hands on stance lyrics – ignite

if you care, love something
and see it threatened
you’ll get angry and fight
a scorched earth policy

nature’s not valued by our society
sometimes you fight and you win
most of the time
it’s a loss up against big monies

a murderous policy
war on predators on public property
destroy what humans have made
like a bulldozer

you’re called a vandal or a criminal
but clear cut old growth trees
you’re called a logger
a miner, a businessman

stand up and fight, don’t give in
stagnant hands can’t accomplish anything
i value life over property
the greedy hands stained in blood money

sometimes you fight and you win
stand your ground don’t you give in
sometimes you fight and you win
stand up for what you believe

the circus came to town bringing misery
white trash families
bring the kids gawk at inhumane tragedies

beat down lions, de-toothed black bears
elephants on the verge of insanity
rodeo hillbillies, traveling jails
and side show circus freaks

sometimes you fight and you win
stand your ground don’t you give in
sometimes you fight and you win
stand up for what you believe

a hands on stance for what you believe
stand your ground firm because

sometimes you fight and you win
stand your ground don’t you give in
sometimes you fight and you win
stand up for what you believe
