about

With Romancing Revolution we have raised our anti-establishment voice, riding the wave of Socialist energy sweeping through nations and on the crest we sing "I'm the only man that you will never again defy".

lyrics

The curtain rises and behind it are the eyes of every life you deny
And we the people once were peaceful but we feel your grip is getting too tight
You’d think we never knew you, never knew your game
You sick politicised nation, you smug religious shifter of blame

I’m the only man that can hold back the thunder
I’m the only man that writes his name in the sky
I’m the only man that you’ll always be under
I’m the man that never needed to try, oh my

He comes rising with the sun, the chosen one with revolutionary eyes
He has no gun he has the love of everyone and everything you despise
You thought he never knew you, never knew your name
You’re just an ugly situation at a patient executioner’s blade

I’m the only man that can hold back the thunder
I’m the only man that writes his name in the sky
I’m the only man that you’ll always be under
I’m the man that never needed to fly, so high

CHORUS
The war is at your door we’re the new generation
The underdog’s eyes will watch the powerless rise
Romance the Revolution and call to the nation
Because I’m the only man that you’ll never defy
You will never again defy
