Lyrics by JJ3 The Liberty Bard
Song and Video by Chiwawa
I am an ant!
And I don't believe in conformity, which sometimes makes it difficult to be an ant.
Breaking my back day after day, carrying crumbs to put on the queen's tray,
I want to run I want to play. I need a dream that will take me away,
My every thought, my every action, put into motion by a tyrant led faction,
I am not whole merely a fraction -- a fractured soul searching for satisfaction.
I am a slave to the being in charge, she's got her visions but they are not ours,
My power's small hers is quite large, I guess that's why she's the being in charge.
I listen to her what can I do?
She's bigger longer quicker and stronger --
I want to strip her power I do,
But I don't have a way to kill a tyrant - do you?
The other ants they have nothing to prove.
So I just write and try to plan my next move,
How do I get the hill to go with my groove?
I am an ant, I am an ant, I am an ant, I am an ant, I am an ant.
I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees, which does makes it hard for me to be me.
I won't feel complete until I set us all free.
So I write it all down, thought after thought,
I try to point out that our leaders are bought,
I ask them to question all they've been taught,
I ask them to think how our culture is caught.
Caught between a class divide that grows every day,
Caught between religious rights for which wars are waged,
Caught between a wondrous world that captures my heart,
And the necessity of progress that tears it apart.
I am an ant!
So if you feel like an ant, if you feel like I do,
Then join me and let's change our culture's worldview.
