Hiding Behind Lies and Disguise

You can't hide your lying eyes,
As well as your face in disguise,
You can't wear a sheep's clothing,
And be a werewolf back-biting,

Beyond the hill there's a child dreaming,
For freedom hoping and for help screaming,
Who'll carry on my legacy,
And challenge your autocracy,

You can't rule if you know not how,
And force a cow like a cat to meow,
You can't put a square peg in a round hole,
Just as you can't kill a spirit with a goal,

Beyond the hill there's an old man dying,
Dying to go to a home you're denying,
Just as all roads lead to Rome,
So too all roads lead to home,

And to our home sweet home we shall go,
Where in freedom our children can grow,
Where we can enjoy the fruits of our labor,
And bury your lies and your bloody sabre,
