Creepy crawlies and other living things

Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per far cadere il governo,
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per distruggere le Camere del Parlamento,
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per reclamare il potere per tutti noi.
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per saccheggiare la ricchezza,
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per ridistribuirla,
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per porre fine alla polarizzazione della ricchezza.
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per distruggere le compagnie petrolifere,
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per difenderci contro la deforestazione,
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per proteggere il nostro mondo dal collasso climatico.
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per distruggere il sessismo e il bigottismo,
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per far cadere ogni singola gerarchia
Dovremmo usare i nostri palchi per terminare il pregiudizio e la sottomissione ...
I like to drink from mossy fountains right after the rain,
it gives me a stomach ache but i still do it again,
and if you ask me what i think i can't accurately explain,
I don't know how.

And I think it's inconsistency which defines our existences,
because everyone I see acts differently in different instances,
like ephemeral shapes dividing and colliding all the time.
I wonder why

Most flowers only blossom every now and again,
but I guess perennial beauty would end up kind of tame,
life only seems meaningless when it's always the same –
just flip the tape!

If I was a male deer I wouldn't fight with the stags,
because I do not associate as being one of the lads,
and I can think of better uses for my antlers than that,
oh yes I can!

So let's just sing:

La la la la...

I get suspicious of people in raincoats in the sun,
it seems to me a totally unnecessary precaution,
but if it makes them feel safer well I guess there is no problem,
but it must be hot

In the burning, molten centre of your gazing, staring eyes,
is a twisting ballerina who is skating on the ice,
and it's whenever they fall over that you feel the need to cry:
'Oh what a life!'

It takes so much precision to jump between the springs,
but if you take too long on your decision then they will begin to sink,
and no one ever really gives a fuck what you think,
they don’t have the time.

I'd like to put a thousand flavours straight into your mouth,
and see how long it took you to figure all of them out,
well it might seem pretty pointless but well what isn't now?
Isn't that the point?

So let's just sing:

La la la la...

We'd use our antlers to bring down the government,
We'd use our antlers to destroy the houses of parliament,
We'd use our antlers to reclaim power for all of us.

We'd use our antlers to loot from the rich,
We'd use our antlers to redistribute it,
We'd use our antlers to end the polarization of wealth.

We'd use our antlers to destroy oil corporations,
We'd use our antlers to defend against deforestation,
We'd use our antlers to protect our world from climatic collapse.

We'd use our antlers to smash sexism and bigotry,
We'd use our antlers to bring down every single hierarchy
We'd use our antlers to end prejudice and subjugation...

But we’re not male deer so let's end that train of thought,
and the path to a fairer world is far more complex we are sure,
and we'll probably never live in a world without war,
but please let's just do all we fucking can
to resist our oppression.
