The Jerks – Rage lyrics
Children begging at the streets at night
Knocking on cars till the morning light

People standing in line for a kilo of rice
Welcome to the dark ages, the era of lies

Dreams of progress, of visions gone mad
Mendiola's still drenched with innocent blood
Demolition men rumbles through smokey mountain homes
Darkness indeed, justice dressed in gloom

But I'll go not gently into the night
Rage against the dying of the light

Sing a song about this terrible sight
Rage until the lightning strikes
Go not gently, go not gently, go not gently
And rage with me

And the names and faces of the tyrants change
But poverty, pain and murder remains
And the voices of truth are locked up in chains
Darkness remains, freedom in flames

    The first stannza is an everyday acceptable norm in Philippine society. Depicting the plight of the majority of the people - being poor. Second stanza refers to past and current response of the government in the poverty and injustices directly and indirectly perpetuated by the government and ruling elite. Third stanza, calling for action and the feeling of the songwriter/artist of the situation in the society. Last stanza, the never changing situation in regards to injustices, tyrants after tyrants -faces change but not the system.
