He's standing in the shadows with a switchblade knife, She's walking to her car in the dark of night. In the concrete jungle, an animal stalks his prey. She don't scream and she don't run, He picked a victim that owns a gun. And tonight he'll learn that crime, it just don't pay.
'Cause we've all got the right to survive, And the tools to keep us alive. But some fool is always trying to take ‘em away.
The price of freedom ain't ever been cheap, It's been passed down to us to keep. We better be ready to do whatever it takes.
Too many politicians have their votes for sale, They're letting this country go to hell. And I'm tired of them messing with my right to survive.
I like to turn the other cheek every time I can, But I know there's evil in the heart of man. And the law ain't around when the devil comes to call.
When it's 1am and your window breaks, The home, the family, and your life is at stake. Where are you gonna turn when your back's against the wall?
Well, we've all got the right to survive, And the tools to keep us alive. But some fool is always trying to take ‘em away.
We'd better wake up, better open our eyes, ‘Cause 911 took us by surprise. And if we don’t watch out it’ll damn sure happen again.
You cowardly killers better hear us clear, Crawl back in your holes and live in fear. And don't come messing with our right to survive.
Now I know God's gonna have his judgment day, But I'm a card-totin’ member of the NRA. And I'm just protecting my right to survive.
Freedom, freedom, freedom, To survive. Freedom, freedom, freedom.
