Dan Bull - D.O.A. (d**h of ACTA) lyrics

[Verse 1:] Only rapper to be called a thief without stealing Download an MP3 for free, these people hit the ceiling I'm just a citizen that's teaching you a lesson For restricting my freedom of expression How can ideas be possessions when they're freely replicable? Hence unapplicable property laws are reprehensible Didn't Jefferson express his opinion on the matter When he said inventions shouldn't be given a patent What happened to that thinking, we're stuck in a pattern Where the people with everything are keeping everything from us who haven't We want it back, look, fed up of adverts, left and right Begging me to buy til there's nothing left of mine To spend, never mind, who's next in line to testify That we need laws like these to protect our rights? Medicine has never been something I'd ever deprive Especially when a life depends on it to survive Yeah, it takes an incredible effort to develop them right But putting wealth over health, I said it's never been right [Verse 2:] I'm just a citizen that's teaching you a lesson For restricting my freedom of expression, and I reckon If old blues themes hadn't been used by Led Zeppelin We wouldn't ever have any heavy metal then The history of music would have never even happened And amusingly there wouldn't even be a Metallica To tell us that we should hang on the gallows of law So we wouldn't even need to have a Gallo Report Oh and by the way the fricking Gallo's support Is made of signatures which have been apparently forged This sh** is sinister, and cannot be allowed to enforce So tell your ministers and MEPs of how it's been brought about Although you'll probably get a shallow retort Because the lobbyists have got a grip around all their balls If I was boss, I'd tell them get the Hell out the door Because I've had enough of corrupt crooks ramming through laws [Verse 3:] I'm just a citizen that's teaching you a lesson For restricting my freedom of expression Yes, and deep packet inspection? squeeze that up your rectum If your postman did that to you you'd be having him sectioned Arrested for meddling in your private affairs But it's only online, right? so why should we care? Because digital rights should be applicable right Here in real life, and we're not criminals, right? So this is just why we'll never give up the fight To be considered innocent until we kick up and die Giving internet providers responsibility For the whims of their subscribers infringes privacy Before the internet, media was a rarity But how do you expect it to keep its value without scarcity And that's what scares me, seeing their cons and schemes To stop their creaking business model being obsolete What a robbery they pull off so obviously Don't give a f** who it affects as long as it's not me Well I'll keep making copies, see if they can stop me They'll have to confiscate my PC and take it off me See there's no problem with taking my property For creating some lines of binary, blatant hypocrisy Afraid to face the controversy relating to what we need Making a profit off it or breaking monopolies
