Silver as an investment

Independence Day

While I'm a professional, one of my hobbies is songwriting (see this). I wrote this song for Independence Day a couple of years ago.

 

The king’s men
Have betrayed us
Tricked us out of
Our homes

No one else
Gonna save us
We must stand up
On our own

Divided
We’ve been conquered
For too long
We’ve played their game

United
We’d be invincible
So rise up
And shake off our chains

We’ve been fooled
By the banker
The sheriff
And the priest+

We’ve been ruled
By the con men
The scoundrels
And the thieves

Divided
We’ve been conquered
For too long
We’ve played their game

United
We’d be invincible
So rise up
And shake off our chains

Feel
The power
Streaming out
Through our souls

Now Is
The hour
Come together
And let’s roll

Here we are
In the meadow
It is time to
Decide

From afar
The army’s nearing
Are we slaves or
Will we fight?

Divided
We’ve been conquered
For too long
We’ve played their game

United
We’d be invincible
So rise up
And shake off our chains

Feel
The power
Streaming out
Through our souls

Now Is
The hour
Come together
And let’s roll

 

+Notes on the words:

I have nothing against priests. I'm only talking about corrupt priests and false prophets.

I have nothing against home town, Main Street bankers. I'm only talking about banskters.

When I talk about "the army approaching", I'm not talking about fighting our good men and women who honorably serve our country to protect and defend the Constitution and protect our national security. I'm talking about mercenaries who are fighting against the American people.

If you’re an atheist, think of "feel the power streaming out through our souls" as referring to our source of courage, or just change the last word to “soles”.

Notes on the music: The song has a feel like an old Irish fighting song. The drums are similar to U2’s “Bloody Sunday".
