Music to dump tea by

 

Once an honest man could go from sunrise to its set
Without encountering agents of his state or government
But a sorry cloud of tyranny has fallen across the land
Brought on by the hollow men who did not understand
That for centuries our forefathers have fought and often died
To keep themselves unto themselves, to fight the rising tide
That if in the smallest battles we surrender to the state
We enter in a darkness whence we never shall escape
When they raise their hands up our lives to possess
To know our souls, to drag us down, we’ll resist

Watt Tyler led the people in 1381
To meet the king at Smithfield to issue this demand
That Winchester’s should be the only law across the land
The law of old King Alfred’s time of free and honest men
‘Cause the people then they understood what we have since forgot
That the government will only work for its own benefit
And I’d rather stand up naked against the elements alone
Than give the hollow men the right to enter in my home
When they raise their hands up our lives to possess
To know our souls, to drag us down, we’ll resist

Stand up, sons of liberty, and fight for what you own
Stand up, sons of liberty, and fight, fight for your homes
Stand up, sons of liberty, and fight for what you own
Stand up, sons of liberty, and fight, fight for your homes
Stand up sons of liberty, and fight for what you own
Stand up sons of liberty, and fight, fight for your homes
Stand up sons of liberty, and fight for what you own
Stand up sons of liberty, and fight, fight for your homes
So if ever a man should ask you for your business or your name
Tell him to go and [screw] himself, tell his friends to do the same
‘Cause a man who’d trade his liberty for a safe and dreamless sleep
Doesn’t deserve the both of them and neither shall he keep!
