The Lyrics

This is a song about the so called "Speech Codes" on campus that make it a suspendable offense to call homosexuality immoral. I'm waiting for them to wheel in the telescreens
By last breath of the four freedoms blow
Better shut your mouths
The sound of silence knocks at your dorm
Lock up your rights and opinions now
It's time to wield the same
For now you've got some company

The speech codes are drawing nearer
On leftist steeds the ride
They've come to take your rights
On over the campus right
With the speech codes ride
Or you will be expelled

You've been lied to since the day you were born
Your thoughts have all been planned
The members of the enlightened rides
A rightwing once a rightwing twice
No need for expression now
Cause now you've got to change your entire life

The speech codes are drawing nearer
On leftist steeds the ride
They've come to take your rights
On over the campus right
With the speech codes ride
Or you will be expelled

Gays
Have more rights than you
Your religion is so wrong
Feminists
Men's rights they have torn through
Withered their you know what's
Discrimination
Is what they've had to endure and
what they'll put you through
FIRE
Deliverance for you for sure
You really need to sue

So gather up young right wings now
And saddle up our steeds
Suing hordes
With FIRE's Swords
Now is the death of oppression
Swing Lady Freedom's hammer down
Safely inside life, liberty and, pursuit

The speech codes are drawing nearer
On leftist steeds the ride
They've come to take your rights
On over the campus right
With the speech codes ride
Or you will be expelled
If you or anyone you know has fallen victim to this Orwellian thought control then you can get help from FIRE (www.thefire.org)

534. And here’s something to contemplate: If you’re at one of your country’s places of HIGHER learning, and still in public can’t express your more rigid ideas and ideals (whatever they might be, left- or rightist) in phrasing sophisticated enough to work around what happens to be the restricting ”Speech Code” at the moment (such are as fluctuant as ”bullshit bingo” anyway) and keep you out of trouble, do you really belong on that level of learning anyway, or are you still unprepared?

Congratulations for only the 2nd parody of this song. Your pacing and rhyming are a little off here, average funny. 434.

The speech codes mean I can't express those ideas PERIOD. I can't even say I think homo sexuality is immoral, which is a very, very common belife in most Judeo-Christain cultures. The only way I could say that was if I was stadning in a certain area. Just remember what communists said: "We only need one generation of children" Colleges claim to be tolernt to other cultures but not J/C, and here's somthing to think about, the Ministry of Truth I mean... Equity office at my school deals with afirmitve action, how is that Equity?

Hey, K-1 at least he's using the SPELL checker now...for the parody submission, anyway...that's real progress for this guy. Congratulations on that 'G'...it does at least LOOK better than your prior postings have...now as to the "thought expression" issue...well, I don't know...practice at actual thinking would be a start...DKTOS, not voting ~ ~ ~

I'm not going to dignify that with a response

See, you're learning...hey, I DID notice that the spelling in the parody was correct...after all, you WEREN'T doing that previously...so whether I think your ideas have any merit or not I will give you credit where it seems appropriate...
