If you don't know it in your heart

The chances are you never will
Freedom comes at a cost
There is no such thing as a victory
That in some way does not include loss

What was payed before
What was given to you
For our freedom and our future
What is it you would do

We must answer to ourselves
We must look within our souls
The world is not merely something
That happens to us as it unfolds

We make our own choices
We decide our own path of action
Not every thing is a negotiation
Not every thing is a bargained transaction

Right is Right
And wrong is wrong
If we only sang what everybody liked
There would be no such thing as song

In this era of compromise and lies
In this era of if ands and buts
I still believe in courage
I still believe in fortitude and guts
