Children of the Bad Revolution is an unreleased leaked track. It is registered on BMI and ISWC. Written and Produced By: Elizabeth Grant, Jody Street, James Dring....
Take me in your fast car, Mercedes
Kissing on your neck while you're driving
Doesn't care, I'm always on my Blackberry
All the time all the time, buying into every line
I'm a flashy little lush, but he thinks I'm really fine
Notorious and wild, takes me where I'm gonna shine

Where the bad boys roll hard dressin' like James Dean
And the vixen starlets feel so good to be

We're children of the bad revolution
And partyin's the only solution
In our minds there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be
We're gonna get free free free free free free free
Get free

Baby, we are chancers on the scene
Glamour in the gutters only so arty
Sick graffiti artisan, tabloid queen
Mix it up, mix it up, every 'do you've ever seen
We're acting really tough
Like the world belongs to us
'Cause it does, yeah it must
What we do creates the buzz

Where the bad boys blow smoke just like they're James Dean
And the it girls blow kisses just like Marilyn

We're children of the bad revolution
And partyin's the only solution
In our minds there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be
We're gonna get free free free free free free free
Get free

We run for our lives
Break out of our chains
Let's hope that we merge
Create our own games
DJs, rockstars, posers we are
The new politicians, their celebrity editions
And it's so pornographic
But it's tragic, nothing magic makes us free
To be all we want to be, want to be

We're children of the bad revolution
And partyin's our only solution
In our minds there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be
We're gonna get free free free free free free free
Get free

We're children of the bad revolution
And partyin's our only solution
In our minds there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be
We're gonna get free free free free free free free
Get free

We gonna get free, oh

    General CommentSo a few of the lyrics are likely wrong - there's one part that I can't really understand, posted above as

    "They got 'em in chains,
    Let's hope that we merge"

    I'm quite sure that is incorrect, but I just can't tell what she's saying, and those are the lyrics I saw everywhere else.

    The only other part I'm not sure about (though I think it is correct) is "Mix it up, mix it up, every dude you ever seen."

    If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate them.

    My InterpretationI think the jist of the whole song is to do with celebrities influence on society mixed with somebody from the inside giving their own personal account.

    "Take me in your fast car, Mercedes
    Kissing on your neck while you're driving
    Doesn't care, I'm always on my blackberry
    All the time all the time, buying into every line
    I'm a flashy little lush, but he thinks I'm really fine
    Notorious and wild takes me where I'm gonna shine"

    Shes either having a relationship with some rich guy and he is helping her get 'there' or she is sleeping with him so that he will get her 'there' either way shes going to 'shine'

    "Where the bad boys roll hard dressin' like James Dean
    And the vixen starlets feel so good to be" Everyone is dressing well, everyone is rich and famous in the area they are hanging at, shes enjoying playing the part of a 'vixen'




    How any old joe can go from just your average person to a major celebrity within a short time span if they know the right people and do everything they might have to do to get there.
    Most other 'career' choices have to be worked at for years and years for even a tiny bit of fame.
    The kind of people she is talking about ARE 'fame' in itself.

    "We're children of the bad revolution
    And partyin's the only solution
    In our minds there ain't any confusion
    About who we are and what we're gonna be
    We're gonna get free free free free free free free
    Get free"

    'Children of the bad revolution' could be interpreted in at least three ways I can think of, but I'll go with it meaning that from money and power(which come from war and like it or not death and destruction) the 'first' celebrities born, from each era there are always those that idolize celebrity culture so much that they want to become it and so they do. Its a circle. Whatever 'revolution' is going on there are always going to be children from it.
    It can be personal also, alot of celebrities have had very difficult lives before become a celebrity, they may of been poor, lost everything and everyone, had drug/alcohol habits, been homeless etc when you are in that state fame,money and power can be at its most appealing as what else do you have to live for? You go from one end of the spectrum to the other, which is like some kind of metaphor for the whole birth/life/death cycle ... those people inspire the next generation in the same predicaments....

    'We run our lives' In her eyes with this lifestyle you take a fast track whilst being 'free' singing.. writing.. being an artist. Attending 'parties' as a career... everyone without that can be viewed as being chained in a sense and not expressing themselves. If YOU are the force of fame then you are your own career etc
    In the world we live in every day life can feel constrictive, getting to 'higher places' seems to offer some kind of freedom, money ,power, a voice etc to have some impact or imprint on the world rather. Basically being a CAUSE not an EFFECT .. of course everyone is both but this is a much bolder obvious way.

    'but its tragic, nothing magic makes us free' im at a loss here but the most basic guess would be that no matter what you do in life freedom is a time period, not something permanent just like anything. Really its the way you view it, you could say freedom is an emotion. One persons prison is another persons meadow. How can we every be truly 'free' until we leave our earthly bodies that demand so much just for survival... depends what you call freedom.
