Everyman lives in his own world
Everyman makes his own way
He is responsible for what he does
He is accountable for what he may say

A real man is not kowtowed
By fear of regret or threat
But will speak factually and accurately
Act like he has a set

Even in the face of false peer pressure
The kind that would have one kneel
Like it's some kind of reasonable precaution
That by process of appeasement one can appeal

To the better nature
Of those who twist and wriggle and connive
Far better it be to fight for right and freedom
Than to surrender to slavery to survive

Far better it be to die
Than it is to not live free
For all the precious
Treasures and Pleasures

All are naught
Without courage and capability
