We Won't Get Fooled

The poster is a tribute to Pete Townshend and his understanding of the power of music and how it can be the vibration to start a revolution. The lyrics of, Won’t Get Fooled Again, reflect the cycle of man who support revolutions for change only to realize that nothing has changed.

Sooner than later, the people of this country will recognize that they have been fooled again, but will it be too late? What price shall we pay this time? Which of our liberties will be seized upon in the name of protecting us from phantom terrorists. What fear and terror will our own government unleash on the public so that we will wholeheartedly submit to their will. Should our blind faith lead us down a road where even the facade of change is obsolete?

We’ll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the foe, that’s all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain’t changed
‘Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again
No, no!

I’ll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I’ll get all my papers and smile at the sky
For I know that the hypnotized never lie

Do ya?

There’s nothing in the street
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Is now the parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again
Don’t get fooled again
No, no!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

-by Pete Townshend, The Who
