(Paul Hampton, Sage Allen)

I got plan; yeah, a plot's what I got
To help this country rise again
All a' the haves
Join the have-nots
And strip our fears off while we can

[Chorus; C.W. only]
We've gotta kidnap America
Hold it for ransom
Put a price on our own head
And we won't give back America
'Til ev'ry one of us
Start payin' up, stop playin' dead

Hold up your head
You got it up?
Doomsday's been comin' for a hundred years
But it's not here yet
An' it ain't a-gonna come
Unless we drown in our own tears

[Chorus; the other singers]
We've gotta kidnap America
Hold it for ransom
Put a price on our own head
And we won't give back America
'Til ev'ry one of us
Start payin' up, stop playin' dead

Stand up, Americans!
We are the people!
And the shirt's bein' stripped right off of our backs
We've let it happen
And we've gotta stop it
Before the spirit of sweet Liberty cracks

You guys in office!
You better listen!
We're sick an' tired of gettin' took
This ain't no crap game!
This is our future!
So run this country by the book

Pay up with courage!
Don't die for terror
We got the guts; we're the home of the brave
Well the home may be crumblin'
But not the foundation
It's still as strong as the day it was laid

[Chorus; the other singers]
We've gotta kidnap America
Hold it for ransom
Put a price on our own head
And we won't give back America
'Til ev'ry one of us
Start payin' up, stop playin' dead

I wanna thank ya
For your time
