Lyrics

So I submit you’ve failed us twice
Once is for your brothers
One is for your brothers
And the second’s for your sons
Isolation, mis-education
And for very clever there is looming liquidation
You put the light of Socialism high up on a shelf
And in effect prevented it from spreading somewhere else
What have you done? What do you say
Top those who’ve died along the way?
Should you tell them that they’ve died in vain?
Now is when we should all be moving forward
But instead you’re falling back
Don’t stop now when we’re almost up the mountain
Though the view here mighty seem nice
So I submit you’ve failed us twice
Once is for your brothers
One is for your brothers
And the second’s for your sons
Expatriate one hundred and then shoot a thousand more
Expel the opposition to your centrist Thermidor
The rudeness and disloyalty about which Lenin spoke
Have now become the cords that are wrapped around your throats
What have you done? What do you say
Top those who’ve died along the way?
Should you tell them that they’ve died in vain?
Now is when we should all be moving forward
But instead you’re falling back
Don’t stop now when we’re almost up the mountain
Though the view here mighty seem nice
So I submit you’ve failed us twice
Once is for your brothers
One is for your brothers
And the second’s for your sons
Now is when we should all be moving forward
But instead you’re falling back
Don’t stop now when we’re almost up the mountain
Though the view here mighty seem nice
