lyrics

Gravity can bind confusion,
There's weight in workers.
If the world collapsed upon itself,
The signal's strong.

Graffiti on the GreatWall gazing;
And on my fan-page…
My one good eye is trained upon the sun,
We're still logged on…

The cradle starts to rock.
The dreidel spins and stops.
The tables turn and lock.
The system stalls, then starts….

I, Revolution!
What rough beast awakes tonight!
I hear the movement!
A billion limbs, slow to rise!
Jordan's banks will burn tonight!

If Zuckerburg can go to China
Upon a Trojan horse,
Like Gulliver the plans he wrought revolt,
The dissent grows.

Could Horus have inspired such power?
Would Christ have fled?
A man without a hope, an empty purse,
Who turns to fire...

The cradle starts to rock.
The dreidel spins and stops.
The tables turn and lock.
The system stalls, then starts….

I, Revolution!
What rough beast awakes tonight!
I hear the movement!
A billion limbs, slow to rise!
Jordan's banks will burn tonight!
