Do you hear the people sing/ singing a song of angry men
It is the music of a people/ who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart/ echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start/ when tomorrow comes!
—Do You Hear the People Sing?, Les Misérables

then we'll come from the shadows

We are the ones who break the jail bars in two for our brothers,
hunger drives, hate pursues, misery binds us to one another.
There are countries where people sleep without a care and lie dreaming.
But here, do you see, we march on, we kill on, we die screaming.
"Ah, yes, a rag-tag group of heroes... The evil overlord's biggest weakness."
— George, Bob and George

Preston: I wouldn't say that. But change takes time...
Sisko: You've run out of time.
