Don't Tread On Me!


United we Stand, Divided we Fall!
We fought to defend this Land!
And We will obey it's fighting Call!
For we Live in America, A land of the Brave,
But even those in Iron Shackles will be made free!
And then We'll say "Don't Tread on Me! "

Freedom comes at a price of blood,
So why let People into our country like an invasive flood?
We say invade their land, Oh Mexico, Please stay south of the Rio Grande!
We let idiots into office, When we should be Letting in our Heroes of war!
But Then again saying that would offend each other, and make our country's backbone sore!
For we live in America, A land of the "Free",
And we'll all say "Don't Tread on Me! "

United we Stand, Divided we Fall!
We fought to defend this Land!
And We will obey it's fighting Call!
For we Live in America, A land of the Brave,
But even those in Iron Shackles will be made free!
And then We'll say "Don't Tread on Me! "

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
