This Clark Bell song traces the need to remember that freedom is not cheap and must be paid for by vigilance and energy. People are often driven to seize power from those who are complacent, lethargic and just not paying attention. Good government requires educated and dedicated citizens to maintain high standards of integrity. Otherwise, those who would exploit the weak seize the upper hand and dominate the legislative processes. The song is in triple meter and appears on the Mixed Meters for Minors album.
