Stray From The Path - Eavesdropper Lyrics

Mic check, is this thing tapped?
'Cause I can't say shit without being hacked
Mic Check, is this thing tapped?
'Cause I know they hit record and play it back

Town houses, bugged out
Drop the bomb, smoke them out
Eavesdropper, free thought stopper
In my home, in my phone, in a helicopter
Looking down in the towns with a searchlight
There's a shadow with no sun tonight, alright?
C4 to the door, say hello to your big brother
Now put your hands up mother fucker

Mic check, is this thing tapped?
'Cause I can't say shit without being hacked
Mic Check, is this thing tapped?
'Cause I know they hit record and play it back

There's a storm about to roll in
Boarded up I'm Edward Snowden
Morse coding
Messages behind the men in black
Bite my lip before I catch a bullet in the back of my head
Narcs sleeping in my bed?
Keeping tabs on everything I said
Hand me over to the feds
Drag me to the chemical sheds
And let my last words be
Free speech is dead

From GCHQ to the NSA
When the tables are turned
Laws are nothing but hearsay
They are subject to the whims of stubborn rulers
Taking a drill to a hard drive ain't gonna fool us
It's all uncovered, their shadows are lifted
Through the meta data, and content their sifting
Ask my boy Orwell what the hell do we do
His fiction pervades the future, for me and you.

C4 to the door say hello to your big brother
Now put your hands up you fuck

C4 to the door say hello to your big brother
Now put your hands up you fuck

Mic check, is this thing tapped?
'Cause I can't say shit without being hacked
Mic Check, is this thing tapped?
'Cause I know they hit record and play it back

    what the fuck is wrong with you People. reddit brought me hear.

  10. CidAngst

    Everyone says these guys are the second coming of Rage, but I think this music is more important today than ever, to get the message out. Rage abandoned us once Bush was elected.

  11. Samfia Drangus

    Fuck having Rou on this was such a good idea. I love that guy. I love this.

  12. PJ Dewitt

    Has that Rage against the machine feel to it, I'm digging this band 💪🏼

  33. HRburnsred

    Jesus fuck

  34. David Ward

    Best track on a killer album!

  35. Electroventure

    just curious, does Sumerian not like Spotify? Stray and Veil's new albums mostly cannot be streamed via Spotify and YES I buy music but still! most of the time when I jam I am on my laptop and throw Spotify on so I don't sit around for five minutes trying to decide what I should listen to

  36. Tim Medic

    Does Drew listen to immortal technique the flow in this reminds me of him.

  37. Pale

    This song makes me be able to go through work. One of the best songs on the whole album to just fucking rock out to.

    what's the key of the song? what tuning the guitars are in? would appreciate the answer

  58. BackjumperOFFICIAL

    In a (musical) world where everybody goes finding that fake "perfection", I'm so glad someone is taking it back to the roots: love how this new stray stuff's sounding, raw and uncompromised.

  59. El Patron

    I can't wait for to come Friday (8/14). I'll be picking this up along with the new BFMV, and Soulfly albums.

    Stray From The Path

    @ThePredecessors Thank you!

  76. Lu Walker

    SOLID - Rou Reynolds

    Gorgeous track lads


    I like the new stuff but, the sound quality is lacking.

    Stray From The Path

    @IA MERROR Thank you. But I think if you actually get the CD or Vinyl, you will be proven incorrect. It sounds insane


    I hope so guys, either way, I'm fucking stoked! You guys are one of few bands out there that actually sings about something real and I fucking love you all for it. Rage Against the Machine would be proud! \m/

  78. Eric Bouvier

    Okay, is it just me or is this like Rage Against The Machine on steroids in the best way possible?

  79. Jawsh :3

    I feel like this should be the staple hardcore band for everyone.

    Stray From The Path

    @Josh McFadden Thank you Josh!

    Jawsh :3

    @Stray From The Path Of course. I'm stoked for the new album. I've looped Badge and a Bullet 2 probably too much.

  80. Paul.Morgan

    This...... FUCKING THISSS!!  

    Beyond dope. Every song off this album is just getting better and better. When shit breaks lose this is gonna be blasting in my ear on the streets.

  94. LGo0926

  95. Tyler Wilson

    Stray From The Path

    @Tyler Wilson Thank you Tyler!

  96. nick pumo

    This song is sick, and the message is so important. Im glad to see this band recognizes whats going on in the world instead of burying their heads in the sand like most do

  97. Silverhaze_OG

    Hey Stray, came to 3 Mindsweep tour dates (Baltimore, NYC and Philly) and you guys absolutely fucking killed it. Enter Shikari is my favorite band you guys are just a beautiful team, please tour more with those lads around the US again, time for a revolution :D Overjoyed seeing Rou's name and that british accent fly in on a fucking STFP song! See you guys on your next NJ or Philly date, hope to meet finally!

  98. Josh Matotek

    Rou was perfect in this song. My dream finally came true...
