ON THE RUN AGAIN

[ As if from the point of view of former NSA IT Edward Snowden ]
Tasteless Hong Kong noodles feed this faceless Yankee-doodle,
talking with The Guardian, exposing dang'rous truths.
The NSA is bristling. I'm squealing 'bout their list'ning
to phone calls & The Internet of people such as you.
Am I a whistle-blowing hero or terror-loving zero?
Watchdog of our freedoms or traitor to our land?
I could see abuses beyond intended uses.
I had to follow conscience & make a solid stand.
ON THE RUN AGAIN.
Don't know who to turn to. Don't know who to trust.
ON THE RUN AGAIN. ON THE RUN AGAIN.
NSA paid me six figures. That won't make my guts feel better.
I can't allow our government to destroy our liberties.
It's all being done in secret. Hush- hush they'd prefer to keep it.
First on their agenda is the silencing of me.
Hunted, wanted, none-the-less undaunted.
Prob'ly will be haunted by this
for the rest of my life,
the rest of my life.
My greatest fear's that nothing will change & folks keep sluffing
on through their lives, full- knowing what's going on.
I'll keep on disappearing, but if someday you're hearing
I've "accident'ly" bought it, you'll know that something's wrong.
