Never Again

Redoubt Volcano Eruption April 21, 1990

Won’t be fooled by your ruse again

Will never again lose this game

Never again – your puppet on strings

Tear them ou, fly away on eagles wings

Turn heel and run – just run like hell

Like hell is on your heels and your wounds won’t heal

Block your ears and drown out the noise

Hit back, and silence the critics voice

Never again! Make your war face!

Slam your decision into place

Never ever again will we fall

Scream it out and pick up your sword

Run through those strawmen

Feel their blood fall onto your shaking hands

Tear down the walls they build to hold you in

Let them hate – let them call it sin

Let them hate the fact you’re free

Not bound up the way they wanted you to be

When they come and challenge you

Face them and let the fire burn inside you

Fall on your knees – they think you’re going to plea

But clench those fists and let the fire go free

Slam them into the ground

And shake the earth about

Never again! Hark, the eagle screams

Beware the crouching tiger’s eye doth gleam

Never again! Someone let the raging dragon out

Tear down the imposing redoubts

Story behind the poem:

Too often we get mad and don’t actually do anything about it. It’s time to get mad, so mad, that we swear that never again will we be fooled!
