When the party starts on Monday
Christmas starts in June
When no one minds I've just arrived and I'll be leaving soon
If I return with eyes half-opened
Don't ask me where I was
I do my father's drugs

When every revolution
Is sponsored by the state
There's no bravery in bayonets
In tearing down the gates
If you see me with a rifle
Don't ask me what it's for
I fight my father's war

When hunger strikes are fashion
And freedom is routine
All in all the streets in Cleveland are named for Martin Luther King
You will see me at the protest
But you'll notice that i drag
I burn my father's flag

So when the party starts on Monday
And Christmas starts in June
When no one minds I've just arrived and I'll be leaving soon
If I return with eyes half-opened
Don't ask me where I was
I do my father's drugs
I do my father's drugs

    General Comment"There is no bravery in being asked / in turning down the case" should read "there's no bravery in bayonets / in tearing down the gates." And ArthurJensen's correct about the hunger strikes line.
