about

Arundhati Roy wrote ‘The God of Small Things’. Her quote: ‘The only dream worth having is to dream that you’ll live while you’re alive and die only when you’re dead’ feels kind of important

lyrics

First the guns the tanks the machinery
Of state oppression control completely
And then one voice, one light in the darkness
Instantly gone but replaced by a million
And swept by a tide of human emotion
The wall crashes down and oppression is broken

Here’s to the cause
To revolution to freedom
It’s all over the news
It’s almost like being there
Alongside them

Freedom the cry
Legion the tide
Legion we stand side by side

Legion we stand
Triumphant in glory
She took both my hands
Look closer to home for the story

Freedom the dream
If you would be free
The god of small things holds the key

There’s only one dream
Worth having she said
Only one dream she said
The dream is to live
While you are alive
And only to die when you’re dead

Do what you do, do what’s expected
Don’t shake the foundations of all you’ve erected
And don’t stand out from the crowd
Don’t risk what you’ve got for what beats in your heart
And don’t fly too close to the sun
You never were meant to be some kind of chosen one

Follow the crowd
Choose safety, choose easy
Lose all you are meant to be
Follow the crowd

Legion you stand
Triumphant in glory
The comfort of crowds
The price everything you are meant to be

Freedom the cry
The freedom to fly
The freedom to live till you die
There’s only one dream
Worth having she said
Only one dream she said
The dream is to live
While you are alive
And only to die when you’re dead
Freedom the cry
The freedom to fly
The freedom to live till you die
She took both my hands
