Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Sea of Information

This song was created for Game of Bands round 129 : "Sea Shanties"

Lyrics:

Let us speak the name
of a hero
of a hacktivist
let us remember a pirate
with a cause
to help us
and he died for it

A reddit guy but much more
than that
for us

We need open access to data
to the scholars
to the facts
to protect us from the lies
to make the world
a better place

Let us speak the name
of Aaron Swartz
redditor
and activist
and a pirate
of the internet
for us
and the rest
to make the world
a better place
and he died for it

Gave us DeadDrop
to protect them
and give anonymity
for the cause
of information
to take down
corruption

Let us speak the name
of Aaron
hacktivist
redditor
a son
who cared
about information
and a pirate
all the same
and he died for it
for the cause

Let us speak the name
of a pirate
who for us
and all men and women
took a stand
and died for it
[Exit]
