The Resistance (From the Perspective of a Confused and Nervous Observer)
Once upon a time this little town was quiet
Nobody took a step out of line
The automatons had nobody to buffet
If you didn't mind the smell, it was fine
Oh, we always stayed indoors
But no one ever caused uproars
Until those troublemakers came to town
Now, the news is more exciting
But I do not like this acting
Of their futile rebelling
It's because of them the town is upside down
And all of that
Things were so much better when they were dull
Before they came, all was well
Now I'm wakened by a battle yell
Thanks to them, the town is turning turtle
Makes funny sounds
They make life for the rest of us a hurdle
Some say they're a charming bunch
But I simply cannot help this hunch
Because of them, the town is turning turtle
Why are they here?
And why is the air so oddly clear?
I long for past days when our world was calm
When will they cease
And give us all a little peace
It seems that they set off another bomb
Every time I look up
All night long
Some of us
Want to sleep
These resistors make my blood curdle
Not a day
Can slip by
There's not a law
They won't defy
The whole of No Man's Landing's turning turtle
If only they were far away
I might not be so cross today
But it seems as if they're going to stay
Even though I disapprove
Why can't the Empire catch them all
So I won't hear another brawl
I thought this Resistance was small
So why am I the one to move
Have the spread to Evercity?
Oh, they have, then that's a pity
Do you think they will succeed?
Judging by what they can do
And all the trouble they can brew
It seems they have something indeed
Something that others need
I seem to be sympathizing
Could some of the things they say be true?
Though they are odd
Everybody is a little flawed
They do have a fascinating point of view
Near and far, hear and there
Resistors are everywhere
And things aren't all that bad
Better than we've ever had
These Resistors work to improve our town
So why does the Empire hunt them down?
Why don't they welcome all this good?
As any sane government should?
You really expect that they would
Why are they so misunderstood?
Why does the Empire hate these blokes
When they do so much for other folks
I doesn't seem to be quite right
That they keep up this fight
The country's turning turtle
