Enjoy The Ride

The Knights Code

A Knight is sworn to valor
His heart knows only virtue
His blade defends the helpless
His might upholds the weak
His words speak only truth
His wroth undoes the wicked 

I don't know if the C2 censors will allow this to stay but I'll give it a shot.  There is a tamer version....

Corporate Takes

Shadows of war have darkened the land
  Rivers of blood wash upon distant sand
That man in your gunsite thinks his cause is true
  He has blood and he has kin, he's inspired like you

    Are we defending our homes and protecting our land?
    Or just making money by man killing man
    Corporate takes but they don't give a damn

Financial alchemists make gold out of blood
  We've dried up the waters but let loose a flood
Tax breaks and subsidies the corporate command
 They take and they take but they don't give a damn

We work in the fields, while they work on their tan
  The people are enslaved to the corporate demand
The elite want it all,  and they don't give a damn
  If they get it through blood of the children of man
     They'll continue to do it cuz they know that they can
      Till they own the body of every woman and man
      Corporate takes but they don't give a damn

They put us in chains if we dare make a stand
    But we'd still live in bondage if we yield to their plan
They'll treat you like livestock if you consent to the brand
    Corporate takes and they don't give a damn

They give a frack but they don't give a fuck
  If you voted for "change" then you're shit out of luck
Citizens United gave us a clue
  It's all about money, it's not about you

Radiation checked on young childrens shoes
  Zealots condem the god that you choose
Modified crops are mammon inspired
  They'll give you a pill if you're sick and tired

Talking points based on no shred of fact
  Blaming the poor for all that we lack
Tear gas and bullets are the answer to all
  If we don't stand together then together we'll fall

Economies built making weapons of war
  Politicians elected as corporate whores
Fox preaching balance is a figure of speech
 The American dream is out of your reach

  Kids can't find a job but we'll find them a gun
  And send them to battle with... we'll find someone
  Corporate takes but they don't give a damn
  Corporate takes and they don't give a damn
  Corporate takes but they don't give a damn
