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

Share and Enjoy

This song was created for Game of Bands round 119 : "Protest Songs"

Lyrics:

I saw the picture that you shared
With the people who already cared
On a friend list controlled by you
Safe from dissenting points of view

Would you go out and knock on doors
Of people whose views differ from yours?
Are you really brave enough to find
A way to change other people's minds?

You've got to stand up [pause] you've got to sing
You've got to do anything
To make the people at the top
Get scared of what will happen when the hammer drops

It's easy to think that you engage
When you throw words at a pointless web page
There's a world made of bricks and streets
Full of people who don't care for your fucking tweets

You've got to stand up, you've got to sing
You've got to do anything
To make the people at the top
Get scared of what will happen when the hammer drops

[Vox by /u/h2g2_researcher]
In days of old the lords looked out for common folk
But it got lost along the line; and now that system's broke
The way today is oligarchs are parked in an ivory tower
Addicted to wealth because from wealth comes power
Addicted to power because of how they can abuse it
They'll never give a groat about our vote if we never use it
The only time the super-rich will give a shit about us relatively poor
Is when we're loud and out in numbers that they can't ignore.
So for all the inequality and [word deleted] all our systems flaws
Get our hands dirty, give our times to a cause
Because no-one in power ever had their world shook
By an angry song you shared on facebook.

You've got to stand up, you've got to sing
You've got to do anything
To make the people at the top
Get scared of what will happen when the hammer drops
[Exit]
