"Karl Marx And History" as written by and Fredrik Granberg Stefan Granberg....
We got firecrackers and red balloons
And a street orchestra that plays a tune
Confetti's flying in the air
A lot of people are gathered here
We got placards posters & stickers to
We got reggae music by Yabby You
We got redflags, blackflags and flag with stars
We got slogans painted on our guitars

We speak about freedom, speak about freedom
We speak about war, speak about war
We got a vision, baby, we got a vision
That we just can't ignore

It sure rains on our parade
But the wind will change the clouds will fade
A change will come eventually
So says Karl Marx and history

We got vegetarian gumbo stew
The Rockin' Pneumonia and the Punk Rock Flu
We got Iko Iko and Stagger Lee
And the junco partner's leaning against a tree
We got Emma Goldman and Chomsky too
We got things to say we got stuff to do
We got all kinds of freedom fighters gathered here
We got our friend in the corner over there drinking beer

We speak about the future, speak about the future
We speak about the past, speak about the past
We speak about a new world order, a new world order, a new world order
And we hope that we can get there fast, a new world order

It sure rains on our parade
But the wind will change the clouds will fade
A change will come eventually
So says Karl Marx and history

Karl Marx and history [Repeat x 6]
So says Karl Marx and history.

    General Comment This is about how Capitalism will eventually fade away:it sure rains on our parade
    but the wind will change the clouds will fade
    a change will come eventually so says karl marx and history
    As said by Marx in the Communist Manifesto.

    General CommentWise Aimee? Are you sure you are from this planet =D most punk bands are in one way or another political (and should by in my opinion)....saw randy last year on tour with Bad Religion (does somebody say 'political pop punk?')
