lyrics

Smuggled
Across the border
As a child
And get deported

People learn to break it
And we are better for it

Art is locked up
From the yearning

But hidden servers freed it
And we are better for it

Prisons built up everyday
Doesn't matter anyway

Knows that
It’s not his duty
His heart won’t let him
Fund our fighting

And so he doesn’t pay it
And we are better for it

Sick of chemo
Sick of hurting

And so her neighbor grows it
And we are better for it

People locked up everyday
But life gets better anyway

All in spite of the monopoly

May the dam break, may those jail cells open wide
Are you a friend to the meek, this is your chance to decide
May the dam break, may those jail cells open wide
You will never get dry if you fight for the wrong side

Sing freedom songs
Chains break at dawn
Wait for the sun
All night

Orwell
Saw it coming
But little heroes
Keep on loving

The truth and so they tell it
And we are better for it
