The Grid Men Are Coming

Protest Song Lyrics

The grid men are coming
They’re knocking at our doors
Installing the machinery of a covert war.
They say it’s just a meter
No reason to object
But this Fascist insistence is highly suspect.
They’re leaping over fences
They’re cutting locks and chains
They’ll break down our defenses, then radiate our brains.

The system is brutal
Resistance is futile
Or so they will have us believe.
We are the resistance
And we are persistent
And , NO, we will not be deceived

The grid men are cunning
They want to quell all doubt
They’re audacity is stunning.
They say you can ‘opt out’
They’ll still install the meter
Then bill you for their fable
About how it’s much safer with the wireless disabled.
But what they will not tell you
The dirty jaded lairs
One of the two transmitters will still bleed into your wires

The system is brutal
Resistance is futile
Or so they will have us believe.
We are the resistance
And we are persistent
And , NO, we will not be deceived
