Story behind the song
Dedicated to the good people seizing the airwaves throughout the US and the world, but it especially goes out to the folks at Free Radio Santa Cruz.
Lyrics
This is how it started It's not hard to understand From coast to coast they're lying At a CEO's command From Nationalist Public Radio CNN and ABC Big Brother's spewing propaganda From the Disinformation Ministry They say the economy is booming We hear the homeless beggar's cries They say we help poor countries We see bombs falling from the skies Reality doesn't exist They're trying to say But some of us decided There is another way (Chorus) Seize the airwaves Seize the time Lying to the people Is the real crime When it's all owned by corporations And theirs is the only word We will seize the airwaves Speak freely and be heard Someone got a transmitter Started up a station Then the idea spread Right across the nation Like the land and water The air must be free So let us shout together "Fuck the FCC" (Chorus) And we'll do it all together In a grassroots style Breaking down the fences Throughout this whole square mile It's the new Town Meeting It's the way the news should be The rulers call it chaos We say it's democracy So when you turn on the radio And you've had it with this shit From 88 to 107 Makes you want to have a fit When you listen to the music And it's all the same pop song Start up a pirate station 'Cause that's where you belong (Chorus) ---- Created May, 2002 Copyright David Rovics 2002, all rights reserved
