"Revenge" as written by Ivan Kral and Patti Lee Smith....
You're sitting in your high castle, looking down at us
Sure that we'll be happy slaves,
Who'll never make a fuss
There's a reverential silence
As millions watch you snore
Live to serve, serve to live
Well, we want something more

We want revenge
We want it
We want it now
We want revenge
We want it
We want it now

We want revenge
We want it
We want it now

Spread the word in every church,
In every little town
The wizard is just a man like us
We're going to hunt him down

We're rolling back the red carpet,
Snuffing your candle out
Like you crushed every free-thinker
Who dared to raise a doubt
There's gonna be a vacancy
And we'd all like the job
The worms have turned, it's time you learned
Your flock's become a mob

We want revenge
We want it
We want it now
We want revenge
We want it
We want it now

We want revenge
We want it
We want it now

Tortures and holy wars,
Hatred all around
We know that you're responsible,
We're going to hunt you down

We want revenge
We want it
We want it now
We want revenge
We want it
We want it now

An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth,
We've seen the light and we know the truth
We want your glory and your power,
Vengeance will be ours

You said we're all born innocent,
In God's eyes we're the same
But some go hungry and unloved
And it's you we blame

We want revenge
We want it
We want it now
We want revenge
We want it
We want it now

We want revenge
We want it
We want it now
We want revenge
We want it
We want it now
