BandMetalRock

Question Authority is an original Hard Rock and Metal band from Boise, Idaho. The band was formed in 1991, and has since survived the peaks, valleys, and changes within the industry by continuing to develop and deliver an original sound all their own.

Biography

Question Authority's influences stem from Heavy Metal greats such as Metallica and Black Sabbath, with additional influences also coming from groups such as AC/DC, Van Halen, Rush, and Tool.

Within the band are three brothers who have played together for the majority of their lives. They have developed a style that is not only complimented, but rather completed with the talent and style that the additional two members put into the band.

Question Authority has consistently supported a message of respecting and understanding the rights, priveledges, and duties that come with being an American. The band promotes a message that reminds others they do have the right to Question certain aspects and/or institutions within their lives, however the band feels strongly that the voice of the people is heard loudest through the process of voting.

DISCLAIMER: Question Authority does not promote nor support Terrorism, Anarchy, anti-government militias, Death conspiricies, or any other violent forms of Protest. We support the Supreme Law of the Land - The U.S. Constitution - and all of its contents within.

Lyrics

Always Ask Why

Written By: Question Authority

I yearn to have answers as my duties dictate.
A Freedom for others is why we debate.
To simply grant wishes to those who seek goods
Is to live without wisdom – as none of us should.

It may start from my voice – to them or to you.
Seeking the answers as so many do.
My voice will grow bigger – My question, a message.
This message is simple – This message to Question.
______________________

Still the question grows bigger as we all must Ask Why.
It’s our duty for liberty which none can deny.
Stand up as United – as a People of wise.
Find truth and find justice while deciphering lies.

Some Questions are asked and the answers, not known.
It’s to answer all Questions why this message is shown.
Ask of your leaders if their guidance is right.
Tell them We The People strengthen their might.

Always Ask Why of our leaders’ intent.
Even, if to people, it’s quite evident
Each one has a duty to keep freedom alive
We The People have a duty to Ask Why

Solo

Ask them in fair and legitimate ways.
Allow them to answer by which means they may.
State the questions in clear, understandable terms.
So that everyone sees that they don’t miss a word.

Listen so well to the nature of their reason.
Ensure that their actions are not hidden treason.
Remember to ask and to Question their moves.
Protection of Freedom is what we must do.

Always Ask Why of our leaders’ intent.
Even, if to people, it’s quite evident
Each one has a duty to keep freedom alive
We The People have a duty to Ask Why

End Of All

Written By: Question Authority

It’s time to find your place in the maze
It’s not where you’re going or where you’ve been
It’s all inside your heart, you say
It’s coming down to this final day

Yeah....

Just sit back and let yourself go
And think of the heavy load you tow
Forget all the things you have left behind
It’s coming down to this final time

Yeah....

Now that you’ve found your place in my maze
It’s not where you’re going or where you’ve been
It’s all inside your heart, you say
And now it’s here, this final day

Yeah....

Alien Song

Written By: Question Authority

From where I see, I can see forever
From what I see, It won’t be long
From what I know, I have lived a lifetime
From what I feel, we have not long to go

I can’t stay this way
Don’t want to be here
Don’t want to live like this
I can’t live this way
I don’t want to be here.
I don’t want to live like this
I don’t want to be me
So, just set me free

I’ve things to share - Please let me share them
I’ve things to give - Please let me give them
I’ve come to know - I’ve come to love you
Would you take me in? Or would you leave me high?

I can’t live this way
Don’t want to be here
Don’t want to live like this
I can’t stay this way
I don’t want to be here.
I don’t want to live like this
I don’t want to be me
So, just set me free

I’ve come to know that I let you go
I’ve come to be… thought I’d let you know.
Can you take you with me to the other side
Would you take me in or would you let me die.

From where I see, I can see forever
From what I see, It won’t be long
From what I know, I have lived a lifetime
From what I feel……

I can’t live this way
Don’t want to be here
Don’t want to live like this
I can’t stay this way
I don’t want to be here.
I don’t want to live like this
I don’t want to be me
So, just set me free

Free…. Free…. Free….
