Revolution


So tell me family now what do you think ?
Watch it all go down the great big sink
Watch how the scum it rises to the top
Don't you wonder when it's all gonna stop ?
Sometimes I wonder how we do sleep, serving the dodgy companies we keep
All kicking and scrounging for the very first place - dictionary definition of a rat race
Pay off those losers we elect to lead, stealing from the mouths that we're meant to feed
Enslaving the very clothes upon my back, I feel the sting but I hear no crack, no crack, I'm saying

Running through the fire,
Running through the flame,
Running through the hatred,
Pushing though the blame
Running through the hopelessness and shame
Revolution already underway

Big heavy pirates man digging those holes, messing with something that they can't control
Trespassing lands where they don't belong, all I hear is screaming where there once were songs
I got my brothers there fighting those wars, fighting over scraps ans scraping their sores
Under a blanket of a fire and pride that can't keep us warm for the cold inside, inside, I'm saying

Running through the fire,
Running through the flame,
Running through the hatred,
Pushing though the blame
Running through the hopelessness and shame

Revolution already underway

So tell me when you think we're gonna rise ?
Wake from this slumber wipe the tears from our eyes ?
Yes from this nightmare yes I must now wake, open my fist my destiny I take !
Good people sick and tired of being pushed around, we call them kings but I see no crown
Tell me when you think we'll just stand up ?
Say enough is enough is enough, enough, I'm saying

Running through the fire,
Running through the flame,
Running through the hatred,
Pushing though the blame
Running through the hopelessness and shame
Revolution already underway

Take back your feet
Take back your hands
Take back your words
Take back your lands
Take back your heart
Take back your pride
Don't got to run, Don't got to hide
Revolution !
