The Right to Revolution

In the riot shield's reflection the citizens are framed.
San Francisco's under siege tonight.
We took downtown and we're gonna take the bridge
To protest a war that isn't right.

CNN loops the footage of rocks and anarchists;
report two thousand arrests.
But what about the streets we took peacefully?
Only police took notice of this.

A game of cat and mouse with the police
Who counter respond and block off the streets.
But they can't be everywhere.

Some wore suits and some wore boots,
But dismay was our uniform
And a belief in a new world

...But the order that they place before us
As I watch my friends get hauled onto a bus;
Taken to a holding cell.

But we keep arriving to sever an artery of commerce and monopoly.
No business as usual today.

Well we know our rights and we know yours too and
We know what policy allows you to do
And you can't treat us this way.

In tyranny and inefficiency
Refuse to pledge allegiance.
And believe in another way.
