Dan Bull - Net Neutrality Battle Rap lyrics

[Hook] The world wide web is under attack They're taking it away but we're pulling it back The world wide web is under attack They're taking it away but we're pulling it back [Verse 1] So the FCC won't let me be They wanna stack the deck for the ISPs But we got a couple of tricks up our sleeves It's far too important to leave to police It could lead to the streets A breach of the peace And even decrease our freedom of speech There's never been a bigger reason to read up And see what's agreed ‘cause of greed for the green and deceit The greener the leaf, the sweeter the tree The quicker they'll chop it down and leave nothing but tree stumps Debris The Damage is done, no refund received See, the thing about net neutrality Is unless you get huge salaries The paramedic won't rescue casualties ‘Til they've seen to the rich next dude's allergies They'll prioritize cash over content Wanna send one bit? That's one sent What nonsense, man it's scaring me A planet of plenty's selling scarcity Innovation paved the way Now invaders are paying to take it away But they ain't gonna make it today Letting that happen's a major mistake If Lessig was rapping he'd tell you the same Letting that happen's a major mistake Tim Berners Lee baked us a cake And they've taken the cherry AND THE CAKE!!! Discrimination is happening today To blacks and to gays and to packets of data Though ethically they're exactly the same So oi, we're not gonna stand for it mate U wot? The fok u sayin bruv? U wot m8??? The fok u saying bruv? U wot? Fak off u arsehole [Hook] The world wide web is under attack They're taking it away but we're pulling it back The world wide web is under attack They're taking it away but we're pulling it back [Verse 2] I'm from the place John Oliver came from Where no matter where you live you should be singing the same song At long last, I'm putting Comcast on blast ‘Cause they never learned their lesson like they're in the wrong cla** Well I'm the professor and I'm setting you with one task Get ‘em knocked back like a shot gla** Straight in front of me's a cable company The way they're behaving's unbelievable Comcast is in league with the Devil And it's pissing me off, I'm not even American Take a peek, see from the evidence Netflix had to pay a fee to get better links It's a shakedown, communication breakdown There's a bully in the playground I had enough of that at school, won't lay down Lay a finger on me: you'll be laid out You'll be laid out You'll be laid out You'll be laid out You'll be laid out You'll be laid out Lay a finger on me: You'll be laid out [Hook] The world wide web is under attack They're taking it away but we're pulling it back The world wide web is under attack They're taking it away but we're pulling it back Taking it back, taking it back We're taking it, we're taking it back
