They're killing babies in the name of Freedom

We've been down that sorry road before

They let us hang around a little longer than they should have

And it's too late to fool us anymore


We've seen the ones who killed the ones with vision

Cold-blooded murder right before your eyes

Today they hold the power and the money and the guns

It's getting hard to listen to their lies.


Chorus:

And I've just got to wonder what my Daddy would've done

If he'd seen the way they turned his dream around

I've got to go by what he told me, try to tell the truth

And stand your ground

DON'T LET THE BASTARDS GET YOU DOWN


Mining roads

Killing farmers

Burning down schools full of children

Fighting communism


Chorus:

And I've just got to wonder what my Daddy would've done

If he'd seen the way they turned his dream around

I've got to go by what he told me, try to tell the truth

And stand your ground

DON'T LET THE BASTARDS GET YOU DOWN
