Oratory of hope and glory, a whisper and a rhyme
An effigy, a soldier out of time
Citizen and patriot, you can't be far behind
The funeral is weighting heavy on your mind

[Chorus:]
Requiem
Bring the dissident from slumber
Requiem
Raise the rebel from his grave
Requiem
Sound the revolution's thunder
A monumental blunder averted and betrayed

Dig around the cemetery, a record of the day
Friends and neighbors in stages of decay
But the saddest thing of all eludes discovery
The stimulus of this somber ceremony

[Chorus]

The sanctimonious minions - how they grovel at the feet
Authority is populist deceit
Pity yet another casualty's demoralized decline
Just a victim of irrational design

Requiem
Requiem
Requiem

Bring the dissident from slumber
Requiem
Raise the rebel from its grave
Requiem
Sound the revolution's thunder
A monumental blunder averted and betrayed
