The Lyrics

We met as pilgrims
Inside the phone lines
We now are prisoners
For would-be high crimes
And what we've done
Was once alright
But now our priveledges are under the knife.

CDs in plastic
With countless verses
Now stars are spastic
And shouting curses
'Cause they learned fast
'Bout sharing sites
And all the downloads made their sales figures tight.

There is no storefront
With that, they can't cope.
'Please buy our CD'
To that we say, 'Nope.'
Free MP3s
CD-rewrites
We'll all be downloading with all of our might.

Back in the old days
This issue escaped
Nobody cared much
When we would dub tapes
But now it's wrong!
How is that right?
We look at Hilary Rosen
The path that she's chosen
There's no way that she'll win the fight

(chorus)
Because we all download together!
That's right, we all download together!
Yes, we will all download together!

Remember Limewire?
Remember Napster?
They changed the internet
Forever after
and who is wrong,
and who is right?
Just ask the people who keep using the sites...

We hold the cash
in the palms of our hands
They wish to fight
And the fight, seems to last as long as

People
Keep 'stealing' music
No way to stop them
They'll always use it
'Cause they are sharp!
As sharp as knives!
They hear the hum of their modems
There's no way to hold 'em!
The peer-to-peer sites will all thrive!

(repeat chorus)
Because we all download together!
That's right, we all download together!
Yes, we will all download together!
