the red pill down
Oh and take another look around
You'll see

Now we must take it on
That's how it's gotta be
And things will get better
In your land when you're free

There is no other way
Justice for JFK
I hope we live to see it
Live to see that day

Oh take the red pill down
Oh and take another look around
You'll see

Sort:  

Takes me right back to the late 60's early 70's...

Yup, the Golden Age of Rock and Roll!

Awesome Lyrics dude. Nice guitar ¡Cheers!
