live by the laws of the land
that keep us safe and warm
rules we are taught to live by
some sworn to protect us all
pay our taxes do that 9 to 5
dues we pay along the way
follow them all as one should
constitutional given right
say and speak our minds
granted by this great country
our very life and birthright
do our time each day each night
no matter what must walk right
human decency mere utterance
bellows from Washington steps
law abiding citizen
that phrase that sound it makes
as if their is justice and right
tell now where does justice lie
that piece of paper speaks of
where was my justice my right
when those who come to slight
when pushed against a wall
each day and each every night
day after day after day torment
so long mind can not take
anymore relentless pursuing
of something never is or was
tell me law man of the land
where were you when they come
have you stopped them saved me
torturing me and maiming a mind
yes i see now those grey lines
you’re right i’m right who’s right
law abiding citizen
strike for strike each lesson
learned seared burned into souls
feed a belly or die death so slow
which would you choose first second
that third turn a blind eye pretend
into your hands the power to stops
your sworn oath of protect us all
what our legal systems says and does
guilty punished and all of the above
law abiding citizen
still years go by still screaming
when will you stop those dark beings
make them stay away tormenting
someone who wishes to live on
here in my world this tiny ball
by the gods and god any deity
i played by the rules now look
what it gotten is getting me
for you all know can only see
one way and it is that right road
I AM AN AMERICAN
and yes a
LAW ABIDING CITIZEN
