  • Have a drink, they’re buying
    Bottom of, bottle of denial

    Big guy, big eye watching me
    Have to wonder what it sees
    Progress laced with ramifications
    Freedom’s big plunge

    Pull the innocent from a crowd
    Raise the sticks, then bring ‘em down
    If they fail to obey
    If they fail to obey

    For every tool they lend us
    A loss of independence

    I pledge to my grievance to the flag
    ‘Cause you don’t give blood, then take it back again
    We’re all deserving of something more

    Progress, taste it, invest-it-all
    Champagne breakfast for everyone

    Break when the innocent when they’re proud
    Raise the stakes, then bring ‘em down
    If they fail to obey
    If they fail to obey

    Pledge my grievance to the flag
    Aw come on, don’t give blood, then take it back again
    We’re all deserving of something more

    I wanna breathe
    I wanna see
    I wanna taste
    Everyone I see
    I wanna run, when I’m up high
    I wanna run to the sea
    I only want life to be
    I just wanna be
    I will feel alive as long as I am free
