These songs are meant to be listened to in order. They are a statement of what it means to be free and live in a free world. We all look around and know that something is not right in this world. The revolution we want is peaceful at almost all costs. If we can’t do it peacefully then we must do it for the children. The songs teach 1. Right and wrong mean something (God Fearing Man) 2. Family (keeper of the songs) 3. The People Standing Up (Rosa Parks) 4. If the people have exhausted all peaceful options (the 2nd Amendment) 5. Good will win, like it always does (Last ones to go).
As Ghandi said, “Remember that all through history, there have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall. Always.”
If not… Then we will be the last ones to go!
