Preserving our freedom, one song at a time
LIES, LIES, LIES

Chorus:
Lies, lies, lies. All we get is lies, lies lies
All we get is lies and hate. That’s not what makes this country great
Lies, lies, lies. All we get is lies, hate and fear
We’ll get through it, we’ll survive        
But we never thought — that this — could happen here     

Verse 1:
The first amendment is the core of everything we’re standing for
It’s plain for anyone to see the press is not the enemy
Something here is very wrong and it’s going on far too long

Verse 2:
The rising tide is here to stay but they just look the other way
It’s quite evident to all that we don’t really need a wall
Something here is very wrong and it’s going on far too long

Last chorus:
Lies, lies, lies. All we get is lies, lies lies
All we get is lies and hate. That’s not what makes this country great
Lies, lies, lies. All we get is lies, hate and fear
We will rise above the fray     
Because truth will always persevere
