    ... the next revolution will do nothing ... [gcs]

    Why after all these millennia does this hate persist
    Every god, every prophet, has come and gone
    Promised streets of gold
    Solitude, food for the hungry
    False hope, where the meek shall inherit the earth
    Why, do we keep believing in ghosts

    How does it always seem to catch our ear
    These politicians every year
    It’s like a barrage of bullets flying
    Pigs in the air, floating
    Making campaigns on the statues of left and right
    Where only a few have the ability to meld into the middle
    And then it seems as though
    They are the worst, kind of human beings
    As humans, we cling to this false sense of hope
    And change, never fucking comes

    What would happen if there were no one to elect
    Where would we expand our time and energies
    When would we finally figure out
    That we are the only ones that should be telling ourselves
    Right from wrong

    Slip and fall, fall off the edge
    We don’t need your company
    We don’t need your weapons
    We don’t need your social fixes
    Plundered by those in competition on how to rule
    Over fiat contributions
    That never get to the ones whom they were designated
    To help, to affix social remedies
    The lined pockets fill up
    And we are sick and tired of it all

    Falter again, this time we will express our voice
    Without being beat down
    Without corporate bought police forces
    Welding military gear, batons, water cannons
    Come next time, the thing they fear most
    Won’t be a fucking revolution
    It will just be us - stopping the turning wheel
    And we will just stay at home
    Do nothing
    Not one fucking thing

    So send all your armies to the doors of our home
    Try to make us work for the privilege of working
    Come on bitch!
    Send your riot police to our windows, with tear gas
    Break our glass, but we will be resolved
    As you cut the electricity off
    As the phones, cable and internet become weapons of mass destruction
    Keep fucking with us
    And eventually
    We won’t lift a motherfucking finger
    Eventually
    We’ll kill you off - by doing nothing
