Burned up burned out run down and tiered of giving a shit
'Cause what's the point in having all these feelings if I never act on it
And I couldn't tell you what would be right but all I see is wrong
And without that Definite aim how can we move on

If freedom is the end, then freedom must be out means
You can't enslave people in order to set them free
So I'll keep living free, hoping it catches on
But lately it seems nobodies listening and I'm on my own

Then Huey said:
You can jail a revolutionary, but you can't jail the revolution
There will be no prison which can hold our movement down

Then Huey said:
You can jail a revolutionary, but you can't jail the revolution
There will be no prison which can hold our movement down

Shown up, thrown out, torn down their laws, lies and politics
Because order, doesn't need power in order to exist
Order isn't borders, order isn't maintained by the state
And I think perhaps freedom and order could cohabitate

I wouldn't trust in a revolution that happened in just one day
I wouldn't trust in a revolution lead by just one man
Because revolution's in your hearts and your minds, it's not on the street
And to me it seems the destiny of revolutionaries is to become what they defeat.

But then Huey said:
You can jail a revolutionary, but you can't jail the revolution
There will be no prison which can hold our movement down

Then Huey said:
You can jail a revolutionary, but you can't jail the revolution
There will be no prison which can hold our movement down

Then Huey said:
You can jail a revolutionary, but you can't jail the revolution
There will be no prison which can hold our movement down
