Secret bureaucracy, it's just a lie
The devil's henchmen, in suit and tie
A sacred brotherhood, an ancient rite
Politicians and the double lives they hide

Violate your rights, no more equality
Surrender freedom, your social security
We the people face unconstitutional lies
In greed we trust, in revolution we die

Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves
The land of liberty needs a regime change
Until you no longer know right from wrong
The constitution isn't worth the paper it's written on

Violate your rights, no more equality
Surrender freedom, your social security
We the people face unconstitutional lies
In greed we trust, in revolution we die

In revolution we die

Screams from the future, warn of calamity
The coming plagues of the new disease
The illuminati, one world currency
One world religion, one world everything

Violate your rights, no more equality
Surrender freedom, your social security
We the people face unconstitutional lies
In greed we trust, in revolution we die

We the people face unconstitutional lies
In greed we trust, in revolution we die

We the people face unconstitutional lies
In greed we trust, in revolution we die

    General Comment:To me, it sounds like he's not very happy with what the President is doing right now. He is definitely not Pro-Obama.

    Song Meaning:I think the song explains how the Government is taking control over all the people, and now even if we fight it could be a lost cause cause how bad things have gotten. Pro Dave!!!!!!

    My Interpretation:The meaning of this song is extremely easy to find out, and that's the problem with it. It could be said in regular conversation with no music or singing, and it wouldn't even sound like a song or even a poem.

    Anyway, the song is catchy, but I can't stand the lyrics. Dave always tries to make America sound like Nazi Germany. Hell, he said that flat out on several occasions. Until the president starts putting millions of people to death for having inferior genes, how about we leave the Nazi comparisons out of it.

    Oh yeah, and Dave? Someone who is against gay marriage should NOT be bitching about equality.
