Staple Album: Of Truth and Reconciliation Track: Do Or Die
Do Or Die Lyrics
The elitist mob cometh with fury in their speech. With bursting wallets flashing, they've assumed the right to teach. There's a fire in the sky and the stake is immersed in flames - I salute the man ignited for giving up all his change.
Call the ambulance! They've threatened our lives with death! (Show me your faith) Let's stain their sharpened knives with voices raised and heads held high - WE WILL NOT CHANGE TONIGHT
The serpent has beseeched me again...The fruit is ripe for the feast. But your fork-tongued gluttony has convinced me not to eat. Compromise is what you want and it's everything we won't give - So we answer, "Don't insult us! If you tell us that it's do or die, we choose death!"
I promise you I'll never change. I'd die before I'd ever change for you. IT'S DO OR DIE TIME
The truth of life can't be missed: I've felt it in His wrists. Let's stain their sharpened knives with voices raised and heads held high WE WILL NOT CHANGE - I'D DIE BEFORE I'D EVER CHANGE- TONIGHT
Lyrics by Darin Keim, Music by Staple
"Our culture often chooses to believe whatever the wealthy or powerful tell us to believe. Why is this? They have no more insight into reality than anyone else. In fact, most have less. I wrote this thinking of Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the people who turn their noses up at particular faith choices. Sadly, their influence is often enough to convince many that they shouldn't be following those beliefs either. Stand up for what you believe in such a way that you would be willing to die for those convictions." - Darin Keim (Staple)
