  • Head high, protest line
    "Freedom" scribbled on your sign
    Headline, New York Times
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    Hey, hey, just obey
    Your secret's safe with the NSA
    In God we trust or the CIA?
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    Yeah, we're standing on the edge of a revolution
    Revolution, revolution, revolution

    No, we won't give up, we won't go away
    'Cause we're not about to live in this mass delusion
    No, we don't wanna hear another word you say
    'Cause we know they're all depending on mass confusion
    No, we can't turn back, we can't turn away
    'Cause it's time we all relied on the last solution
    No, we won't lay down and accept this fate
    'Cause we're standing on the edge of a revolution

    Wall Street, common thief
    When they get caught they all go free
    A brand new yacht and a finders fee
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    Same shit, different day
    Can't keep fed if I can't get paid
    We'll all be dead if the shit don't change
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    Yeah, we're standing on the edge of a revolution
    Revolution, revolution, revolution

    No, we won't give up, we won't go away
    'Cause we're not about to live in this mass delusion
    No, we don't wanna hear another word you say
    'Cause we know they're all depending on mass confusion
    No, we can't turn back, we can't turn away
    'Cause it's time we all relied on the last solution
    No, we won't lay down and accept this fate
    'Cause we're standing on the edge of a revolution

    We'll all be dead if this shit don't change
    Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey

    What do we want? We want the change
    And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
    What do we want? We want the change
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    What do we want? We want change
    And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
    What do we want? We want the change
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    No, we won't give up, we won't go away
    'Cause we're not about to live in this mass delusion
    No, we don't wanna hear another word you say
    'Cause we know they're all depending on mass confusion
    No, we can't turn back, we can't turn away
    'Cause it's time we all relied on the last solution
    No, we won't lay down and accept this fate
    'Cause we're standing on the edge of a revolution

    What do we want? We want change
    And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
    What do we want? We want the change
    Standing on the edge of a revolution

    What do we want? We want change
    And how're we gonna get there? Revolution
    What do we want? We want the change
