I'm Walkin' the Line
Lyrics
Tryin' to be the best I can be
Lock 'n load to spread democracy
Days of thinkin' are long gone
I'm a believer, right or wrong
I follow the rules whatever they be
Wall Street 'n D.C. tell me I'm free
Look ma no hands my believin' is good
I'm believin' like a believin' kiss ass should

The world is changin'
'N I'm walkin' the line

Mr. Tax Man tax away
Tax everything in every way
Mr. Banker now look what you found!
More money to make that suckin' sound!
'N if I slip up 'n want to fight
Hero cops know how to make me right
Take me to court 'n give me a cell
Professional enforcers of perpetual hell

The world is changin'
'N I'm walkin' the line

I think there is a different way
By learning from our yesterdays
In finding a better way to live
I look at me in dismay
How I struggle to always stay
In my journey I can't ever say
Why I don't stop caring
'N how it's always daring
To dream

How much more do ya need to loose
Until you realize there's less to choose
Dreams are worth no more than life
Without freedom what good are rights?
So I keep myself lookin' straight
Get in line and take my fate
I'm what you call a new man now
I'm an American but don't ask me how

The world is changin'
'N I'm walkin' the line
The world is changin'
'N I'm walkin' the line
