Originally written during the 2001 USA Presidential elections, this track expressed my subconscious emotions at the time. Though not politically inclined, I was nonetheless disturbed by what would come to pass... a moron in the office of the President of the United States, G.W.B. This is a re-examination of the song I wrote at the time. Looking at it now the lyrics are amazingly creepy cool.

lyrics

They gotta hate...
They gotta wait...
They gotta hate to wait.

You've got to choose
You've got to lose
You've got to...
You've got to...

They've got no rhythm
You've got the time
They've got not reason
They've got no rhyme

They've got one chance
To move you.

They got no reason
They got some time
They got no reason
They got no rhyme

This is why
It's Amerika

In Amerika - you have the right
In Amerika - you have the rights
In Amerika - you can do anything
In Amerika - you can do anything

In the social-political climate
so you see
21st century
21st century
Stand up
Stand, stand, stand
To Fall back
We have the freedom
The freedom
Amerika
The right
It is our chance
To
Exercise
Our Rights
Right, right, right
Don't stand by [Even though you knew the way]
Don't stand by [Even though you couldn't say]
Don't stand by [Even through the truth of it]
You couldn't see past Television Six

You wouldn't see the Truth of it [Don't stand by]
You wouldn't see the Whole of it [Don't stand by]
You wouldn't want the best of it [Don't stand by]
You couldn't stand the truth.

One step closer to the edge
One step back
One step nearer to the edge
Two steps back
Three steps closer to the edge
Four steps back

In Amerika, you have the right to choose
In Amerika, you have the right to lose
In Amerika, you have the right
In Amerka
You have the right

In Amerika, you have the right to choose
In Amerika, you have the right to lose
In Amerika, you have the right
In Amerka
You have the right

One step nearer to the edge
Two steps back
Three steps nearer to the edge
Four steps back

It's one chance
It's one time
It's your need
It's night line [revolt]
I can't stand [revolt]
these demands [revolt]
theres no [revolt]
certain man [revolt]
[Revolt] Our chance
[Revolt] Our Time
[Revolt] In Need
[Revolt] side line
[RECANT] you can
[RECANT] we can
[REVOLT] there no
[REVOLT] certain man

One step, nearer to the edge
Two steps back
Three steps closer to the edge
Four... steps... back...

One step nearer to the edge...
Two steps back.
Three steps closer to the edge...
Four steps back.

Even though you can't decide...
The country will prevail. Provide.

One step. Closer to the edge.
Two steps back.
Three steps closer to the edge.
Four steps back.

It's you can't [revolt]
It's we can't [revolt]
There's no [revolt]
Certain Man [revolt]

One step [revolt]
Closer to the edge [It's time]
Two steps back [Inside - revolt]
Whole steps, closer to the edge
Four steps back.
