BEDLAM ECHOES

Music & Lyrics by John Georgakopoulos

EVERYTHING STARTED
WHEN A COP KILLED A CHILD
AND ALL THE ANARCHISTS GOT MAD
AND STARTED TO DESTROY
THEY WERE BURNING EVERYTHING THEY SAW
AND ATTACKING TO POLICE
WITH THE INTENTION TO KILL
A COP FOR REVENGE
CIVILIANS WERE SHOCKED
FOR THIS TRAGIC INCIDENT
THE WHOLE YOUTH
WAS OUT IN THE STREETS
AND BEGUN TO PROTEST VIOLENTLY

BLOOD RUNS AGAIN
REVENGE IS AT HAND
CHAOS WILL BRING
THEY ARE THE MARTYRS

A SITUATION OUT OF CONTROL
EVERYWHERE FIRES AND REMAINS
BANK AND SHOPS ALARMS
WERE BELTING OUT EVERYWHERE
FIRE BRIGADE'S AND POLICE SIRENS
WERE RINGING ENDLESSLY
LOUD VOICES OF HATE
SPREADING IN THE CITY
COPS GONE ADRIFT
AND FEARED FOR THEIR LIVES
TERROR IN THEIR EYES
THEIR ONLY DEFENSE
THEIR ONLY SALVATION
WAS TEARGAS IN THEIR HANDS

BLOOD RUNS AGAIN
REVENGE IS AT HAND
CHAOS WILL BRING
THEY ARE THE MARTYRS

BUILDINGS AND SHOPS
TOTALLY BURNED ON EVERY STREET
HAND TO HAND FIGHT ON EVERY ALLEY
GUERRILLA WAR
IN A SUPPOSED DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY
A SUDDEN WAR
THAT STARTED WITHIN MINUTES

A RAIN OF MOLOTOV BOMBS AND STONES
AND THE SMOKE FROM THE FIRES
WERE COVERING BLOCKS
MOMENTS OF SHIVER
THE ATMOSPHERE
WAS FROWST AND DANGEROUS


THE ANGER TOOK DAYS
AND THE NEWS WERE KNOWN WORLDWIDE
THE OUTBURST OF DECEMBER THE SIXTH OF 2008
THAT LEFT FADELESS SIGNS
AND PICTURES IN OUR MINDS
TO MAKES US REMEMBER
THAT VIOLENCE BRINGS VIOLENCE

BLOOD RUNS AGAIN
REVENGE IS AT HAND
CHAOS WILL BRING
THEY ARE THE MARTYRS


DEDICATED TO ALEXIS GRIGOROPOULOS
