Revolution

Album: Imaginary Enemy (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Bert McCracken (from Kerrang! magazine): "The final speech at the end of the 'Revolution' video is a section of President Eisenhower's farewell address on January 17, 1951, warning us about the military establishment and the influences it has on democracy. But I believe more importantly it was a call for an 'alert and knowledgeable citizenry, The key to any successful revolution will be an evolution of human consciousness. Information is key. We strongly suggest that you question everything you think you know."
