A desperate situation
Forced to retaliation
The task ahead a burden
Men will suffer, that's for certain

We'll charge into the fire
The cause, we must inspire
We raise our fists to tyranny
A high price, freedom is not free

The odds are stacked against us
But with our resolve relentless
And arrogance their weakness
Our cause is just, we won't be beaten

Upon this declaration
Will come a brand new nation
Where men are seen as equal
Governed by and for the people

So we make our stand and pray
On this Declaration Day
For independence I will fight
With liberty I will defy

So we make our stand and pray
On this Declaration Day
Give me liberty or give me death
I'll fight 'til my last breath

With virtue as our beacon
Our cause is charged as treason
Battle worn and starving
Through the hell of war we'll keep marching

The birth of our new nation
An act of desperation
We'll force King George down to his knees
Capitulation

And so we make our stand and pray
On this Declaration Day
For independence I will fight
With liberty I will defy

So we make our stand and pray
On this Declaration Day
Give me liberty or give me death
I'll fight 'til my last breath
