I read a story one day that caused me to think
That the history I knew was wrong.
The stuff that I learned made my heart sink
That my government would hurt us so long.
I read another story, then more and more,
Things started falling in place.
I owe my soul to the company store
Seemed to fit our national disgrace.
The CIA, the MIC, and the powerful banks
They all seem to own our politicians.
They steal our money and build more tanks
While we sit back and give them permission.
The wars we have fought, the people we’ve killed
The history I knew was untrue.
I learned that the rich while we foot the bill
Only use us as if we were fools.
It goes back to the time when this country was founded
The first war we herald as great.
When the rich had the poor fight for Indian ground
The rich won and opened the gate.
I try to tell people, they think that I’m nuts
They nod or they call me CT.
I tell them I’ve read alot and alot
But they can’t let their minds be that free.
I will keep reading because that’s what I do.
I don’t bowl or golf or watch TV.
I’ll learn what I can and pass it along.
To those that think like me.
Information is key, the more that we know
Will open our minds to the past
From what I have learned, the lessons it shows
This chance might be our last.
