Dan Bull - SOPA Cabana lyrics

[Intro] I was born way back in 1986 I'm an old man now But I remember how it used to be Any now my grandchildren ask me Granddad they say Can you tell us what it was like In the days of the Internet You know, before SOPA And I'd tell them [Verse 1] When was that? Hmm, let me see Some time back in the early 21st century I remember when the Internet was FREE Behind my keyboard, people let me be See, there used to be a thing called Freedom of Speech We had freedom to teach each other, freedom to preach Freedom to share culture and circulate ideas Without the state trying to interfere, enter fear We lost that freedom, not freedom as in free beer But the freedom to be free from fear, even here In the United Kingdom, the fact that I'm from England Isn't a matter that matters to our new masters and kings I was a chap who could sing and distribute my music And like minded citizens could listen to it I couldn't afford an orchestra, I was a poor performer In more ways than one so I sought an alternate formula Reinterpreted the media around me Satirized the leaders' lies on found beats Talked shop on top of a sample of a rock band At least we used to, until rap got banned [Hook] At the SOPA SOPA Cabana The place where SOPA SOPA can ban ya We're At the SOPA SOPA Cabana The place where SOPA SOPA can ban ya [Verse 2] You didn't have to act twisted to get your a** blacklisted Just annoy a big business and get fisted They had a vested interest in Congress If one messed with them, then there'd be one less Our representatives never represented sh** So the internet was history, this was the end of it I remember it like it was yesterday I guess that day, I was too lazy to investigate The escapades of another state's government Now I'm left to pay because the covenant That they signed that day and ratified in law Zipped our mouths up and took away our appetite for more! I can't do much now about the way it is But if I could go back and change things I'd say this Truth is beauty At least it used to be And if you disagree with my views Then you can sue me In the meantime I'll keep using YouTube Even if it means that I need to find a new medium IRC, Darknets, so digital's down now? I'll use pigeons and smoke signals
