The Bill, For The Bill of Rights

The political-democracy picking the aristocracy
Like the slaves picked cotton
We the people are totally forgotten
We the people are totally forgotten

Poor people pay the ultimate price
Coersive persuasion -a mind control device
Willingly give your life as a sacrifice
Then die for a cause that violates human rights laws

Economic sanctions aimed at the poor
Carpet bombing civilians desecrates laws of war
When government becomes God, for economic gains
The Bill of Rights wanes, wanes, wanes

Zero tolerance for violence is galore, in the times of war
The whole world saturated with the Blood of The Poor
The cost of freedom, war's consummate whore
Business interests favor war, as it's savior
