Mr. Harper has a golden tower
And we tried to burn it down
Mr. Harper threw us out of his home
And threw us out of his town
And he covered our eyes
Pristine covering over his lies
Mr. Harper’s golden tower

Mr. Harper has a burning pyre
With a flag that’s beaming pride
Mr. Harper tied us to the boards, and
Burned us ‘cause we said he lied
And he threw us away
So that he could reign another day
Mr. Harper’s golden tower

Mr. Harper’s golden tower
Towering over our head
It will shoot down our dignity
Until we are all dead
Mr. Harper’s golden tower
It just won’t leave us alone
Until we finally use our rights
We will be doomsday prone

Mr. Harper had a large conference, and
Useless words were said that day
She stood up front, and gave us fair warning
Before they took her away
She told us all the truth
“Stop Harper” and then please spare our youth
Mr. Harper’s golden tower

Now if we could just stand up tall and straight
And yell the words that we wrote
On all the brick walls that Harper ignored
We might just make it out alive

Mr. Harper’s golden tower
Towering over our head
It will shoot down our dignity
Until we are all dead
Mr. Harper’s golden tower
It just won’t leave us alone
Until we finally use our rights
We will be doomsday prone
I'm just like the Jonas Brothers,

I'm no longer relevant and write mediocre music.

Subtlety has it's places, but I don't really mourn its absence in this piece. It's unequivocally angry, and there's something to be said for that.

That being said, I've having a hard time getting a flow from just reading it. But I get the feeling these are lyrics, and in that case, phrasing is everything.
