about

I tried to think of a national anthem to write using orchestral arrangements and choir samples, but it was frustrating and came to nothing. In an effort to twist the challenge in the direction of my comfort zone, I came up with the fictional country of Oitopia, a nation occupied by anarchist punk separatists.

lyrics

We are one and all the same
We're not pawns in someone else's game
We're not crippled by no state
No suffocating under fat cats' weight

Oitopia
We're punk rockers on the run
We pledge all our allegiance to our guitars and our drums
Oitopia
We don't need no queen or king
You can hear all of our righteousness in the music that we bring

Oitopia
We ain't lookin' for a fight
We are all of the same mind and we are all of the same stripe
Oitopia
We don't need no queen or king
You can hear all of our righteousness in the music that we bring
