Lyrics (Chang Jui-chuan):

I’m arrested for a breach of the peace, uh-huh
I’m arrested for a breach of the peace, uh-huh
I’m imprisoned for the truth that I speak
Will be executed for the love that I seek, uh-huh

My friend’s a teacher. Sylvie wears this black T-shirt
Bought from Reporters without Borders, recorders of marauders
It’s five handcuffs joined above 2008
Pay online, and your shipment arrives in fourteen days
But when I’m placing an order on this free-speech website
It’s taken over by the interface in Chinese Simplified
Propaganda’s never simplified, can only be vandalized
I orchestrate lyrical drive-bys
Blacklisted writers ain’t woke up from the abyss
How much of your justice was purchased by those in mists?
Sonic death threats received ‘cause she says “Shame on the police”
Intelligence is openly silenced by violence on reprise
Rich folks and politicians perform intercourse on TV
Metaphors that tease me accept the passports of them landlords
Granted entry to my country self-willingly spelled backward
The benumbed wolf in the Arctic licks the blade that protrudes from the snow
Suicide show. Tongue cut, feast of blood, body picked up
By hunters who hide to maintain the status quo
Gunshots heard from the other side of the war zone
Thousands of kilos away but near like a ring tone
Freedom of speech becomes a figure of speech, shown
By the greed of a leech and a dog on a leash

I’m arrested for a breach of the peace, uh-huh
I’m arrested for a breach of the peace, uh-huh
I’m imprisoned for the truth that I speak
Will be executed for the love that I seek, uh-huh

Ancient mentality created solely by homo sapiens
Pillaging their own kind across space and time
Neither animal nor divine, breathed into your blood
Whether you’re deaf, dumb, or blind
He who sees from the side has eight eyes
Meditate and transform into the late night
Admire cherry blossoms from two breaths away
Enter the tea room disarmed and learn the Way
Drink water from the well, elixir for any pain felt
My steel’s long sheathed so heaven isn’t hell
Triumph is fulfilled when no one’s killed
But life prevails when it ends. I’m Death himself
Tolerance for police brutality in a Zen style
Fragrance of mortal sacrifices to defend smiles
Of those women and children who are precious and innocent
When traces of murder and terror seem but evident
The earthquake distracted attention, not a precedent
But didn’t stop the soldiers from butchering more dissidents
Donations channeled to corruption and military weapons
Vengeance is yours, Lord, witnessed with eyes open
Reflections of the sun, moon, and stars on the ocean
Paradigms are shifting, huh, in constant motion
They say all the answers are written on the hidden leaves
Read carefully, and you can be truly free

I’m arrested for a breach of the peace, uh-huh
I’m arrested for a breach of the peace, uh-huh
I’m imprisoned for the truth that I speak
Will be executed for the love that I seek, uh-huh
