    Ode To The Fatherland

    Let's get drunk on their toxic propaganda.
    And then after that, we'll say that we were intoxicated by the lies they forced down our throats; it was induced deceit- we didn't have a choice.

    Ode to the Fatherland

    Let's climb a mountain of misfortune.
    And then after that, we'll say that we prayed for the wrong directions; we chose to travel the terrain of tainted truths- we didn't have a choice.

    Ode to the Fatherland

    Let's sing along to their misspelt, misplaced, mismatched, misshapened ideologies.
    And then after that, we'll say we forgot the lyrics to the songs we're tired of listening to; we were tone deaf to the sounds of honesty- we didn't have a choice.

    Ode to the Fatherland

    Let's buy their quality goods harvested by the sweat of our unpaid labour.
    And then after that, we'll say that we're too rich to be labelled as poor, but too poor to think about being rich. We paraded our shadowed glory like a proud insecurity- we didn't have a choice.

    Ode to the Fatherland

    But then again, let's watch where my fist goes.
    And then after that, we should say the tables have begun to turn.
    We're tired of feigning blindness. Armed with loud mouths and clean minds; you can never cloak the march of resistance.
