The thieves dwell among us,

They are robbing us all blind,

They have stolen all of our liberty,

While they tell us to leave our constitution behind.


The central bank first wrested our right to achieve an apex in wealth,

By seizing our right to own slaves,

Claiming that it was all for our national health,

While hoping to avoid making waves.


When technology had thus increased

Until we could profit without slaves and little human labor,

The central bank returned in great deception,

Intending to move against the people like a sloughing beast.


They have intended to resurrect slavery,

By feigning a movement of liberty,

Gaining an absolute authority through treachery,

Yet the blood of freeborn citizens shall be their final delivery.


They dismantled all checks and balances on corporations,

Then married them with government,

Dictating the future of a freeborn nation,

Since a seizure of all privately held resources

is their climatic intent.



for they have outsourced national opportunity,

While commanding that all within prove their ability

To offer them journeyman level work.

The people get that proof from attending their university,

They get the huge loans to do so from the same central bank.


The corporations, universities, or the banks,

Bear no mandate to deliver,

Yet your hard won resources they are at liberty to yank,

They are free to chain you to a wall until you shiver.


There will never be a new day of opportunity,

They pacify you with great lies,

Until you manifest your own leader among them,

Who shall justifiably march forward with great blood in his eyes.
