Flowing guitar blues-rock number. Nice melodic guitar harmonies (if I do say so myself) at about 2:20 in. Last in the protest series (see full song info/lyrics).

Lyrics
No Right to Lie - (c) 2013 Ken J Hill ----------------------------- Where to go - I do not know but I'll just keep on ridin' It's one fine day - to get away there is no point in hidin' Can't tell a lie - I want to fly away from all this madness From just a few - that we all knew who keep on spreading sadness ----------------------------- (V1) ----------------------------- Truth in advertising, we've always held it dear From things to buy to politics, the facts were always clear But now the ads are filled with lies, and issues we must fear If this keeps up I can't help feel, the end just might be near ----------------------------- Through and through - direct to you same old tune they're singing They want it all - that is their call but what is it they're bringing It's up to us - to make a fuss to stop all the corruption Just vote your soul - & not their goal and end all their disruption ----------------------------- (V2) ----------------------------- It's time we stand up proudly, and denounce their hypocrisy loudly There are no facts in what they say, they just must have their way Through their lies you will find, the truth will give you piece of mind It's better late than not at all, so long as we prevent the fall ----------------------------- So don't complain - or act so vain when it comes to their election They wouldn't be there-if all would care to vote for their rejection And once we do - It's up to you to keep all those wolves at bay For if we snooze - we'll surely loose all that we've gained today ----------------------------- (V3) ----------------------------- You can have your own opinions, but not make up your facts Insist to have your subsidies, but refuse to pay the tax Can't raise your workers wages, but your bonuses compound Then ride your golden parachute as the business hits the ground ------------------------------ (V4) ----------------------------- You manipulate our given rights, to get a bigger share Rig the game and cheat your way, you never will play fair If that's the only way to win then I don't want to play For honor and integrity is in short supply today ----------------------------- Where to go - I do not know but I'll just keep on ridin' It's one fine day - to get away there is no point in hidin' Can't tell a lie - I want to fly away from all this madness From just a few - that we all knew who keep on spreading sadness -----------------------------
