all rise for the rational anthem lyrics – dillinger four

never been safe to live in contrast
they’re p*ssing out muzzles with the gas masks
this one’s for you and all you’ve done
and what we will become
when they tear out your throat
because you’re singing different notes

they call it the “new macarthyism”
the only thing that’s new
is the name it’s coming from
just leave your opinions at the door
they’re not welcome anymore
extinguish the light in your mind so they can get some sleep

less is never more
hear them knocking at your door
take one for the team
bury what you think
save yourself now
let ideology sink
hypocrisy surrounds
say what you want
don’t say it out loud

it’s not as simple as the last time
but everybody suffers
when we accept the party line
just simple arguments
now accusations of dissent
a statement of fact
now there’s no chance
to turn your back

less is never more
hear them knocking at your door
take one for the team
bury what you think
save yourself now
let ideology sink
hypocrisy surrounds
say what you want
don’t say it out loud

walking a tight rope
so close to falling down
you take a wrong step
you’re tumbling to the ground
we’ve lost our senses
and we are falling down

walking a tight rope
so close to falling down
you take a wrong step
you’re tumbling to the ground
we’ve lost our senses
and we are falling down
