lyrics

hey kids, what do you say?
we don't want to live in a surveillance state
hey kids, what can you do?
we can change the world and will before we’re through
hey kids, what do you say?
the most dangerous danger is being afraid
hey kids, what do you think?
more than alexander we need codepink

hey kids, what do you say?
we don’t want to live in a surveillance state
hey kids, explain it to me
if you want dignity you need privacy
hey kids, what do you say?
mom and dad, get off my back, get on the NSA’s
hey kids, is everyone calm?
mother, do you think that they will drop the bomb?

mom and dad are trying to figure me out
all my teachers are trying to figure me out
all my leaders are trying to figure me out
what i’m about
it’s freaking me out, it's freaking me out
what they're about, it's freaking me out

hey kids, what do you say?
we don't want to live in a surveillance state
hey kids, what can you do?
we can raise our voices if you’re too grown to
hey kids, what do you say?
we don’t need protection from the NSA
hey kids, what do you think?
this sounds like Wilsonian democracy

hey kids, what do you say?
we don’t want to live in a surveillance state
hey kids, explain it to me
freedom is essential for creativity
hey kids, what do you say?
we don't want to live in a surveillance state
hey kids, you’ve got the floor
we are here and we’re the ones we’ve been waiting for
