lyrics

They hear all that you hear and read what you write
Have access to your mail and know your favorite site
While you fund both their wars and the other side
Now it's all exposed and you're the one they fight

This is for Bradley, the pressure is on
This is for Julian, your freedom is gone
This is for Edward, the Empire's lost son
And Dr. Kelly, you were too late to run

Ze noemden je een gek, een crimineel
Want de waarheid werd Defensie teveel
Onthulde hoe mijn privacy wordt gekraakt
En hoe verzet door geweld wordt verdacht gemaakt

Dit is voor Rop, je hebt ons voorbereid
Dit is voor Fred, gestraft voor de waarheid
Dit is voor Louis, vermoord in de strijd
Complottheorie ingehaald door de realiteit

Verzet is vitaal alleen als jij dat wilt
No more denial, resistance is vital
This is for us, because we need to act
Dit is voor ons, want verandering komt niet vanzelf
Komt niet vanzelf
Komt niet vanzelf
