This isn't business, it's our hope and it's our voice.
You're not a product, so tell them you can't be bought.
I don't want corporate backing, five hundred thousand bucks a year,
That's not what it's about. it's something so much more. More than money.
Dissent rolled into words, they don't belong here.
Do you really think they care?
This music belongs to us, it's finally something we control.
I won't let it get torn away. It won't be torn away.
What's the message sent when your actions contradict your words?
I don't want to play, you can keep your quarter.
I'll have no part. I won't stay in line or keep in order.
Yeah, you know what it means.
Hey, Mr. Superstar do you really believe we think you care?
You think you're saying something? You're saying fucking nothing.
Your message is killed by the paycheck in your hand.
It's already hard at work as your capitalist machine destroys.
What's the message sent when your actions contradict your words?
I don't want to play, you can keep your Quarter.
I'll have no part. I won't stay in line or keep in order.
You don't know what it means.
To me the message is the most important thing.
Communication is more important than entertainment.
This music saved my life,
So I'll be dead and fucking gone before it's bought and sold
Just like appliances and cars.
