Lyrics
("Remember, remember the 5th of November, the gunpowder, treason and plot. I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.")

("The truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country.")

Leviathan rises
From the ocean of our fear
Falling to our knees we cower
Bequeathing to this edifice
A monopoly of force
This parasitic beast is drunk with power

We've let our fears destroy
Our dignity and freedom
And turned our backs on all
The principles we once held dear

("How did this happen? Who's to blame?
If you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.")

Behemoth rises
From the soils of jealousy
Equality enforced on pain of death
Mistaking mankind's progress
For a dialectic truth
And smothering the spirit that's behind it

From each according to ability we'll give away
To each according to his need
Until the gears grind to dust

Cast off the chains we've made
And refuse to dig our graves
Stand up, the lives we save
Will be our own

Reclaiming liberty
We'll starve the beast

("Fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives.")

We've let our fears destroy
Our dignity and freedom
And placed ourselves beneath the heel
Of our own entitlement

Cast off the chains we've made
And refuse to dig our graves
Stand up, the lives we save
Will be our own

("Tiananmen Square, June, 1989. In the wake of a b_____ crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators, one solitary man defied the awesome power of the Chinese state.")

("Together we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot.")
