Why don't we all strap bombs to our chests and ride our bikes to the next G-7 picnic? It seems easier with every clock tick. But whose will would that represent? Mine? Yours? The rank-and-file's? Or better yet: the Government's? But I don't want to catalyze or synthesize the second Final Solution. I don't want to be the Steve Smith of the Revolution. Do you see the analogy? We're the Oilers. The World Bank- the Flames! And just 2 minutes remain in the 7th game of the best of 7 series! Yeah, Jesus saves! Gretzky scores! The workers slave. The rich get more. One wrong move and we risk the cup. So play The Man, not the puck. Why don't we plant a mechanic virus and erase the memory of the machines that maintain this capitalist dynasty? And yes, I recognize the irony that the very system I oppose affords me the luxury of biting the hand that feeds. But that's exactly why priviledged fucks like me should feel obliged to whine and kick and scream- until everyone has everything they need.

    General CommentAwesome lyrics, awesome song. The ending (from "irony" on) really pushes me toward socialism. It's powerful.

    General CommentAmazing song, top 10 Propagandhi song. Mostly self explanatory...Although most non hockey loving canadians like me had to find out who Steve Smith was.

    For others he was a hockey player who scored on his own net in the 7th game in the final minutes of a playoff game causing his team to lose.

    General CommentThis song rocks so hard...super fast and energetic.
    It's hard not to love politically charged lyrics fused with hockey references.

    General Comment^Since I posted that I've read three books by an writer named Daniel Quinn (Ishmael; The Story of B; My Ishmael) and I've realized that when "every one has everything they need" it won't be under a socialist government. It won't be under any government, i.e. anarchy.
    Even more powerful now.

    General CommentThis song is brilliant like every song by Propagandhi,
    the title basically sums up the song
    the g7 picnic is basically cause the g7 meetings are shit and get nothing done
