lyrics

…bring them down, bring them down / let’s break it all to pieces and figure out what we can / but bring it down, bring it down / nothing in power can stay / because the whole thing is corrupt doesn’t matter what it says it’ll never stop the oppression / at best change its mode of access from birthright to merit / concessions in the details to never have to change, oh no / when I say it, I mean you and I and us and them / we all play our parts in this fucking system / as cogs more often than not but we’re the well greased pieces that keep it going and I don’t just mean casting no ballots while so many others are catching bullets or dodging teargas canisters most just keep on not doing any single thing / we all cheered when that cop car burned / but soon after went back home with nothing to hold onto as we moved on from that fact that we may be winning, but were we winning ? / at least tearing the covers / and underneath every emperor is always naked, every power violent, and no freedom were ever granted / and while this latest line may seem so naive to you / I won’t waste my time helping anyone to a position of power / I won’t waste anymore of my time helping anyone to cling to a position of power / so let’s just bring it down please burn it the down / break it all to pieces and figure out if there’s something worth keeping.
