lyrics

gotta make our voice heard
because the masters of words
don't want a chorus

gotta make our mind known
so all the swine on the throne
can't ignore us

with a cuff or a belt or a velvet fist
round our throat
may the will resist

we gotta make our voice heard
because the masters of words
don't want a chorus

gotta capture the light
from all the pastors of lies
get back to nature

gotta hold our head high
stare through a hole in the sky
into the future

under moon or a star or the southern cross
round our soul
may the self be lost

we gotta make our voice heard
because the masters of words
don't want a chorus

when we dream
a drop of rain
when we scream
a hurricane

gotta sing while we slave
because the masters of trade
won't employ us

gotta stand on our feet
so all the swine in the street
won't destroy us

with a stone or a brick or the new soft shoe
on our lips
may our song be true

we gotta make our voice heard
because the masters of words
don't want a chorus

when we dream
a drop of rain
when we scream
a hurricane
