As Long As I'm Safe Lyrics

As Long As I'm Safe by Behind Enemy Lines  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



As Long As I'm Safe Once again america has chosen to keep it's shut tight
Content in our national ignorance as long as all danger is kept out of sight
We don’t want to hear the reasons why this happened. We only want revenge
We only want to feel safe again and we’re all willing to pretend
That if we hunt down those responsible then the danger will disappear
And we won’t have to lock ourselves inside our homes, cowering in fear
But we must ready our nation’s defenses against more possible attacks
Our government is going to need our help to fight the terrorists whenever they come back
As long as I’m safe
I’ll give my government the power to decide what rights of mine to throw away
As long as I’m safe
I’ll support legislation giving those who already have too much power
Just a little more
I’ll trade away my rights for my mind to be at peace
I’ll trade away my rights for a peaceful night of sleep
I’ll trade away my rights for the illusion of safety
I’ll trade away my rights for a false sense of security
As long as I’m safe
They can spy on me twenty-four hours a day,
Erect video surveillance all over our communities
As long as I’m safe
I’ll succumb to phone tapping, unwarranted searches
And mandatory fingerprinting
I’ll trade away my rights to help our leaders get revenge
I’ll trade away my rights to make sure this will never happen again
I’ll trade away my rights for the illusion of safety
I’ll trade away my rights for a false sense of security
The bill of rights is null and void
An army of cops has been deployed
Every citizen is now a defendant
Illegal seizure of the fourth amendment
As long as I’m safe
I’ll support, without evidence, the bombing of any
Country our leaders deem a threat
As long as I’m safe
I’ll ignore the suffering in the rest of the world
That our government is causing
I’ll trade away my rights to make sure these terrorists are stopped
I’ll trade away my rights to help put America back on top
I’ll trade away my rights for the illusion of safety
I’ll trade away my rights for a false sense of security
As long as I’m safe then it’s all been worth it
