"Gandhi Mate, Gandhi" as written by Roughton Reynolds, Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow and Robert Rolfe....
Now, I don't know about you, but I don't think the primary purpose of your life, of my life and the entirety of the human race's is just to blindingly consume to support a failing economy and a faulty system. forever and ever until we run out of every resource and have to resort to blowing each other up to ensure our own survival. I don't think we're supposed to sit by idle while we continue to use a long outdated system that produces war, poverty, collusion, corruption, ruins our environment and threatens every aspect of our health and does nothing but divide and segregate us. I don't think how much military equipment we are selling to other countries, how many hydrocarbons we're burning, how much money is being printed and exchanged, is a good measure of how healthy our society is but I do think I can speak for everyone when I say, we're sick of this shit.

Time to mobilize
Time to open eyes
We are not a quiet pocket of resistance
This is real, but we cannot afford to fail
Act with, act with persistence
This is real, but we cannot afford to fail
Army, establish order
Respect me and fear me
Fuck you
We have no respect
And when tomorrow comes
We're gonna stamp on your head (pig)

Whoa, woah
Calm down, (calm down mate), calm the fuck down
Gandhi mate, remember gandhi (jesus, just remember)
Alright, alright I'm fine

See if we keep them silent then,
They'll resort to violence and that's how we criminalize change

Awhhhh,
Yabba dabba do one son, we don't want you rules
Who you fooling son, we've got all the tools
We need to build a whole new system
To correct these flaws
(you know what), I've already listed them

You're a communist
You're a fucking utopianist
Ah here they come, the immersive labels
But they're attempted fails

Cos man, we so far out your comfort zone

We stop, think, begin to revive
We stop, think, begin to revive
We stop, we think, we begin to revive
We begin to revive

Put a call out to the frontline
Get the message out to the the contact squad
Transmit emergency frequencies
Put a call out to the frontline
Get the message out to the the contact squad
Put a call out, put a call out, put a call ouuuuut

Oh and the jigsaw starts to build
Oh and the jigsaw starts to build

Piece
By
Piece

Open their minds

Transmit emergency frequencies

Open their minds

Transmit emergency frequencies

Emergency frequencies

Emergency frequencies

Emergency frequencies

Emergency frequencies

    General CommentJust a few small mistakes:
    "resource and fall to the result to blowing" is "resource and have to resort to blowing"
    "to sit by either while" - "to sit by idle while"
    "Army, establish order" - "I am the established order"
    "We have no respect" - "We hold no respect"
    "We don't want you rules"- "We don't want your rules"
    "(You know what)" - "(Yeh like what?)"
    "Ah here they come, the immersive labels" - "There come the emotive labels"
    "But they're attempted fails" - "But their attempt just fails"

    General CommentHuh.. The song seems as if there are two speakers.. The shifting of contradicting lines being shouted and all that

    Anyway, great song
