Oh We’re Not Gonna Take It!

Dragons

Evil King Badinoff has issued an edict saying that all dragons must be “properly licensed”, must buy their sulfur supplements from 1 of 3 officially sanctioned stores, must pay a nuisance tax, and must not be seen on public streets between the hours of 9 PM and 9 AM. Dragons who break the rules will be hunted down and they and their families will have their heads mounted on King Badinoff’s throne room walls.

OH WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT
NO, WE AIN’T GONNA TAKE IT
OH WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE

WE’VE GOT THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE AND
THERE AIN’T NO WAY WE’LL LOSE IT
THIS IS OUR LIFE, THIS IS OUR SONG
WE’LL FIGHT THE POWERS THAT BE JUST
DON’T PICK OUR DESTINY ‘CAUSE
YOU DON’T KNOW US, YOU DON’T BELONG

OH WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT
NO, WE AIN’T GONNA TAKE IT
OH WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE

OH YOU’RE SO CONDESCENDING
YOUR GALL IS NEVER ENDING
WE DON’T WANT NOTHIN’, NOT A THING FROM YOU
YOUR LIFE IS TRITE AND JADED
BORING AND CONFISCATED
IF THAT’S YOUR BEST, YOUR BEST WON’T DO

The Council of Dragons from the Bundok decided their protest song against Evil King Badinoff, “We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore”. They’ve had enough. They were not really the bad dragons; in fact, they were doing their share in helping the community. For instance, GINTO is the champion against evil and foul play. He helps the people when they were being robbed in the streets or when some anomalies were done to them. They can always rely on him. PILAK heals the injured, helps the meek and the lowly. As for KOBRE, he’s an incorrigible prankster, he tells jokes and riddles and the people love him. TANSO loves talking to people. He spends hours and hours entertaining them with some anecdotes and stories and if people have time to debate on some issues, he’d be happy to be on the other side of the debate. The leader of the Dragons, TANSONG PULA has a strong sense of justice and doesn’t tolerate cruelty. They don’t really know what they’ve done to deserve this bad treatment from the evil King.

Wish I Was Home For Christmas

Wish I was home for Christmas
The squad is down to bareness
Wish I was there playing my drums
Having fun with family and chums
Eating minced pies and singing carols
Not here fighting battles after battles
Wish I had the power to make people think
Reflect before we’re dead in a blink
That killing one another was not the answer
I insist that my voice be heard, and the others
Air out some differences then find a solution
Let’s not be blind to one another’s needs
In an ideal world, we’re threading and spinning
Until there’s peace and hope for everybody
