The Generic Revolution Song of 2017

(Download link at the bottom of the page.)


High in the hills, a new queen has a country

Down by the river an empire holds sway

And the empress cares not that not all have spoken

And the old queen has nothing to say


In the hills it is held that we're all of us equal

In truth not for glory nor riches nor gold

Old imperial power still poisons its people

After the empire's been sold


A declaration has been made

The seeds of freedom sown

We've been taken to the barricade

Now let's take back our home


The will of the people, broken then stolen, 

 By the punch and judy parlay-lament 

  Now we've been told the country's all sold

   Our money's all spent on rent


Stand with me brothers, stand with me sisters

 free men and free women for freedom for all

  for now we begin, we've a country to win

   or nothing left at all


But I work for macdonalds and walmart and tescos

 amazon, uber and starbucks and sky

  you can't eat freedom, if you're slave to the wages

   until the day you die

chorus revisited

A declaration has been made

 we're free to be alone

  but I'm still here on the barricades

   thinking of my home

Who profits from borders, what currencies paid

 There's always a crowd when there's cash to be made

  Get in the queue, maybe you'll get some too

   For that's how we're going to be saved   

chorus finally

A declaration has been made

And the spoils of freedom shown

and I'm looking from the barricades

I wonder, where went home
