Lyrics

Chronic Citizens
by Greg Englesson

Hail to the east
Hail to the west
Hail to the right
Hail to the left
Hail all the governments
spread across the globe
Hail landlords, paying rents
increasing manifold
we are all citizens…
Chronic Citizens…
and we must Break Free…

Sitting in your armchair
flooding through the streets
strapped in with despair
wishing for the beat
pushing all your paper
reading magazines
can’t afford a waiter
so you’re eating pork & beans
we are all citizens
Chronic Citizens…
and we must Break Free…

We are all stuck here together
fettered by the powers that be
like branches gathered
at the mouth of a river
we are waiting… we are rushing…
we are raging… to Break Free…

Falling on our knees praising plastic leaders
like buzzing swarms of bees
paying mega-meters
beading sweat, pressure
upon your fore head
paying bills and leisure
wishing you were dead are all citizens
Chronic Citizens…
and we must Break Free…

Starving kids in Africa
AIDS sexual disease
volcano in Colombia
Dad, can’t I have the keys?
Hijacking foreign diplomats
cancer on the brain
High officials in the government
snorting up cocaine
we are all citizens
Chronic Citizens…
and we must Break Free…
Swaying to and fro
like waves upon the sea
feel the undertow
just before… we crash the shore…
Break
free!!!
