"We all must beware of the yellow pearl"

The Yellow Pearl control, attack, attack, attack, attack
Yellow Pearl
It is foolish to venture into strange enchanted places
If they aren't the places you want to be

Attack, attack, attack, attack, attack, attack, attack
Is what we lack

We will arise
We will control
We will command
We will patrol

It is foolish under the guise of love and liberty
That we should capitalize and rob and fell
The poor for the socialistic tree

We will arise
We will control
Attack, attack, attack, attack, attack, attack, attack
Is what we lack
That's what you lack

We shall arise
They will arise
We shall control
They will control
We shall command
They will command
We shall patrol
They will patrol

We must fight back
We will arise
They will arise
We will control

We are now living in a situation
Where that self same situation depends on the Yellow Pearl
Attack, attack, attack, attack, attack, attack, attack
Is what we lack
We will arise
They will arise
We will control
They will control
We will command
They shall command
We will patrol
They will patrol
Arise
Yellow Pearl's upon us now
We must fight back

We will arise
They will arise
We will control
Attack, attack, attack, attack, attack, attack, attack

Is what we lack
Is what we lack
Don't trust in Liberty
To save your soul
It is genocide to let liberty lose control
Control
We must decide
Control
We the Yellow Pearl we will control
