Have We Forgotten





Have we forgotten that we’re a rebellious people
Cashing checks under a drifter’s pseudonym
But together, we race across time, surviving
Embracing the unity of singing outlawed hymns
Lately, crying about a falsified history
Disillusioned, disappointed, disingenuous
I have no faith in movements and isms
They’re tinged with the superfluous
I believe in honor & service to the people
Treat each as an individual, never a group
Freedom & liberty distilled down to purest forms
Or else, we’ll see this hatred played out in an endless loop


Do You Remember When Promises Meant Something



Do you remember when promises meant something
The honor required of citizens in society’s threads
The oaths that never had to be sworn to back then
Gentlemen knew their obligations without lingering dread

I Won’t Stand For A Cause I Don’t Believe In


I won’t stand for a cause I don’t believe in
So you’ll know the truth when I speak
There’ll be no frivolous grandstanding
Merely honor you consider to be antique
Not going to make any false proclamations
I’m living a just life with pure intentions
Steadfast & unwavering in my methods
Sending forth clarity to avoid misapprehension


Somber Remembrances


Somber remembrances
The survivors offering a toast
Can’t live without a purpose
Not able to simply coast
There’s a mission left at home
Maybe a dream can never be
But the fight continues on
More than rhetoric for us to be free


Confidence To Hang In The Shadows


Confidence to hang in the shadows
Not trying to soak up the limelight
Society just wants to destroy its heroes
Refuse to honor them with a fight
You can’t win when they distort the facts
All is fair in love & imaginary wars
I’ll take my dreams & integrity
To live a life worth resisting for




“My honor is dearer to me than my life.”

– Cervantes: Don Quixote, 1604
