Open your eyes to see the hands in your pockets The state steals everything that it has Organized criminals hiding behind a fraudulent "social contract" You own your body You own your actions You own the fruits of your own labor No act can be virtuous unless it's been freely chosen Relationships between you and the government are involuntary You have no choice to opt out of the system Tax laws are compulsory Pay or be incarcerated Are you a slave? Working day by day Unable to collect your pay Your wage is theirs and you take what's left They know taxation is theft If it's wrong for people to steal, that can't change when they call themselves government Government will always steal, because they cannot create wealth Voluntary exchange is the only path to prosperity Monopoly on the use of force is what they claim to impose tax slavery Privatization is the route we must take to wash the state away Unlearn all of the propaganda Defend the principles of liberty It's not compassion when you're forced to pay the cost Taxation is theft There can be no virtue without a free choice Taxation is theft
