A visitor from the past...

I had a dream the other night, I didn't understand,
A figure walking through the mist, with flintlock in his hand.
His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed.
He tookoff his three-cornered hat, and speaking low he said:

"We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty.
We wrote the constitution as a shield from tyranny.
For future generations, this legacy we gave.
In this, the land of the free and home of the brave."

"The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you'd always keep.
But tyrants labored endlessly, while your parents were asleep.
Your freedom gone, your courage lost, you're no more than a slave,
In this, the land of the free and home of the brave."

"You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun.
Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.
On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent,
Although, you have no voice in choosing, how the moneys spent."

"Your children must attend a school that doesn't educate,
Your christian values can't be taught, according to the state.
You read about the current news, in a regulated press,
You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the i.r.s."

"Your money is no longer made of silver of gold.
You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled.
You pay for crimes that make our nation turn from God in shame, 
You've taken satan's number, as you've traded in your name."

"You've given government control, to those who do you harm,
So they can padlock churches and steal the family farm.
And keep our country deep in debt, put men of God in jail.
Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail."

"Your public servants don't uphold the solemn oath they've sworn,
Your daughters visit doctors so their children won't be born.
Your leaders ship their artillery, and guns to foreign shores,
and send your sond to slaughter, fighting other peoples wars."

"Can you regain the freedom, for which we fought and died,
Or don't you have the courage, or the faith to stand with pride?
Are there no more values, for which you'll fight to save?
Or do you wish your children, live in fear and be a slave?"

"Sons of the republic, arise and take a stand!
Defend the constitution, the supreme law of the land.
Preserve our great republic, and each God-given right,
and pray to God to keep the torch of freedom burning bright."

As I woke he vanished, in the mist from which he came,
His words were true, we are not free, we have ourselves to blame.
For even now as tyrants, trample each God-given right.
We only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight.

If he stood by your bedside, in a dream, while you're asleep,
And wonders what remains of our rights he fought to keep?
What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave?
Is this still the land of the free and home of the brave??????
