lyrics

Oh, when I wrote this song, god damn, it was 2008
You'd think we'd all be livin' fat today
that we would have come to a golden age
But no, we ain't

Kids livin' in luxuries unprecedented before in the world
Unsatisfied as they've ever been
If great men could have foreseen how it would unfurl
Would they have bothered at all?
Would they have answered the call?
Well, they might not have bothered at all when it had taken the balls to say

(Chorus)

"Fuck the power!"
So many men have paid the ultimate price just to say those words
"Fuck the power!" just to be heard
Fuck the cowards
It doesn't matter if they need it or not, they're gonna have their way
But there's always that day
When everybody says "fuck the power!"

Before I can support the fam, I pay homage to Uncle Sam
Who finances occupations of sand
And sends thousands to die in a foreign land
Just for his old man

Economic complexities are designed to keep you confused
Disguise two guys who've been compromised
Call it freedom, but you need 'em to choose just between those two
Well it's a hell of a ruse, but what are you gonna do?
Well, you choose when they tell you to choose because you don't wanna' lose
The game they coerce you to play

Chorus

The ability to follow and lead allows us to be civilized
But it can't be denied that the other side
Of that double edged sword takes lives
We're talking our demise
Now try that on for size

It's happened hundreds of times
When the king's got his eyes on the prize and he forgets to be wise
He's in for one big surprise
'Cause the cries turn to thousands of guys; revolution on the rise!
Chorus

Let's start one more revolution!
Come jump on board, revolution!
Let's nix this shit institution!
Revolution!
Ska revolution!

Let's start one more revolution!
Come jump on board, revolution!
There's too much hate and pollution!
Revolution!
Ska revolution!
