The Lyrics

Check out this link: www.savetheinternet.com/
This albatross
Common sense lost
Police state is closer
The networks cross the earth but they're losing their worth
Outcast civil rights
Corporate litter
Takes the reins
Tries to filter everything
We should know who they're bidding for
It's high time to just even the score

They'd sooner increase layoffs
Than give us a listen
How easy they try to end all this
The internet's free

It's time to face it
This fire they're makin'
Beat back all of these corporate whores
Call up both of your rich senators

We know the cost
And the loss
If net freedom tanks
They'll spread across the gloom,
End the internet boom
And we'll know who to thank
Peer-to-peer
Disappears
Sharing files needs backing
Net needs reform
But elites
Undermine with tracking

They'd sooner increase layoffs
Than give us a listen
How easy they try to end all this
The internet's free

It's time to face it
This fire they're makin'
Beat back all of these corporate whores
Call up both of your rich senators

This albatross
Common sense lost the freethought it requires
It blew in the face of
Information
Net controlled by liars
Script clowns
Layed this all out
Watch them as they break it
Bandwidth torn and naked
From this fire they're makin'

Well...

They'd sooner increase layoffs
Than give us a listen
How easy they try to end all this
The internet's free

[3x]
It's time to face it
This fire they're makin'
Beat back all of these corporate whores
Call up both of your rich senators
