SOLIDARITY FOREVER; a mix for wisconsin

Black Flag - "Rise Above"
jealous cowards try to control
rise above, we're gonna rise above
they distort what we say
rise above, we're gonna rise above
try and stop what we do
rise above, we're gonna rise above
when they can't do it themselves
we are tired of your abuse
try to stop us, it's no use

American Steel - "Sons of Avarice"
tell the teachers and nurses and soldiers
they must be lazy and/or dumb
while you, you earn a hundred to one
oh, but don't you fucking utter the word "meritocracy"

Dillinger Four - "Contemplate this on the Tree of Woe."
there's a change coming on, we gotta right these fucking wrongs
they can cover their ears but we won't stop screaming
the mighty fall, this curtain's coming down
sputtering excuses for the mess they brought us all
keep them inside, maybe we can block the exits

Hot Water Music - "No Divison"
i'm not living under them when we could when we could rise above
a culture that says we are better than worse than anyone that's not like us
we'll sing our hearts in unity that we won't obey or follow hate
we stand together, we stand with no division

boysetsfire - "When Rhetoric Dies"
stand in line and take a number, you sell your soul
then watch it crumble into a pile of rubble that used to be
your job, your life, your family's daily bread
is dry and stale; malnourished kids
the house is sold for a degrading bid
do we continue to talk or do we take a hammer to their chains?

The Nightwatchman - "Union Song"
for joe hill and caesar chavez, who fought in their own time
for our brothers and our sisters up and down that picket line
for the unnamed and unnumbered who struggle brave and long
for the union men and women, standing up and standing strong

Johnny Cash - "God's Gonna Cut You Down"
you may throw your rock and hide your hand
workin' in the dark against your fellow man
but as sure as god made black and white
what's done in the dark will be brought to the light

Billy Bragg - "There is Power in a Union"
now i long for the morning that they realize
brutality and unjust laws can not defeat us
but who'll defend the workers who cannot organize
when the bosses send their lackies out to cheat us?

Dropkick Murphys - "Which Side Are You On?"
oh, workers, can you stand it? oh, tell me how you can?
will you be a lousy scab or will you be a man?
don't scab for the bosses, don't listen to their lies
us poor folks haven't got a chance unless we organize

This Bike is a Pipe Bomb - "We Shall Not Be Moved"
we're fighting for our freedom, we shall not be moved
just like a tree planted by the water, we shall not be moved
we're black and white together, we shall not be moved
just like a tree planted by the water, we shall not be moved

Pete Seeger - "Solidarity Forever"
is there aught we hold in common with the greedy parasite
who would lash us into serfdom and would crush us with his might?
is there anything left to us but to organize and fight?
for the union makes us strong

Bruce Springsteen - "We Shall Overcome"
we are not afraid, we are not afraid
we shall overcome someday
here in my heart, I do believe
we shall overcome someday
we shall overcome, we shall overcome
we shall overcome someday
darlin', here in my heart, I do believe
we shall overcome someday

Woody Guthrie - "This Land Is Your Land"
nobody living can ever stop me
as i go walking that freedom highway
nobody living can ever make me turn back
this land was made for you and me

University of Wisconsin Marching Band - "You've Said It All"
when you say 'wisconsin', you've said it all
