We live in changing times
When certain thoughts are now a crime
Power flows through an evil pen
And freedom's light in growing dim
One day if suddenly, I'm forced to take my leave
Will you still carry on, with the things that we believe?
One day if suddenly, they take my life away
Will you still be fighting to win a bright new day?
The people who've stood against us
They seem to be above the law
With the power to listen into private moments in our
And the power to come kick down your door
Our strength has come from ideals many years' old
A strength that has survived within our blood
A strength our foe has recognised, and sworn to drag it
He wants to drag our people through the mud
