Rock Against Telecom Immunity!

A song for the telecom companies that broke the law and complied with the administration’s domestic spying program to play while they put you on hold. Enjoy “Free Evenings and Weekends”.

Free Evenings and Weekends

Call me on the telephone, I’ve got time on my plan
I know that no one’s listening, but I know that they can
A little bit of oversight for transparency’s sake
It takes a special criminal
To break a law that there is no reason to break

Evenings and weekends are free
For them to listen in on you and me
And I can’t possibly see
How you and I could ever be
If we go back in time
To when a telephone call it cost just a dime
And a crime was a crime
And we demanded a better excuse than “It’s different this time.”

Carry an agenda in on the backs of the dead
We tried to throw the book at them, they keep moving their heads
In spite of this duplicity I write them a check every month
And in light of their complicity
It’s time that we charged them for once

Evenings and weekends are free
For them to listen in on you and me
And I can’t possibly see
How you and I could ever be
If we go back in time
To when the opposition had something that looked like a spine
And a crime was a crime
And we demanded a better excuse than “It’s different this time.”

  2. Wow, that’s really good. I was expecting some kind of goofy parody type of song. I’d actually slap this into my mp3 player.

  3. Cool song, so far the house is standing up to bu$hco on this one! Hey I sent links to your “kiss the ring” song to a few of my more conservative friends, it really pissed them off! Good job, it really hits a nerve, plus I listened to that song a couple of times and now it just fucking rolls around in my head!

  4. This is it…

    May I?

    I boycotted AT&T/Bellsouth after using their service over the years and through the name changes for 15 years.

    They can bite my ass…
