Crushed By The System – Troy Glover

We fought the fight for freedom
Stood strong to support equal rights
generously given for next generations
all lost when we let go the light.

Further our fathers have faded
So sons now stand in quicksand
growing in the gutter of gall
losing their lives to the land.

Wise women our wives and daughters
Sown with the spirit of strength
gilded with goodness and greatness
lending love in unmeasurable lengths.

Foreordain, foreseen, foreshadowed
Soaring songs to the stars that listen
guardians of the Gangling Ganders
you will not be crushed by the system.
