heres a song that perfectly sums up my feelings on the matter:
its by a band called five knuckle, and you can play it at www.myspace.com/fiveknuckle
best probably to listen to it reading the lyrics as unless you are used to the guys vocal style, you wont understand much!
People not numbers
No I didnt vote, I didnt feel I had a choice,
I felt within my silence, lay my only voice,
Its not that im not interesting in politics,
Its just that im not interested in their politics
Sick of their lies and their policies
Their arrogance and their hypocrasies
Masters of rhetoric and dancing round questions,
I want some answers and decent suggestions
Not my vote, not my leader,
Not my choice, we are people not numbers.
The most powerful countries in the world have
the best damn government that money
can buy, its just my idea of a good government
is one that cant be bought.
No space, no place for us to roam,
Everything is private, all the land is owned.
We have freedom of assembly until we assemble,
We have freedom of speech until we speak,
And if you dont do exactly as they say,
Well then you gotta answer to the police.
Debating our lives as if playing a game,
They can disperse the riot but the struggle remains
Its all about the money, its all about the money,
Its all about the money, we are people not numbers!
this is my favorate band btw, and the other songs there are fantastic - especially not in my name!
