lyrics

It’s more than mortal man can bear.
Those terrorists are everywhere:
on land and sea and in the air.
Network TV bill of fare
daily warns us to prepare
for bugs and bombs and poison air
and weaponry enough to scare
the bravest man to deep despair

And so I very happily
let them take my liberty.
All that they do to me
it’s all for my security
I very happily
let them take my liberty
Can't you see?
It's all for me

They hate our freedom so we’re told,
our way of life so uncontrolled,
our rich, our poor, our young, our old.
I guess their hatred just takes hold
and burrows in and makes them bold
enough to kill and spend their gold
and set in motion plans untold
to get us ALL, … or so we’re told.

And so I very happily
let them take my liberty.
All that they do to me
it’s all for my security
I very happily
let them take my liberty
Can't you see?
It's all for me

Seems strange to me they don’t resent
the other guys who represent
a way of life with free consent
for those who are benevolent.
The only ones they seem intent
to devastate to great extent
are those who’s aero-planes were sent
to bomb them in malevolence

And so I very happily
let them take my liberty.
All that they do to me
it’s all for my security
I very happily
let them take my liberty
Can't you see?
It's all for me

My phone is tapped. My mail is read.
They know the thoughts inside my head.
And the money I deposited
is all reported to the Fed.
They chip my hand, dispense my bread.
I think they watch me go to bed.
I don’t object. I’m glad instead
to be controlled until I’m dead.
