    Lyrics

    Can you hear it?
    Ear against the ground and you'll hear it
    I can tell a change when I hear it

    We are tigers
    Kings of jungles
    Trapped in cages
    We forget we once were free!

    And the average swain
    Would be contented in his chains
    Were it not for complainers like me

    Throw the book
    I'm up against it
    Up against the rules
    Bring the experts
    Up against them
    Up against the fools
    Bring on city hall
    I'm against them all

    Lamp of freedom

    No, you can't change
    Human nature
    Wheels of power
    Keep revolving endlessly
    With a fanatical faction
    A charismatic attraction
    There's a piece of that action for me

    Call the press
    I'm up against it
    Up against the flacks
    Bring the shrink
    I'm up against it
    Up against the quacks
    Revenuers
    Up against it
    Up against the tax
    Name some names
    And I'm up against them
    Bullies, big and small
    I'm against them all

    All we need is some vitality
    Like an, individuality
    But I guess they
    Make it all alone

    Bring the girls
    I'm up against them
    I'm up against their lips
    Bring the boys
    I'm up against them
    Up against their hips
    Bring the priest
    I'm up against him
    Up against that cross
    Bring the mob
    I'm up against it
    Up against the boss
    Bring the cops
    I'm up against it
    Up against the jaw
    Throw the book
    I'm up against it
    Up against the law

    Politicians, all, I'm against them
    Fascist lackeys all against the wall

    Fist of freedom
    Guns of freedom

    Bring the lackeys
    Up against it
    Up against the wall
    Bring the bishop
    Up against it
    Up against the wall
    Bring the chairman
    Up against it
    Up against the wall
    Put the general
    Up against it
    Up against the wall!
