"Shakedown" as written by and Joshua Paul/orr Stuart....



They come into our life not even listening baby.
Long hallways dressed in gold to justify the souls that they've sold.
We'll start a revolution and bring them to their knees
You know that this will be a shakedown, a shakedown baby.
We'll start a revolution and bring them to their knees
You know that this will be a shakedown, a shakedown baby.
Our eyes are open so synthetic suits have no where to go.
Our eyes are open so synthetic suits have no where to go.
No facist lies, or censored cries.
Cause now's the time for us to rise.
We'll burn their bibles and starve their families.
So a word to the wise "Don't fuck with us".
We'll start a revolution and bring them to their knees
You know this will be a shakedown, a shakedown baby.
Gonna be a shakedown. Gonna be a shakedown.
Gonna be a shakedown. Gonna be a shakedown.
We'll start a revolution and bring them to their knees
You know that this will be a shakedown, a shakedown baby.
We'll start a revolution and bring them to their knees
You know that this will be a shakedown, a shakedown baby.

    General CommentI seriously think this song is about racism.
    I have thought long and hard.. I got no idea what else it could mean...
    Australia is currently undergoing a serious immagration problem..
    Asian, African/Samoan etc.
    I think that the lyrics in this song means taking action against them..


    They come into our life not even listening baby.
    Long hallways dressed in gold to justify the souls that they've sold.

    They come not understanding us,
    Doing whatever they want not caring.

    We'll start a revolution and bring them to their knees
    You know that this will be a shakedown, a shakedown baby.
    We'll start a revolution and bring them to their knees
    You know that this will be a shakedown, a shakedown baby.

    We are going to revolt against them, and bring them literally to their knees,
    Shakedown meanings were not going to bother with it and do whatever we can to stop it.


    Our eyes are open so synthetic suits have no where to go.
    Our eyes are open so synthetic suits have no where to go.
    No facist lies, or censored cries.
    Cause now's the time for us to rise.
    We'll burn their bibles and starve their families.
    So a word to the wise "Don't fuck with us".

    We are so open to them we dont see the problem they are causing..and we are stuck until we do something.
    No lies about it.. We will take action and not bullshit our way through everything.. and will do whatever is needed...
    its time for us to rise against it.
    well burn their beliefs and get rid of their families.
    dont f#ck with us... saying mess with us. we will win.

    then were going to start a revolution against it all and do what we can.

    Im not sure if these are the real meanings..
    after looking over the lyrics and listening to the song over and over I got no idea what it would be about..
    Im sorry if im wrong.. sorry if i offended I didnt mean too.. this is just how i portray the meaning of the song =\
    that and ive had a few drinks.. so yeah.
    anyways.. thanks for the time.
    great song by a great band. whatever the meaning.
