lyrics

Take a look around at the face of people on the street
Gaze straight down, complicate frown, shuffle in their feet.
Broken memories of the day when life seemed really good.
Now we see disease and rage in the local neighbourhood.

Let me do whatever I want to. No-one's telling me.
Struggle has stayed the bane of my life not a pampered pedigree
I’ll strike up a conversation laden with insincerity.
Try to divide a piece of the pie in a man-made malady.

Civil disobedience.
Looking for a precedent.
Justified we defend
Civil disobedience.

Herd us in a market place where everyone's the same.
Try to get by. Keep alive. Don't mind that the rules change.
Gotta get out. Stand and shout and shake off all these chains.
A hollow economy just for numbers cannot be maintained.

Civil disobedience.
Looking for a precedent.
Justified we defend
Civil disobedience.

I'm not saying anything's wrong, I just don't want to stay.
Stay in the kind of life that you like. You think it's okay.
Take what you lack. Give nothing back. “All go to hell,” you say.
A reckoning day - sooner or later someone has to pay.

Civil disobedience.
Looking for a precedent.
Justified we defend
Civil disobedience.

Civil disobedience.
Looking for a precedent.
Justified we defend
Civil disobedience.
Looking for a precedent.
Justified we defend
Civil disobedience.
