lyrics

so here i am another freedom fighter behind the bars
i guess i had it coming so you all can hold your applause
stood for a cause and i executed everything perfect
yes it was worth it cause my program went and fulfilled its purpose
i went and put it in the public domain
and now the next generation of hackers can all know my name
and they can build on what i created and make it their own
and maybe modify the code so that it works with a drone

im here alone in my cell trying to pass the time faster
trying to figure a way out of this here blasted disaster
my lawyer is incompetent my judge is a moron
ex girlfriends on the outside probably getting her score on
see a snitch is always someone who is close to your brain
so sometimes it can be better to just stay in your lane
but you know how good she was at playing all of those games
so again i had it coming i belong in these chains

recent events probably couldve been prevented
if enough people stood up to the Syndicate forget it
but monopolies became common place every city every state
because they wanted lower rates
and the politicians lined their pockets passing the laws
that made it possible for Syndicates to sink in their claws
and they wont bite the hand that feeds them cuz the dollars important
they need it for those little signs on lawns with cute little portraits

hail corporate i wont see those guys in this jail
because every single one of them has golfed with the mayor
its not what you know its who you know and who you pay off
and when your bottom line is hurting its just who you lay off
san secuestro aint no different its just one of the millions
where the rules play a bit different for us lowly civilians
but resigning to conclusions like that hurt the morale
let me spit a little bit of rationale

wasted intelligence
probably the worst thing ever done with human development
either not using it or using it for dubious tasks
or you go and dumb it down you go and put on a mask
a disservice to your ancestors who held down the past
so that you could be on earth here and now having a blast
so cop a trade get a hobby try and master a craft
because the world always need experts in the scientist caste

even though my craft might have got me detained
i can make an impact going against the grain
and that might be the way you make your mark on the planet
because you just might do things different and they wont understand it
but authority is malleable so is convention
if you dont question what is going on this dimension
you might find yourself in my shoes for a lesser offense
because they made it ALL illegal on a stupid pretense

so question everything - dont accept things out of tradition
the only limitation that you have is your own ambition
and if you want to change your world you have to actually act
theres no like button to click to make a real life impact
knowledge and wisdom are the greatest weapons people can wield
the computer and the internets your sword and your shield
so protect em with ferocity and dont allow my prophecy
to ever reach completion cause it would be an atrocity

thats all the story that i got for you now
i really thank you all for listening and youve been a great crowd
i should probably start my cases appeal
or at the very least decide what i want for my last meal
i will probably be here lounging about
so if you wanna hear my story again just give a shout
flip the cassette over start spinning the wheels
to replay introducing neals
