Can You Imagine...

... If we realized the collective hive mind is what works
If the pions walked out and refused to work
Can you imagine all the nurses just refusing to go
Sighing back at the smoke as they burn their oaths

If no one manned the beds that demand the presence of hands
Then the billionaires that starve them would be able to understand
How can ones discontent fall upon those of the land
It stirs within their house, yet it is up to you to take a stand

And all of your kin

But who wants to be the leader against the man
Who will follow when all are concerned about the meal they've planned
We avoid starvation by complying with what is unjust
Ignoring the small amounts taken until slavery is a must

But the long run is a game that most are too afraid to play
It is this fear upon which the authoritarian preys

Can you imagine if we realized that together we'd head this war?
Present a storm these earth gods couldn't possibly ignore.
