Fuck

TTTO “Companion” by Vixy & Tony, from “Thirteen”

One upon a time, there was an ordinary word
Narrow little mindsets with a narrow view to hold
They feared it, and misunderstood
So they made a law that night, took it from us for good
You can feel the burning of the books
You can feel the whispers, the dirty little looks
My life will never be the same
Since that stupid law from fascists came

When we made a crime of that word (Crime of thought and crime of speech)
When we made a crime of that word (As stupid values they all preach)
When we made a crime of that word (Narrow minds and vanity)
When we made a crime of that word (We destroyed humanity)

With a law in hand and a gleeful grin
You have let the stupid fascists in
When we say that word, we won’t be free
They’ll lock us up, and throw away the key

It was the door to all the books they burn
It was too dangerous that harmful word to learn
And safe euphemisms, the meanings they steal
If it’s never been done, you ask why not
Was it undemocratic? You just forgot
You’re the universe own vengeful sword
As you cut it, a weapon of the lord

When we made a crime of this word (Crime that has no victim hurt)
When we made a crime of this word (Say the word, it’s red alert)
When we made a crime of this word (Make the word a mystery)
When we made a crime of this word (Arguing with history)

With a law in hand and a gleeful grin
You have let the stupid fascists in
When we say that word, we won’t be free
They’ll lock us up, and throw away the key

You’re arrogant and troublesome, impetuous and vain
You’ve closed your mind and don’t care when we explain
You’re so sure that you are right, and so drunk now with power
You pulled us
To the side
Made us cower

No hope for the future, we look to our past
Without free speech, free thought can’t hope to last
They laughed at our words, and made legal their cruel ban
The spiral downward, it only has began
And when the cops are at the door
No need to fear them anymore
They’ll break down the door and step on through
Use the maiden of iron, and use the cruel thumb-screw

When we made a crime of this word (Free speech has now gone away)
When we made a crime of this word (Not all thoughts we can now say)
When we made a crime of this word (We can’t say that we’re not free)
When we made a crime of this word (We can’t say, and we can’t be)

With a law in hand and a gleeful grin
You have let the stupid fascists in
When we say that word, we won’t be free
They’ll lock us up, and throw away the key

We made a crime of this word (Anything is possible)
We made a crime of this word (Anything is possible)
