Oh, were you not told
Do you not know
Everything around you is being sold
Do you not care?
Were you not there?
Everybody else was going spare
What's yours and mine
Does this escape you all the time?
Sometimes I wish
Protesting was sexy on a Saturday night

So would you ever, would you ever
Go down, down, down, down
Fight, fight, point and stand
Point and stand and fight
Over here
Over there
Over here
Every-f*cking-where

I just don't know
Who's in control
Please, no, don't say
It could go either way

It's militant
Not military
See we welcome everybody
We're not even scary
I'm a big fan
Of the local library
I just read a book
But that's another story

Yours and mine
They get mixed up all of the time
I wish sometimes
Protesting was sexy on a Saturday night

So would you ever, would you ever
Go down, down, down, down
Fight, fight, point and stand
Point and stand and fight
Over here
Over there
Over here
Every-f*cking-where

I'll never be
I'll never see
I'll never be
What you want me to be

I just don't know
Who's in control
Please, no, don't say
It could go either way

Over here
Over there
Over here
Every-f*cking-where

Over here
Over there
Over here
Every-f*cking-where

I just don't know
Who's in control
Please, no, don't say
It could go either way
