Electable (Give It Up)

Album: Chase This Light (2007)
  • I came up like everyone, they taught us all the same
    I said what they told me to say, and then from that they grade
    Give up repeating the facts, but that could be arranged
    Here I am, I'll take my chance
    Now play the record straight

    Now give it up
    Oh oh oh
    Give it up
    Oh oh oh

    Talking points from talking heads with automotive smiles
    There's no higher ground to stand than bottom of the pile
    Give up acting unaware, you can't ignore the crime
    The enemy is you as well, the enemy is I

    Give it up
    Oh oh oh
    Give it up
    Oh oh oh
    Give it up
    Oh oh oh
    Give it up
    Oh oh oh

    Not in my name, you don't speak for me
    I am my voice, and I want to scream
    You want my air, you want my life
    I act as one, but I'm not alone

    Oh oh oh
    Give it up
    Oh oh oh
    Give it up
    Oh oh oh
    Give it up
    Oh oh oh
    Give it up
    Oh oh oh
    Give it up
    Oh oh oh Writer/s: JAMES CHRISTOPHER ADKINS, RICHARD E BURCH, THOMAS DARRELL LINTON, ZACHARY MICHEL LIND
