about

Lately I've been feeling more than a bit disenchanted with humankind and human society in general — and specifically with how those who hold a lot of power in the worldwide capitalistic-militaristic patriarchy treat those who hold very little power.

So I made a song to blow off some steam.
It's catchy. And danceable. And you can sing along. Lyrics are below.

INTRO

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
let's burn this fucker down
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
tear it right down to the ground

VERSE 1

hey, you!
are you listening?
of course you are
because your spies are everywhere

we're the people
we're the ones who do the work
so listen the fuck up

we don't wanna fight your wars
just to come home dead and maimed
won't sacrifice ourselves for you
while you take our rights away

we don't want your drones up high
killing children down below
we don't want your secret courts
and we don't want Guantanamo

we don't want your bank bailouts
while we get kicked out of our homes
we don't want your dead-end jobs
we don't want your student loans

saddle us with debt for life
try to make us all behave
We don't want your credit cards
with which you turn us into slaves

HOOK 1

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
let's burn this fucker down
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
tear it right down to the ground

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
we'll make us something new
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
something good and right and true

VERSE 2

we don't want your media
breeding apathy and fear
Have us looking over there
while you plunder over here

we don't want your corporate greed
coz everywhere it goes it kills
and we don't want you congressmen
coz you're all just a bunch of shills

we don't want your war on drugs
and juries that don't know their rights
"too big to jail," the rich walk free
the poor and dark get locked up tight

we don't want your police state
that you call democracy
so, go fuck your police state
we'll take back our sovereignty

HOOK 2

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
let's burn this fucker down
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
tear it right down to the ground

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
we'll make us something new
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
something good and right and true

VERSE 3

we don't want your big machines
tearing Mother Earth to shreds
we don't want your toxic waste
poisoning our watersheds

we don't want your constant "growth"
can't you see enough's enough?
can't you see your thinking's flawed
and there's only so much stuff?

we don't want your endless greed
and the profits that you crave
and we don't want your currency
you send us into war to save

and why you subsidizing nukes?
will you never get a clue?
Fukushima's not enough?
what the fuck is wrong with you?!

HOOK 3

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
let's burn this fucker down
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
tear it right down to the ground

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
we'll make us something new
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
something good and right and true

VERSE 4

we don't want your brutal might
we just want our human rights
we just want our water clean
and fresh air for us to breathe

we don't want your spiteful faith
your religious bigotry
we don't want your stifling rules
or your sick misogyny

why the hell can you not see
this ain't how we wanna be
and we will not let you go on
doing what you've always done

we don't want your hate and fear
don't tell us who we're supposed to be
we just wanna live in peace
and be loving, strong and free

HOOK 4

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
let's burn this fucker down
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
tear it right down to the ground

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
gonna burn this fucker down
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
tear it right down to the ground

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
let's burn this fucker down
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
tear it right down to the ground

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
we'll make us something new
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
something good and right and true
