lyrics

Stand up, stand up, bang your drum
Ba barbarians

Beware the natives, the roots and the leaves,
Talking about wages and ordinary things
We are the savages, we are the scarred,
We are the seraphim, burn it all
Pound it to pulp, pound it to paste,
Pound at the snare strapped to your waist.
Scream shout bang it out again

Stand up, stand up, bang your drum
We are the barbarians
Stand up, stand up, Bang your drum,
Ba barbarians

White shirts, do as they please
Is this the time, who to believe
We're not alone, throwing stones at the moon,
We are the stars counting down at you.
Got it all wrong, they're finished, they're done,
No they were not the righteous ones.
Scream shout bang it out again

Stand up, stand up, bang your drum
We are the barbarians
Stand up, stand up, bang your drum,
Ba barbarians

(Stand up stand up) Everybody
(Stand up stand up) Bang your drum
(Stand up stand up) Everybody
(Stand up stand up) Barbarians
(Stand up stand up) Everybody
(Stand up stand up) Bang your drum
(Stand up stand up) Everybody

Stand up, stand up, bang your drum
We are the barbarians
Stand up, stand up, bang your drum,
Ba barbarians
