Singled Out: Havok's Give Me Liberty... Or Give Me Death

Today Havok frontman David Sanchez tells us about the song "Give Me Liberty... Or Give Me Death" from their brand new album "Unnatural Selection". Here is the story:

This little ditty has some fun lyrics about the ways of the world. Anyone with a thinking brain in their head has very good reason to be angry at the state of our union right now! The lyrics to "Give Me Liberty… Or Give Me Death" are heartfelt and written in a way that I think everyone can get behind. Let's be honest, our government is too big, our debts too high, our policy makers corrupted, and as the song says, "Democracy is dead." It's sad, but true. People need to WAKE UP to the severity of the situation. It's in our power as the citizens of this nation to make a difference, but that will never happen until the majority is awake and passionate about improving our situation. The U.S. government's irresponsibility and abuse of power has never been so painfully blatant and undermining. Our national debt is soaring to new highs while our dwindling rights are being disregarded in the name of "national security." How stupid do they think we are?

It seems to me that if things keep going the way they are, eventually something will snap and we may see another American revolution or civil war in our lifetime. It's not unthinkable: World War II only happened 70 years ago. I do not lose sleep over such thoughts, but it's definitely something worth mentioning.

Don't believe everything you see or read in the media… The mass media is in the business of creating news and shutting off minds. (Less than a couple dozen corporations own all the newspapers, television networks, magazines, and radio stations in the world: Just stew over that for a moment.) The world needs more freethinkers. We must be more incredulous and less ready to just accept the B.S. we are force-fed.

The song ends with a quote from Thomas Jefferson and I think it's appropriate to end this bit with another T.J. quote: "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be." - Thomas Jefferson

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and check out the video here and learn more about the album right here!
