While your eyes watch here’s something for your ears to listen. A track released by Amsterdam band MyBaby, celebrating the anti government protests around the world:
Take it as a warning,
Parliament is burning, leaders
Take it as a warning
Trapped in the corner, its a warning
Fake leaders, it’s is a warning
Well, who are these once with there crazy eyes?
It must be of children, tired of the lies
Well, our only weapon is our song and dance
Your power is fading and we’re taking a stand
Who’s these children screeming “pay back”!
It must be time for a surprise attack
Who are these children all des-illusioned?
It must be the children of the REVOLUTION
Who’s that young girl with her wolf pack?
It must be time for the big payback
Who’s these childeren all dressed in red?
It must be the children that feel mislead
