LYRICS

VERSE 1:

I told a cop that I was proud to be an Anarchist

As I was locked to a plastic fence

Outside a factory making war machinery

Sun in my eyes as they took my friends

CHORUS 1:

Cos I remembered the feeling on that night

So ecstatic and so liberating

Windows smashing, barricades and setting things alight

And even then we almost got away

VERSE 2:

Well they have beaten me, strangled and imprisoned me

And what is worse they have smiled and laughed

They have molested, raped and murdered cold-bloodedly

And brought a coldness to my heart

CHORUS 2:

But I remember the feeling on that night

Tired, bruised and crazy in my cell

I whispered to myself “they are the terrorists”

And I cackled like a demon out of hell

MIDDLE:

And I remember the feeling that next morning

Of comradeship and cigarettes and rage

Of solitude and promising myself to Anarchy

And to fighting them until my dying days

VERSE 3:

The years have passed now but still I am struggling

And ever purer grows my hate

But I’m a happy man and everything is better now

My head is high and my back is straight

CHORUS 3:

Cos I remember the feeling every night

I close my eyes and see the colour of my flag

And I know their bright blue flashing lights

Could never reach as far as all that Black
