Down at the station
Impatiently waiting
To be thrown in a cage
Hungry and naked
Bleeding and nameless
Broken piece of a chain
Don’t know what I’m in for
But I’ll show you disorder
Call a cop by his name

Hey you
Watch me catch fire

Well they gave you a number
With hundreds of others
Then they came from behind
They called out no warning
And sprayed you with poison
And the gas made you blind
Packed into boxes
Shipped to a dungeon
To a laugh and a cry

Hey you
Watch me catch fire

Hey, don’t believe the news tonight
It ain’t a party for your rights
Cause I can see the hotel lights
Their silhouettes are singing:
“Fall down to the rising of wine.”

Now when they come to party
They wall up the city
And they board up the stores
They come in on horses
And crack up your faces
Then give the report
With jails over-spillin’,
You’re gonna spend millions
Fighting this war

Hey you
Watch me catch fire

Fall down to the rising of wine.

We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
