a reaction to an oppressive government

lyrics

I can't see why you would even
Imagine that?
You've got rifles on parade
but we're making a stand.
We got everything we asked for
but we still have demands.
We've got love and everything
you don't understand.
We take part. You get fractions.
We take heart. You get factions.
The bridge ices over before the road.
If you tightening up my belt
you better loosen my load.
If you're taking all my money
you better hit the road.
We're gonna fly, high now.
If you're winding all the wind
you better spin some new yarns.
Because your fabic is a tonic
of economic harm.
Polling integrity
is transit to the farm.
We take feet, you get inches.
We take miles you get measures.
Your bayonets are fixed
but ideas are broke.
Your religion is a mirror
that just went up in smoke.
You always laugh along,
but you never get the joke.
We've got memory, morality
and access to the law.
We make history and art
and justice for us all.
We have words of inspiration
but we don't afford a god.
We take part. You get fractions.
We take heart. You get factions.
the civil disobedience is
carried through the street.
It's adopted by the tide that's
lost on its' feet.
Oh the tin of the drum
dances on with the beat.
We're gonna fly, high now.
You got products everywhere
so you're not all alone.
You're prophet's in the air.
So you can't call on the phone.
We are dancing to the beat of
the drums with your bones.
We take feet, you get inches.
We take miles you get measures.
Your bayonets are fixed
but ideas are broke.
Your religion is a mirror
that just went up in smoke.
You always laugh along,
but you never get the joke.

about

illicitizen New York, New York

Illicitizen are a varied mix of thought provoking lyrics, melodic bass grooves and spikey guitars. Without fail the duo is noted for exposing norm violating rhythms and lyrical eccentricities. The constants are dramatic and demonstrative vocals and a stimulating bass beat. ... more
