We can…

We can be citizens
Or we can be serfs
We can value ourselves
Or be subjects
To high-handed
Arbitr’y worth

We can walk tall in grace
We can cower and crawl
We can take back our place
Or just let the chips fall
We can live out our days
With our backs to a wall
Or chase out the demons
Oppressing us all

We can hide in denial
Or we can be brave
We can strive for some freedom
Or we can be slaves
We can try to be People
With nothing to lose
Or we can be sheeple
Forever abused

For we can do better
Or we can give up
We can keep ourselves down
Or we all can rise up
We can wake up
And wise up
And pick a new path
Or remain as the source
Of a huge cosmic laugh
