about

This song was written in the wake of the atrocious 2015 general election, and is about how complaining about politicians on the Internet will not help to fix this broken country. If you want change, you need to get off your arse and start a fucking riot.

lyrics

They lie to you again and again,
Twisting their words like a knife in your back as you smile,
And then they do it some more.
Chronicle unquestioned; sold to us all.

Break this stranglehold on our society,
Tune out the system, think for yourself.
Web of lies you believe will keep you pacified;
As long as you think you are free you will never revolt.

Stand up and fight, stand up and fight, REVOLT!

Your anger will free you but first you must unleash your rage.

(And I know there's some of you out there thinking 'look man, we can't change the system, life just deal you a hand, you gotta play it.' Well fuck you. We can change the system, we WILL change the system, and if you're not with us then you're in our fucking way.)

You can't change the world with a Facebook status
ORGANISE! ORGANISE!
We're taking our lives back from the ones that betrayed us
OCCUPY! OCCUPY!
It's never gonna happen till we make the decision to
MOBILISE! MOBILISE!
We're all victims of reciprocal inhibition,
GLOBALISE! GLOBALISED RESISTANCE!

FIVE FINGERS FOLD TO A FIST!
LIGHT UP THE MOLOTOVS AND RESIST!
LIFT UP YOUR VOICE!

You want the world to stand up and listen?
You need to raise your voice to a scream,
One voice, then two, then eight and then millions,
UNITED RESISTANCE!
Take back the streets of your town in live protest,
The fire inside will show you the way:
Freedom through anger turn on oppression
NOW IS OUR TIME!

RESIST! Light it up! Light it up! Stoke the fire!

LET IT BURN!
