Butch walker - Paid to get excited

and the sky is falling upwards
on a summer desert night
while kids in school are forced to sing
the battle hymns just right
extras paid to get excited
on the tv screen
so doped up on diversions
that they dont know what it means

to be free to hate the ones you hate
free to love the ones you love
free to like the land you live on
not the one who leads
all im sayin, dig the grave you lay in
after all, you make the call
hang up before its too late

make sure to give your full attention
smile the best you can
watch this hand give peace sign
while the other chokes a man
cuz he wants to love another man
theyll tell you that its bad
some book that set the moral codes
is glamourized in ads


So to be free to hate the ones you hate
free to love the ones you love
free to like the land you live on
not the one who leads
all im sayin, dig the grave you lay in
after all, you make the call
hang up before its too late

and the backflipping, spike-haired preachers
preaching through their headset mics
saying god is the new elvis and
he's gonna rock tonight
so just sip on your little energy drink
although it tastes like shit
cuz a pretty t.v. couple
says they cant live without it

be free to hate the ones you hate
free to love the ones you love
free to like the land you live on
not the one who leads
all I'm sayin, dig the grave you lay in
after all, you make the call
hang up before its too late

be free to hate the ones you hate
free to love the ones you love
free to like the land you live on
not the one who leads
all I'm sayin, dig the grave you lay in
after all, you make the call
hang up before its too late
