Here is a song by Edgardo (Gardo Band) which is based on a poem posted a few days back. The lyrics are a little different and posted below. Created a video today:

The Last Real American

Will the last real American
Please turn out the light
Go wherever you will because
All roads lead into the night
Once it’s gone, when it’s gone
When freedom’s gone

Well they threw down a king
Claimed us a land
Patriots would give their lives
They did all that they can
Still the Crown has won
The men are gone, long gone
They’re gone, long gone, long gone

Well a new fight for freedom
May tear this land apart
And when it’s won freedom’s never enough
Life demands it all
If the rich don’t take it
The poor surely will
Best to trust nobody
This side of heaven’s hills
It goes on, will we still ring freedoms song?
Freedom’s gone, yes it’s gone, yeah it’s gone

Now the predators prey on the peoples
And somehow the peoples believe
They are something other than prey meat
Fangs gnash in frustration for the ones that get away
Freedoms gone, yes it’s gone
You know damn well it’s gone
Yes it’s gone, gone, long gone

Well the TV’s been lying to you
Every media shill
Hides a sneering face behind
Bland fake good will
And the games and the distractions
Poison for one and all
Pose as loving nectar from the governments loving heart
Freedom’s gone, yes it’s gone, you know it’s gone
Yes it’s gone, it’s gone, yes it’s gone

Now just to stay alive
Can be the fight of your life
From them that have so little
Can be taken all they have
The last real American please shoot out the door
There ain’t no turning back for a hundred years or more
Freedoms gone, yes it’s gone, you know it’s gone

You got your cult of personality
So blind as you can be
Pills to cure every ill
Till there’s nothing left to feel
Bread, beer and circuses
All the sex you can see
A new war to cheer for every week
Call your misery ecstasy
It’s gone, gone, long gone
It’s gone long gone

Now we don’t need no prince
We don’t need no king
Don’t need no damn queen
Sucking the blood from everyone and thing
Got me an idea! Why don’t you just leave us the hell alone!
Go play your games by yourself, you authoritarian scum
We’re hanging on
Freedom’s not all gone
We’re hanging on, hanging on, hanging on
