Democracy is scary
a thousand voices screaming out into the void
every time we trust the masses
we soon skulk back in fear
what if they’re wrong?
but when the pendulum swings the opposite direction
there is no worse fate:
closed hearts, closed minds
an iron fist clutching the intrepid heart of a teenage nation.
Lady Liberty, hold your torch high
shine the way for all to see
the glorious future that waits for
us who dare to let you lead.
