( Tax protest song lyrics / anti-tax movement )
DEATH OR TAXES
( Ed & Elaine Brown )
Copyright © 2007 - MickTerry.com
You've got OK; you've got Waco;
you've got Ruby Ridge,
disasters laying claims above the law.
Now, there's Plainfield in New Hampshire adding to that list,
and a growing fam'ly set against government sprawl.
It's come to
DEATH OR TAXES: one's preferred to the other.
DEATH OR TAXES, it's here you make your stand.
DEATH OR TAXES, your rantings may be smothered,
but will you become more martyred ones
in this "freedom land"?
You've got rhetoric; you've got postures;
you've got desp'rate ones
defending your convictions and beliefs.
Tax protesters and anarchists toting lots of guns,
all gathered for this show-down, no- retreat.
Walking the dog, a house guest spots a convoy,
and confronts the armored lawmen closing in.
This dialogue may have stopped their plans to destroy,
may have saved the lives of those besieged within.
You've got solar, you've got ammo;
you've got stockpiled food,
enough to keep the lawmen all at bay.
'til they tire of all this waiting, shut you down for good.
And who will be the big winner on that darkened day?
