LYRICS

VERSE 1:

Do you know what that anarchist flag means?

The diagonal black and red?

Red’s for the toilers’ blood spilt struggling

Black’s for the soil stolen from them

BRIDGE 1:

And when that red turns into green

Then we’ll know that we are free

VERSE 2:

Do you know why we wear masks at marches?

It ain’t just so that our names aren’t known

It’s the symbol of the invisible masses

Never shown by the spectacle

BRIDGE 2:

And when those faces can be seen

Then we’ll know that we are free

CHORUS:

What if one day there was a revolution?

What kind of world would you want to see?

Would it be one where all are equal?

Would it be one where all are free?

Well then we’ve got something in common

Because we want the same as you

So let us share our dreams together

And let us fight together too

MIDDLE:

And did you know you’re freedom is bound with ours?

That’s why it’s called collectivism, coz we share more than our scars

We share an interest in growing this new world in our hearts

So where will you stand when the last war starts?

VERSE 3:

Do you know about our system of government?

How it’s controlled by the rich?

The State protects them with it’s violence

That’s why we want to destroy it

BRIDGE 3:

And when there’s no more hierarchies

Then we’ll know that we are free

(CHORUS)

FINAL CHORUS:

Let’s sing some songs about the revolution

To help to keep our spirits high

And let us raise our red and black flags

See if the wind will make them fly

You know we’ve got something in common

Because we’re not afraid to dream

And when we share our dreams together

They’re not as crazy as they seem
