What They Gonna Do To You
words and music by Neal Fox

Lock you up without a trial
Deny your rights and all the while
The man has got an evil smile
He takes delight in what they gonna do to you

Bash your brains out with a club
Break your fingers to the nub
And with a stroke your life is scrubbed
And here's the rub, they they don't care who they do it to

Tell me mister, what's my crime
I'm not cut out for doing time
My wife is hanging on the line
My kids are asking, "What they gonna do to you?"

They tell me I'm a terrorist
I said I'm not, then they got pissed
They drew their guns, I'm glad they missed
I'm waiting here. I guess I'll have to see it through
Oh, oh, oh
I guess I'll have to see it through

Bridge 1:
When I was born the land was free
America was you and me
I served my time. Went over seas
Then worked all day to feed my family
But something's changed, it's not my home
The shades are drawn, we're all alone
We live in fear of things unknown
The signs were there but no one cared to see

I always try to do what's right
My friends all told me that I might
Attract their anger, bring a fight
The country's changed
You don't know what they'll do to you

But all I did was search the net
I'm not a spy, I'm not a threat
He gave me one last cigarette
And through his sweat said, "What they gonna do to you!"
Oh, oh, oh
"What they gonna do to you!"

Bridge 2
And now I'm gone without a trace
A simple man without a face
No judge or jury sentenced me
I sit alone and bear the endless time
Their doctor says I'm seeing things
He fills me up with drugs he brings
Reality's a fleeting thing
When searching for the truth becomes a crime

Bridge 3
We danced, we sang the night away
We partied till the break of day
And nothing could have stopped us then
We lived as though our lives were in a dream
But freedom ended over night
We gave it up without a fight
The dream has faded with the light
The greatest loss the world has ever seen
