Treasure Island

Take a Stand


What's so hard about saying NO
Spit it out man, let it go
Afraid of hurting friend or foe
Take a stand man, just say NO

Sure it's easier to say YES
Avoid all conflict, just digress
Smile, pretend it's for the best
You want it easy, just say YES

What's so bad about saying NO
Drop the guilt trip, let it go
Right or wrong who needs to know
Take a stand man, just say NO

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
