Eric, Wren, and Jensen were activists
Heads loaded with theory, their hearts were filled with passion
They shared the same left wing politics, like the same music, they were part of the protest movement
Anna presented herself as a feminist, studied the way they talked and dressed, fashioned herself an anarchist
Eric fell in love with Anna after meeting at a Crimethinc conference
He didn't know it, but Anna was an FBI informant

Eric fell in love with an FBI informant
He shared his dreams of revolution, now he's sitting in solitary confinement
Be careful what you think, be careful what you say, it might be used against you in court one day
Anna thinks she's a hawk, but she's just a fucking snitch

The headline called them "The Believers"; comparisons were made to a terrorist organization
Anna had the car, Anna paid the rent, Anna helped find the recipe to make the explosives
She encouraged her friends to follow through with their plan, they were going to build a bomb and blow up the Nimbus dam
Their conversations were being recorded, they didn't know it, but Anna was an FBI informant

Eric fell in love with an FBI informant
He shared his dreams of revolution, now he's sitting in solitary confinement
Be careful what you think, be careful what you say, it might be used against you in court one day
Anna thinks she's a hawk, but she's just a fucking snitch

Black suburbans and AR-15 rifles
Agents made their arrest in a K-Mart parking lot
Caught with the supplies for the bomb in hand, the three were charged with conspiracy against the government
Wren and Jensen traded testimony in exchange for leniency
Eric was sentenced to 20 years in the penitentiary
Eric, Wren, and Jensen were activists
They didn't know it, but Anna was an FBI informant

Eric fell in love with an FBI informant
He shared his dreams of revolution, now he's sitting in solitary confinement
Be careful what you think, be careful what you say, it might be used against you in court one day
Anna thinks she's a hawk, but she's just a fucking snitch

    General Commentthe song pretty much speaks for itself. It's about the Sacramento Three, 3 environmental activists. A girl who went by the name of "Anna" was hired by the FBI to infiltrate their group and pass along info to the authorities about their activities, recording conversations, etc.
