Resist Tyranny – Van Morrison and Eric Clapton Anti-Lockdown Songs

Although most of Hollywood and the Music World have (sadly) openly supported the Socialist Agenda of the Covid-19 pLandemic and left us commoners to fend for ourselves in a Lockdown World, at least two members of the Music World Hall of Fame are standing up to #ResistTyranny. Beginning in the Fall of 2020, Van Morrison and Eric Clapton have both performed new Anti-Lockdown Songs. Watch the vids, see the lyrics, and read about the story here.


Stand and Deliver – Anti-Lockdown Song

Stand and Deliver Lyrics

Here are the full lyrics:

Stand and deliver
You let them put the fear on you
Stand and deliver
But not a word you heard was true
But if there’s nothing you can say
There may be nothing you can do

Do you wanna be a free man
Or do you wanna be a slave?
Do you wanna be a free man
Or do you wanna be a slave?
Do you wanna wear these chains
Until you’re lying in the grave?

I don’t wanna be a pauper
And I don’t wanna be a prince
I don’t wanna be a pauper
And I don’t wanna be a prince
I just wanna do my job
Playing the blues for friends

Magna Carta, Bill of Rights
The constitution, what’s it worth?
You know they’re gonna grind us down, ah
Until it really hurts
Is this a sovereign nation
Or just a police state?
You better look out, people
Before it gets too late

You wanna be your own driver
Or keep on flogging a dead horse?
You wanna be your own driver
Or keep on flogging a dead horse?
Do you wanna make it better
Or do you wanna make it worse?

Stand and deliver
You let them put the fear on you
Slow down the river
But not a word of it was true
If there’s nothing you can say
There may be nothing you can do

Stand and deliver
Stand and deliver
Dick Turpin wore a mask too


No More Lockdowns – Van Morrison Anti-Lockdown Song

No More Lockdown Lyrics

No more lockdown
No more government overreach
No more fascist police
Disturbing our peace
No more taking of our freedom
And our God-given rights
Pretending it’s for our safety
When it’s really to enslave
Who’s running our country?
Who’s running our world?
Examine it closely
And watch it unfurl
No more lockdown
No more threats
No more Imperial College
Scientists making up crooked facts
No more lockdown
No more pulling the wool over our eyes
No more celebrities telling us
Telling us what we’re supposed to feel
No more status quo
Put your shoulder to the wheel

No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown

No more lockdown
No more government overreach
No more fascist police
Disturbing our peace
No more taking of our freedom
And our God-given rights
Pretending it’s for our safety
When it’s really to enslave
Who’s running our country?
Who’s running our world?
Examine it closely
And watch it unfurl
No more lockdown
No more threats
No more Imperial College scientists
Making up crooked facts
No more lockdown
No more pulling the wool over our eyes
No more celebrities telling us
How we’re supposed to feel
No more status quo
Gotta put your shoulder to the wheel

No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown

No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown
No more lockdown


Van Morrison speaks out against Lockdowns

In a story reported by Paul Bois on The Daily Wire in late Dec 2020, Van Morrison notes that “Politicians ‘Haven’t Missed A Paycheck Since Lockdown Began.”

Music icon Van Morrison is once again blasting mandatory coronavirus closures, noting that politicians “haven’t missed a paycheck” since the forced shutdowns began.

“Remember, those who are shutting down our economy haven’t missed a paycheck since lockdown began. We are not in this together,” he wrote on Twitter.

In another tweet, Van Morrison also pointed out that the Northern Ireland Executive has not been able to scientifically justify lockdowns. “10 months on and the @niexecutive still hasn’t presented the science for the Northern Ireland lockdown,” he said.

Van Morrison’s comments come after he released the song “Stand and Deliver” performed by Eric Clapton that also skewered the lockdowns.

“Do you wanna’ be a free man or do you wanna be a slave?” Clapton sings. “Do you wanna’ wear these chains until you’re lying in the grave?”

Other lyrics include: “Magna Carta, Bill of Rights/ The constitution, what’s it worth?/ You know they’re gonna’ grind us down, ah/ Until it really hurts/ Is this a sovereign nation/ Or just a police state?/ You better look out, people/ Before it gets too late.”

Northern Ireland Health Minister Robin Swann criticized the song as playing into the hands of conspiracy theorists.

“It’s actually a smear on all those involved in the public health response to a virus that has taken lives on a massive scale,” Swann told Rolling Stone. “His words will give great comfort to the conspiracy theorists – the tin foil hat brigade who crusade against masks and vaccines and think this is all a huge global plot to remove freedoms.”

Speaking with Variety, both Clapton and Van Morrison said that the lockdowns grip on the live music industry has been “deeply upsetting.”


Van Morrison’s Anti-Lockdown Songs labeled “Dangerous” by Irish Govt

In a story reported by Chris Pandolfo on TheBlaze.com, famous Irish singer-songwriter Sir Van Morrison’s new anti-lockdown lyrics have been labeled “dangerous” by a health minister in Northern Ireland.

The singer said on Friday that he recorded three new “protest songs” in which he reportedly claims the U.K. government is using COVID-19 lockdowns to “enslave” the people. The new songs are called “Born to Be Free,” “As I Walked Out,” and “No More Lockdown” and will be released in two-week intervals beginning Sept. 25, AFP reports.

“Born To Be Free, As I Walked Out, and No More Lockdown are songs of protest which question the measures the Government has put in place,” a statement on Morrison’s website said. “Morrison makes it clear in his new songs how unhappy he is with the way the Government has taken away personal freedoms.”

“I’m not telling people what to do or think, the government is doing a great job of that already,” Morrison said. “It’s about freedom of choice, I believe people should have the right to think for themselves.”

According to the statement, Morrison “feels strongly that lockdown is in danger of killing live music.”

The lyrics to “No More Lockdowns,” as reported by the BBC, give an explicit idea of what Morrison thinks of the COVID restrictions adopted in the U.K.

No more lockdown / No more government overreach,” goes the chorus. “No more fascist bullies / Disturbing our peace.”

“No more taking of our freedom / And our God given rights / Pretending it’s for our safety / When it’s really to enslave.”

Morrison’s lyrics also accuse scientists of “making up crooked facts” and, according to the BBC, refer to a viral Facebook post of a screenshot from a U.K. government website saying, “Covid-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious disease (HCID) in the UK.”

“While it is true that Covid-19 does not meet the criteria for an HCID — which typically has a high fatality rate (as much as 50% in the case of Ebola) — the disease is still considered highly infectious, with no specific vaccines or treatment currently available,” the BBC reports.

The health minister for Northern Ireland, Robin Swann, described the new songs as “dangerous.”

“I don’t know where he gets his facts,” Swann said. “I know where the emotions are on this, but I will say that sort of messaging is dangerous.”

This is not the first time the “Brown Eyed Girl” singer has created controversy over coronavirus lockdown policies. In August, Morrison tried to rally other musicians to “save live music” and campaign against socially distanced gigs.

“I call on my fellow singers, musicians, writers, producers, promoters and others in the industry to fight with me on this. Come forward, stand up, fight the pseudo-science and speak up,” Morrison said.
