You can live your life of ease
If you obey the hierarchy
I never could see, I never knew why
I shouldn't stand and speak my mind
You keep your mouth shut and your ok
You get to live through one more day
But I had to say this
And I had to say that
And they stuck a knife right in my back
Closed the lid to bury me
But while there's still
A breath of life in me
Left me for dead
But there's no way that I
Will ever give in
I will survive
Traitors prosper, rebels die
And then they say
He was no friend of mine
Oh I never say no when I want to say yes
I never go along and vote for the obvious
Just because of my
Point of view
My expiry date's long overdue
Oh you never can tell
What's going on in their minds
They write your death warrant
But return your smile
While there's still a breath in me
I will not lie down
They won't get me
Left me for dead
There's no way that I
Will ever give in
I will survive
I will survive
While there's still a breath in me
I won't lie down
They won't get me
Left me for dead
There's no way that I
Will ever give in
I will survive
While there's still a breath in me
I won't lie down
They won't get me
