Revolution Day
 
(Springfield)

Hey there's a revolution here tonight
I torch the fortress gates and I watch them burn
I was bringing down the wall and I didn't shed a tear, baby
cause when your choice is stand or fall
there's not much left to say
No surrender no retreat at all
on Revolution Day

Ain't that the truth now baby
yea, on Revolution Day
Shot from the rooftops baby
Right here on Revolution Day
When your word is all you've got
And every single thing you say sounds like a shot
It's Revolution Day

The fires are still burning here tonight
I roll away  the stone and I look inside
I woke up with Revolution ringing in my ear baby
It'll lead me to the guillotine
But I know that it's ok
Cause things ain't always what they seem
On Revolution Day

Ain't that the truth now baby
On Revolution Day
And this fortress I built was just my mistake
On Revolution Day
When a hammer's all you've got
And everything starts looking like a nail, it's not
It's Revolution Day

It's a personal Revolution
My personal Revolution
Come On!

You are the revolution
Ain't that the truth now baby
On Revolution Day
And this fortress I built was just my mistake
On Revolution Day
Well it's a personal Revolution
A shout from the rooftop baby
Right here on Revolution Day
It's Revolution Day
yea, it's Revolution Day
