Lies! Such blatant lies you love to say.
Lies! Don’t let the truth get in your way.
Fear! Fear the changes coming round.
Fear! You are trembling toe to crown.
Life! It is dynamic in its change.
Life! Old ways are lost but new ways gained.

From the time you were a child
disrespect you have reviled.
You were born unto ruling caste.
You thought life at pinnacle would last.
There was an order preordained
you worshiped status quo not change.
God the Father with God the son
revealed to you how world to run.

But days of blatant misogyny
when women were chained and never free?
Days when credit was in husband’s name
and domestic violence was fair game.
Through a struggle long and hard;
fight so much more than burning bras.
Made a world foreign to you
where equality’s not so skewed.

Lies! Such blatant lies you love to say.
Lies! Don’t let the truth get in your way.
Fear! Fear the changes coming round.
Fear! You are trembling toe to crown.
Life! It is dynamic in its change.
Life! Old ways are lost but new ways gained.

You in Noah’s name and in Ham’s
did enslave your fellow man
and in doctrine of miscegenation
outlawed marriage rights throughout our nation.
Fearing brimstone, fearing fire
you cast homosexuals on the pyre.
Ten Commandments in our courts?
Second Amendment surely flouts.

You claim change is anarchy
when it’s bad for you and good for me.
Democracy’s all well and good
so long as your rule’s understood.
Gerrymander, redraw precinct lines
to keep your ward machine running fine.
Liberal to you is a bad name
but conservative’s just a power game.

Lies! Such blatant lies you love to say.
Lies! Don’t let the truth get in your way.
Fear! Fear the changes coming round.
Fear! You are trembling toe to crown.
Life! It is dynamic in its change.
Life! Old ways are lost but new ways gained.

Rainbow symbol covenant with God
been usurped and in freedom’s name lives on.
Rigid lines without amelioration
will no longer stratify our nation.
Don’t tell me what clothes to wear
long as I hurt no one why should you care?
And your rigid gender views?
Don’t always work outside your pews.

You have lost no human rights
because we no longer fold without a fight.
When you shoot us in the back
and claim order’s under attack?
Pain you’re feeling may be real;
how’s transparency make you feel?
“Uppity” may prove your epithet
when you find that center has moved left.

Lies! Such blatant lies you love to say.
Lies! Don’t let the truth get in your way.
Fear! Fear the changes coming round.
Fear! You are trembling toe to crown.
Life! It is dynamic in its change.
Life! Old ways are lost but new ways gained.
