They're Comin' After You

They're comin' after you
They've got their petitions
They're comin' after you
They state their position
That you're deviant, you're dangerous
Clearly you're not one of us
Be you lesbian or gay
They'll take your human rights away
They're comin' after you
I'm takin' an interest
And I'm takin' a stand

They came for the commies, they came for the gays
They came for the blacks and we turned away
They came for the artists, unionists, Jews
Soon they'll be coming for me -
I've got to stand up for you!

They're comin' after you
They put their names on the line
Ah, the evil that some do
Sad sign of the times
When the world's out of control
Got to blame some other soul
Point a finger, call it sin
It happens now - it happened then
They're comin' after you
I'm takin' an interest
And I'm takin' a stand
