Lyrics
Cats like me and you
Have got laws
That they adhere to
Laws outside the laws
As laid down
By those we don't subscribe to
The world is getting stranger
But we'll never lose heart
We can't just wait for the
Old guard to die
Before we can
Make a new start

Bring on the revolution
(keep the pressure on)
I want to die for something
Bring on the revolution
I want to die for something
Bring on the revolution
I want to die for something
Bring on the revolution
I don't want to die for nothing

For every freedom fighter
I want to hold on tighter
To the hope and will you gave
You were the brave
You were the brave
And one day
When I hear your children sing
Freedom will ring
Freedom!

When we watch the children play
Remember
How the privileged classes grew
And from this day
We set out
To undo what won't undo
Looking for the grand
In the minute
Every breath justifies
Every step that we take
To remove what the powers that be
Can't prove
And the children will
Understand why

Bring on the revolution
(keep the pressure on)
I want to die for something
Bring on the revolution
I want to die for something
Bring on the revolution
I don't want to die for nothing
Bring on the revolution
I want to die for something
