Track Name: The Fifth of November
The Fifth of November
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holla boys, Holla boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
And what should we do with him?
Burn him!

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
A stick or a stake for King James' sake
Will you please to give us a fagot
If you can't give us one, we'll take two;
The better for us and the worse for you!

A penny loaf to feed the Pope
A farthing o' cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down.
A fagot of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar.
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head.
Then we'll say ol' Pope is dead.
Hip hip hoorah!
Hip hip hoorah hoorah!

United by One, Divided by Zero
We are not hackers.
We are not terrorists.
We are not violent.

Anonymous is an idea
That all of us deserve freedom;
Freedom of thought,
Freedom of speech,
Of expression, knowledge, and belief.

The freedom to determine our own course and destination.

We, as citizens of the world bear witness to tyranny, oppression, and censorship.
We, as activists, seek to change the system, to end corruption.
We resist those who violate our rights.
We seek transparency.

We are Anonymous.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Expect us.

-Anonymous
