“Lookin’ at millions under a circus tent
Watchin’ a jackass chase a dumb pachyderm
Oh what a show!..

Linking arm in arm, to arms, to arms
Lower your guns and raise your voices
Join the peaceful revolution
Shout I’m mad as hell
and I will ring the bell of freedom
~ lyrics from “Rise Up” by Jeremy Hoop
