If by chance or fate

If you can keep your freedom when all around you
Others are losing theirs and blaming it on you
If you can trust your gut while propaganda surrounds you
And do some research to find out what is true
If you can take and make your life worth living
While being lied about and censored too
If you can do this without forgiving
Then it’s clear it’s freedom that you choose
If you can see the government becoming your master
If you can feel the boot of tyranny on your throat
If you can rise up to avoid this disaster
And realize that it’s useless to vote
If you care to hear as truth is spoken
When others turn a deaf ear to the noise
When commonsense seems all but broken
And common good is not one of life’s little joys
If you can take the heap of all the bullshit that their slinging
And run the risk of censorship from the top
And loose your channel and start again at the beginning
And never bitch or complain or never stop
If you can find a host that seems willing
To pitch the truth for what it’s worth
A simple penny or a single shilling
What’s the price for a better earth
If you can talk to crowds and check your ego
When others applaud or call you a fool
If you can walk the talk when others doubt you
And make commonsense a useful tool
If you can make some sense of all the madness
While others walk around in a daze
If you can laugh in the face of sadness
And see the actors and the stage
If you can do this all while living
And have no doubt that you have won
Then your life will have a new beginning
And your story has just begun
