Lyrics

In a quiet town somewhere
60 years from now
Two old men sit on a quiet porch

Reminisce about times of youth hood
there's a difference
It's not the people online who have the torch

Back 60 years from then
HTTPS was anon
You never needed any sort of face

The Wild West was long ago
And now it's all corporate
Freedoms of the past there ain't a trace

We killed rover
everyday we start without him
We killed rover
everyday we start without him

Congress and the Wall Street journal
Tearing up our rights
Don't let deaf man run a music school

Wait for the complaints to rise
But change nothing they will do
Because the rich and powerful control

We killed rover
everyday we start without him
We killed rover
everyday we start without him

We killed rover
everyday we start without him
We killed rover
everyday we start without him
We killed rover
everyday we start without him
We killed rover
everyday we start


About We Killed Rover
