Don't Tread On Me


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Again, I know I just posted another song a few days ago, but here's another quickie I wanted to get out there.

It's another politically motivated song, and yeah, I guess you could say there's a little bit of anger behind it. But, that's a good thing because I got to use my rock 'n' roll voice on the vocals. Lots of crunch guitars and driving bass and drums.

Hope you enjoy and...

PLAY IT LOUD!!!!

Don’t Tread on Me
©2010 Joseph Gurner

Don’t tread on me with your anger and fear
as you show your contempt for your fellow man

Don’t tread on me with god and country
like you’re the only one who gives a damn

We’ve got to believe we can come together
even as others try to tear us apart
We’ve got to respect one another
and tell all the shouters and the haters...

Don’t tread on me


Don’t tread on me with your guns and wars
Don’t kill in my name and say it’s god’s plan

Don’t tread on me with corruption and greed
Your money won’t mean nothing in the promised land

We’ve got to believe we can come together
even as others try to tear us apart
We’ve got to stand shoulder to shoulder
and shout above the noise...

Don’t tread on me


Don’t tread on me with your fire and brimstone
I don’t care how much you pray

Don’t tread on me with your morality
We’re free to live however we choose

We’ve got to believe we can come together
even as others try to tear us apart
We’ve got to raise our voices as one
and make them hear our song

Don’t tread on me

Good One!
Good one Mr. Gurner! The older I get the more I realize how hopeless it is to have people actually carry on a conversation about issues - political or otherwise. Very few people read anymore and so all they know is what the talking heads tell them on tv and radio. There are huge lies and exaggerations on both sides or should I say all sides. The very framework of the discussion is all wrong. It is about republicans and conservatives on one side and liberals and democrats on the other. It actually should be about corruption and greed which is abundant everywhere on both sides. How is Obama really that different from Bush? Look who he put in his cabinet. Why won't he even support an audit of the Federal Reserve? The whole thing is a cruel joke and it is on everyone who is not a multi-millionaire. On the song I think your voice sounds terriffic! Really conveys your anger. Musical framework does too. Nice!

BIG SOUND JOE!
HUUUUGE. Politics on a world scale is just getting more and more depressing, and I've reached the point where it distresses me so much I can't write about it much anymore without getting really down and angry.
It's nice to hear someone else in the same boat who can say what I feel so easily. A great protest song.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil
