PROTECT MYSELF FROM ME


Billions are spent, on a hopeless war.
But when dollars can be made…
there will always be more.
It seems a losing battle is what they would rather wage.
Nothing ever changes, so that their jobs can be saved.

Everything’s a drug, and it’s so easy now to see
who it is that profits from this great hypocricy.

Take away my freedoms to protect myself from me.

Everything’s a drug, in the world today.
But mine are all bad, and yours are O.K.?
The push to re-legalize is beginning to get strong
Tell the gangs with badges to go out and get a real job.

Everything’s a drug, and it’s so easy now to see
who it is that profits from this great hypocricy.
Take away my freedoms to protect myself from me.

Protect myself from me!

The only war is within ourselves.
When we go to fight it
we could all use help.
There’s always been a waiting list to rehabilitate
But the prison-industrial complex never has a wait.

Everything’s a drug, and it’s so easy now to see
who it is that profits from this great hypocricy.
Take away my freedoms to protect myself from me.v

Protect myself from me!
