<nettime> message from the enemy


i am the enemy

i am the enemy, this is my profession
i am a terrorist and this is my confession
i am the enemy, i am a terrorist
a negative serial killer, too
you know, i am the father of two
i am the enemy, i am the enemy

bring me to court, hear the witness
i am the enemy, i must confess
i am a habitual offender
i am the enemy i must surrender
i am a person, not a state
war will only bring more hate
don't punish me with a war
that will dearly cost us all

the powers they may condemn me
for my crime is that i believe
the powers they may punish me
for my beliefs, for these i grieve
i don't believe in piracy
but i do believe in privacy
i don't believe in bad oppression
but i do believe in free expression

bring me to court, hear the witness
i am the enemy, i must confess
i am a habitual offender
i am the enemy i must surrender
i am a person, not a state
war will only bring more hate
don't punish me with a war
that will dearly cost us all

my conspiracy is my hope
more will join, let's grow in scope
the world has more than one dimension
can only money ease the tension?
selfish waste gives us bad weather
we must learn to work together
i am the enemy, are you me?
who will say: i am the enemy

bring us to court, hear the witness
we are the enemy, we must confess
we are all habitual offenders
we are the enemy we must surrender
we are people, not a state
war will only bring more hate
don't punish us with a war
that will dearly cost us all
