Thanks Bastards!

Thank you Mr. Officer Grey (great?) for all the things you said to me, for all the good that you have ever done.
Will you, what would I be, all the gas upon my flames, my love and rage all roll up into one.
For everytime your gun goes off, and new rebel is born.
So when there's 41 bullets, there's 41 thousand thorns in your side
well take a ride down to precient 29, and we'll sing and dance and break the code of silence.

thank you governor
Thank you governor
to the mayor and
the commisioner
your monster is alive now
shes taken to the streets
crashing through your opra house and tearing at the seats
for all the times you sign your name, someone out there dies
found a wallet, not a gun
a mother's wife in tears
from her eyes
we despise
your hollow truths and honest lies
now you can sing the monster into slumber

THANKS BASTARDS!
You made me what I am

THANKS BASTARDS!
I took the goods and ran

THANKS BASTARDS!
You made me what I am

THANKS BASTARDS!
I took the goods and ran

I took the goods and ran X3

Homeland security Vs civil liberty
I'm studying in the shadows of our state
I seen the bones they tried to hide
cutthroat (?) other side
The Flood of US bath water is placed?

the funeral march of all the victims of your power war
rob the right to steal the night and rebels shall be born
for ever more your the storm we should play after it pours
and joy is sure to come after your silence. X2


THANKS BASTARDS!
You made me what I am

THANKS BASTARDS!
I took the goods and ran

THANKS BASTARDS!
You made me what I am

THANKS BASTARDS!
I took the goods and ran

I took the goods and ran X3

    General CommentGreat song about the abuse of executive authority and how this causes the birth of more rebels/anti-authoritarians ("You made me what I am"), first talking about the police (the "41 bullets" part is a specific reference to the police murdering Amadou Diallo) and continuing with federal abuses of power.

    General CommentHomeland security vs. civil liberty
    I'm studying in the shadow of our state
    I've seen the bones they tried to hide
    Cutthroat living's other side
    The flood of U.S. bathwater displaced

    The rest is mostly right with some typos.

    General CommentIt's a song that rubs the fact that the use illegitimate authority results in the creation of many socially and politically aware anarchists in the faces of hierarchs.
