Petrol bombs and barricades
Anything to have our say
Consequence of no choice at all
Empires rise and empires fall
It's time to flip some coins and
It's time to turn some tables
Cause if we have the vision I know that we are able
Suck on my words for a while and
Choke on the truth of a million dead
There is no prestige in your title
We are after your head
The destruction of everything
Is the creation of something new
Your new world order is on fire
And soon you'll be too
Sabotage will set us free
Throw a rock in the machine

    General Commentthis song has got to be what Redemption Song was to Bob Marley. This pretty much underlines the refused anarchic views and what they are trying to do and trying to make people think about

    "its time to flip some coins, and its time to turn some tables"

    Fucking Brilliant to say the least.

    General CommentYou can find out a lot about what Refused's songs mean if you read their manifestos in the liner notes of The Shape of Punk to Come:

    "The Apollo programme was a hoax or so we say. The biggest lie was market economy that blinded us with the glory of prosperity and freedom. The deck was dealt and we all lost, on our knees in the dirt hoping for salvation and then we look and there are golden drops of dawn functioning as oral sagas, keeping us shackled, making glory of the lies that the spectacle provides us with. So as we sit tight and enjoy the soap operas that are designed to keep us bleeding out of our eyes and keeps us nodding and sighing, there is still hope in the petrol bomb and in it, the revolution. For in the destruction and the overthrowing there is a certainty of salvation. We need to destroy the museum and it’s old artefacts, we need to tear down the power structures that enslaves and then in revolution we can live and be alive. Yes, this is our hymn and our praise to the brave and bold stranger in the night, to the fed up worker and the angry wife. Hope, revolution and dedication. Fight fire with fire and everything will burn. Yeah."

    General CommentThis is a very nice song, and one that demonstrates how musically versatile Refused are (or were). It's a quiet song, but one of the angriest I've ever heard.

    General CommentBy the way, can someone edit this? It's supposed to be "NOW it's time to flip some coins/ AND it's time to turn some tables."
