lyrics

and for every street named louise michel like they meant it / for every corner that doesn’t have a cop standing tonight to protect and serve all the folks who came out dressed as 1940’s resistance fighters / but where are the real ones now? is there any one now? those carry the flags of the enemies they’d been fighting / it’s the kind of mess of fighting wars but letting the ideas steep in / what was true then’s still true now / that the law is the cop who kicks down your door and justice is to stand up against them / open up those borders through the backwoods, and if you must open your house // and maybe, oh maybe I’ve never had any heroes / cuz deeply I knew I’d be disappointed by historical lies / but this is a folk song to tell tales and I have one fitting right here / she doesn’t wear no uniform, likely doesn’t carry a gun either / she just gave a ride to two people to the nearest train station they wouldn’t be snatched by cops at but they got caught // you know what happens in this country but back in 2015 it just hadn’t in a long time. After years of positivism in the language, changing words so that they meant something entirely different in order to never be able to criticize anything anymore. After years of that well, she got condemned by a tribunal. A tribunal like the one we have in Marseille with swastikas etched on its walls. This this day, she got condemned and the two hitchhikers likely deported back to a camp of refugees or to countries they were trying to escape. Deported by the same police and snitched on by the same train compagny workers like they’re used to. This doesn’t really stop all these people to dress up as resistance fighters once a year but fascism in Europe is alive and all too well. Her offence the court said was « solidarity ». In a world where solidarity is an offense of the law, abiding it is a crime. / In a world where solidarity is an offense of the law abiding by is a crime / you can dress up howether you want as today’s resistance fighters / it doesn’t matter as long as we bring it down…
