I Will Not Obey

Utah Phillips

The new ruling party is holding the aces
The rest of the cards are all missing faces
I'm sorry I can't know you today
What can one say?
I will not obey

Give us your sons and give us your daughters
No one is safe or immune from the slaughter
How indifference makes them rage
What can one say?
I will not obey

National guard or freedom fighters
All houses belong to cigarette lighters
But who hides in the smoke?
What can one say?
I will not obey

Better perhaps to perish outside
Of the bunkers where our generals hide
I turn away and spit
What can one say?
I will not obey

Give us the minds of your children to learn
The substance of books we have not yet burned
But can they read the sky for rain?
What can one say?
I will not obey
