The Lyrics

This parody was not written with Amiright in mind, but I'll post it here as a service to anyone who needs an excuse to listen to the original song from the parody movie "This is Spinal Tap". Beyond that it's about something very sad that happened in Sweden on July 18, a blogquake uprising never seen before has even started to call it a coup, when our government gave the FRA (think NSA or MI5) the right to wiretap and copy absolutely everything digital, every online page visited, every search phrase, every download, every mail sent or received, every chat, every SMS, every IP-phone call or answer, every normal phone call, every bank transfer, every digital receipt, everything you can think of, everyone, everywhere, all the time, in every way possible and without no regard to if the listened to are or has ever been suspected for anything at all. In fact the FRA will don't even really have to tap for it, internet providers are to be obliged to send them copies and logs of absolutely everything as above. Personal freedom just went out the window and neutral political analysts have already concluded that as a law it's the most suppressive against individual integrity that has ever been passed anywhere ever, not even the Soviet Union government during the cold war legislated a right to intrusion in their citizens' lives on this level, they may have done worse in practise with the technology available back then, but they didn't give themselves the right to in the book of law.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here:

Listen, to what the Swedish people say
Listen, it's what they do at F-R-A

Listen, it's made the law but was a coup
Listen, they can now listen in on you

Swedish people - told a lie
Swedish people - misapplied

Is it too late? (Nooo!)
Is it too late?

Listen, it's like an online third degree
Listen, a Nineteen Eighty-Four decree

Listen, to all the Swedes do F-R-A
Listen, to our democracy get slayed
