Requiem for Dissent
Oratory of hope and glory, a whisper and a rhyme An effigy, a soldier out of time Citizen and patriot, you can't be far behind The funeral is weighting heavy on your mind [Chorus:] Requiem Bring the dissident from slumber Requiem Raise the rebel from his grave Requiem Sound the revolution's thunder A monumental blunder averted and betrayed Dig around the cemetery, a record of the day Friends and neighbors in stages of decay But the saddest thing of all eludes discovery The stimulus of this somber ceremony [Chorus] The sanctimonious minions - how they grovel at the feet Authority is populist deceit Pity yet another casualty's demoralized decline Just a victim of irrational design Requiem Requiem Requiem Bring the dissident from slumber Requiem Raise the rebel from its grave Requiem Sound the revolution's thunder A monumental blunder averted and betrayed
