the revolution’s upon us
but it’s not what you think
there won’t be any slogans,
protests, prophets spilling ink
this time there won't be leaders
no cause to join or lead
just walk away from where they need you
no young minds to warp or feed
this revolution needs no push
no spark to start the flame
the revolution’s here and all we know
is we don’t think the same

like brick by brick in ancient Egypt
pyramids were made
but like them our’s aren't built for us
so fuck the pharaohs we’re not slaves

your band’s a revolution
so fuck what people say
so’s your zine, your record label
no one can take that away

the capitalist system’s fucked
‘cause you’re not pushed by wealth
just use this tact with all your work
this new world’s begun now
so DO IT YOURSELF!

this time there won't be leaders
no cause to join or lead
just walk away from where they need you
no young minds to warp or feed
this revolution needs no push
no spark to start the flame
the revolution’s here and all we know
is we don’t think the same

your band’s a revolution
so fuck what people say
so’s your zine, your record label
no one can take that away
