Civil disobedience
Has many permutations
You can block the streets in front of
The United Nations

You can lay down on the tracks
Keep the nuke trains out of town
Or you can pour gas on the condo
And you can burn it down

So here's a toast to the night
Three cheers and a grunt
To the Earth Liberation Front
The Earth Liberation Front

You can go to Senate hearings
Wait 'til they call your name
My hat is off to anyone
With the will to play that game

But if you want to know the truth
What warms my aching heart
Is to see the masked avengers
Come to tear the road apart

So here's a toast to the night
Three cheers and a grunt
To the Earth Liberation Front
The Earth Liberation Front

They'll tell you that it's violent
To destroy a logging truck
These are the very people
Who'd kill the planet for a buck

Talk to the governor
Be reasonable, they say
Maybe we can talk tomorrow
But we can pull the crops today

So here's a toast to the night
Three cheers and a grunt
To the Earth Liberation Front
The Earth Liberation Front

There are so many things of beauty
In this world to see
A wild, running river
Or an old-growth redwood tree

But in such an ugly situation
So sinister and dire
There's nothing quite so lovely
As a Wal-Mart on fire

So here's a toast to the night
Three cheers and a grunt
To the Earth Liberation Front
The Earth Liberation Front
