เนื้อเพลง flobots – we are winning


[speaking part:]
rival gangsters sit down to plan an after school program.
a religious fanatic posts footage of an interfaith service project.
a group of teenage boys watches a video of a father playing catch with his son.
an adult film star paints thumbnail portraits of elderly couples fully clothed an smiling.
a record executive records a demo of his apology.
a policeman makes reverse 911 calls instructing residents to take to the streets.
a patriarch reports for duty.
she’s wearing an orange jumpsuit and holding a picket sign.
she’s ashamed of her birthplace, but retreat is not an option.

women and children
front line
log on
tune in
stand and be counted, wounded, stationed
in the belly of the vulture watch your back
theres no civilians
women, children
front line listen
consider this a distant early warning
the fires imminent
pollution gathering dust particles
funneling through smokestacks, airways, bandwidth
this information tube fed
check the labels
delete the virus
alert the m-sses.

[speaking part:]
b-tterfly wing cross wings. send black hawks toward hurricane survivors.
roses sprout from empty lots and sidewalk cracks.
pacifist gorillas move undetected through concrete jungles.
new forms are beginning to take shape.
once occupied minds are activating.
people are waking up!
the insurgency is alive and well.

rise of the flobots
portrait of
the new american insurgent
rattle and shake the foundations of the world order
-ssembly line incent, resist, refuse
inform, create
direct loved one’s to the trenches
suit up forge rubble into fortress’s
plaster, cloth, aluminum
broken porcelain
rusted platinum
burn blood stains from decompressed diamonds
hammer the battle cry into braille studded armor.

[speaking part:]
we are building up a new world.
do not sit idly by.
do not remain neutral.
do not rely on this broadcast alone.
we are only as strong as our signal.
there is a war going on for your mind.
if you are thinking, you are winning.
resistance is victory.
defeat is impossible.
your weapons are already in hand.
reach within you and find the means by which to gain your freedom.
fight with tools.
your fate, and that of everyone you know
depends on it.
