Think what you will of their methods, but as far as I am concerned, they do not differ significantly from those of Plowshares or other groups employing various illegal but nonviolent tactics.

Story behind the song
Think what you will of their methods, but as far as I am concerned, they do not differ significantly from those of Plowshares or other groups employing various illegal but nonviolent tactics. This is one of the three songs on this CD that I wrote before 9/11. I was going to put it in Living In These Times, but when I was finished recording that CD I realized that I had forgotten to record it.
Lyrics
Civil disobedience Has many permutations You can block the streets in front of The United Nations You can lay down on the tracks Keep the nuke trains out of town Or you can pour gas on the condo And you can burn it down (Chorus) So here's a toast to the night Three cheers and a grunt To the Earth Liberation Front The Earth Liberation Front You can go to Senate hearings Wait til they call your name My hat is off to anyone With the will to play that game But if you want to know the truth What warms my aching heart Is to see the masked avengers Come to tear the road apart (Chorus) There are so many things of beauty In this world to see A wild, running river Or an old-growth redwood tree But in such an ugly situation So sinister and dire There's nothing quite so lovely As a Wal-Mart on fire (Chorus) They'll tell you that it's violent To destroy a logging truck These are the very people Who'd kill the planet for a buck Talk to the governor Be reasonable, they say Maybe we can talk tomorrow But we can pull the crops today (Chorus) ---- Created February 2001 Copyright David Rovics 2001, all rights reserved
