Track Name: Stand On Our Feet
WE ARE THE BUSKERS YEAH WE'RE CALLED THE BLACK CLOWNS
IT'S LATE AT NIGHT WE'RE OUT HEADING FOR HOME
STOP IN THE NON STOP FOR A FAST FOOD FRY
THREE NAZIS COME UP GET US FROM BEHIND
HIT US WITH BOTTLES MR KRUSTY GOES DOWN
HE GETS RIGHT BACK UP AND THEY LEFT ON THE RUN
IF THEY COME FOR YOU GOTTA STAND ON YOUR FEET
IF THEY COME FOR US GOTTA STAND ON OUR FEET
NOW YOU MIGHT THINK THAT WE WERE VIOLENT AND WRONG
BUT WHEN I KICKED IN HIS FACE I ONLY FELT CALM
THEY ATTACKED US WE DID NOT WANT TO FIGHT
THREE WEEKS LATER THEY KILL A SUDANESE BOY WITH THEIR KNIFE
YOU CAN MAKE WEAPONS OUTTA INTERESTING THINGS
OUT OF PADLOCKS AND CHAINS EVEN DOG FOOD TINS
TIN GOT A BIG DENT FOOD WAS ALRIGHT
THE NAZI WENT DOWN HE WAS OUT OF THAT FIGHT
I TRULY BELIEVE THERE'S MORE OF US THAN OF THEM
BUT NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE ARE READY TO FIGHT AGAINST THEM
LIKE THE TIME BEFORE THE TIME THAT I TELL
WE JUST WATCH THEM PASS US CHANTING SIEG HEIL
WE'RE TOO SCARED AND SHOCKED TO DO ANYTHING
THEY WERE FOLLOWING A BLACK WOMAN AND I STILL FEEL ASHAMED
IF THEY COME FOR YOU GOTTA STAND ON YOUR FEET
IF THEY COME FOR US GOTTA STAND ON OUR FEET
NO MORE BYSTANDER APATHY
NOW IT'S TWENTIETH APRIL HITLER'S BIRTHDAY NIGHT
IN A FOOTBALL RAMPAGE HE GOES DOWN IN THE FIGHT
PUTS HIS HAND TO HIS HEAD WHEN HE AWOKE
HIS FINGER SLIPS INTO THE WOUND TOUCHES BONE
A WEEK LATER ON THE ANTI FASCIST COME UP
SEE THAT BLOOD ON MY BOOT HE GOT HIS COME UP

I'VE SEEN THTAT FASCIST IN MANY A PLACE
IT'S NOT WHAT THEY WEAR NO IT'S IN THE FACE
WITH LONG HAIR SKINHEADS SUITS AND TIES
THE POLICE PROTECT THEM WHILE THEY ORGANISE
TO THE HAMMER SKINS OUT THERE IN CZECH
TO THE BNP AND IN FRANCE LE PENN
TO NATIONAL ACTION AND THE KKK
TO THE NAZI IN THE STREET AND THE POLITICAL PARTY
IF YOU'RE GENUINE THEN WE WANT YOU TO DIE
IF YOU'RE GENUINE THEN WE WANT YOU TO DIE
OUR IDEALS THEY ARE OF LOVE AND THE FASCIST IDEAL IS TO KILL
IF THEY COME FOR US GOTTA STAND ON OUR FEET
Track Name: Food off the Ground
FOOD OFF THE GROUND FOOD OFF THE GROUND
SINCE I WAS A KID I EAT FOOD OFF THE GROUND
ALL MY LIFE I EAT FOOD OFF THE GROUND
TASTE IS NICE FOOD IS FREE
FOOD NOT BOMBS FOOD NOT BOMBS
GONNA EAT SOME FOOD NOT BOMBS
SOUP KITCHEN SOUP KITCHEN
HEADING OUT TO THE SOUP KITCHEN
TASTE IS NICE FOOD IS FREE
EAT CAUSE WE'RE BORED EAT CAUSE WE'RE BORED
IN THE WEST WE EAT CAUSE WE'RE BORED
TASTE IS NICE FOOD IS FREE
TASTE IS NICE FEEL LAZY
Track Name: Eco War
ROUND THE FIRE IN A COLD COLD CAMP
MUD MEDIA NOT MUCH FOOD
CUTTING HOLES IN THE SECURITY FENCES
DIGGING TUNNELS SMASHING MACHINES
HERE COME THE CLIMBERS HERE COME THE POLICE
CHIPPING THE LOCK ON HEY GRIT YOUR TEETH
THE CLOTHES WE WEAR AS PROTEST
BECOME THE FASHION OF THE NIGHTCLUB SET
GOT THE LOOK BUT ARE YOU DOING IT
SHE SITS CRIES ON THE TREE STUMP
MONTHS BEFORE THE CAMPAIGN WAS WON
NOT BY US THE ROAD WENT IN
YOU KNOW THE BASIC FACTS BY NOW
DON'T NEED MORE ROADS DON'T NEED MORE CARS
TOXINS ACCUMULATE IN HUMAN FAT
INSECTS DO CHANGE AND ADAPT
PLANTS WITH DESIGNER GENES
PASS THE MUTATION TO YOU AND ME
IN THE WEST YOU'RE OUT ON BAIL
THE AFRICAN ACTIVIST IS KILLED BY SHELL
IT NOT ABOUT SAVING THE PLANET IT'S ABOUT FIGHTING BACK
THEY SAY A HEALTHY ECONOMY EQUALS A HEALTHY LIFE
THAT'S IF YOU'RE ON THE CORPORATE SIDE
IT'S THE WEST MADE THE THIRD WORLD POOR
USE THOSE PEOPLE FOR CHEAP LABOUR
PRIVATISATION KILLED DEMOCRACY
VOTE AS YOU LIKE THE CAPITALIST SURVIVE
ECO SHOPPERS DON'T HELP SO MUCH WE NEED ACTION NOT FAT STOMACHS
CRUSH THE UNIONS MAKE WORKERS DIVIDE
PRIVATE PRISONS MAKE CASH FROM LIVES
ECO FRIENDLY DOUBLE SPEAKING
DON' LOOK NOW YOUR CONTINENTS SINKING
YOU KNOW WHAT WE HAVE TO DO
LIVE WITH LESS AND CARE SOME MORE
OH MUMMUMMIE MUMMY DAD
WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG ALL THOSE APPLIANCE YOU HAD
I GOT TECHNO INTERNET STEALTH BOMBER AIDS
CLONING OURSELVES AS THE EARTH DECAYS
TONIGHT I'LL SLEEP AND I WILL SNORE
FOR MY KIDS I LEAVE THE ECO WAR
WE'RE THE GENERATION OF THE ECO WAR
BIG DADDY MONKEY'S SITTING AT HIS DESK GOT A TIE AROUND HIS NECK
BUT DOWN IN HIS PANTS AND IN HIS CROTCH
HE'S GOT HAIR SWEAT A STINK IN HIS CROTCH
800 MILLION GO HUNGRY TODAY HE'S EATING CLEAN ORGANIC STEAK
PUTTING IN A CALL TO THE RIOT SQUAD ON HIS DESK A LETTER OF COMPLAINT
ARE YOU REALLY GONNA BELIEVE HIS REPLY
YOU'RE NOT AS NAIVE AS THAT
DON'T FORGET LITTLE PEOPLE CAUSE CHANGE
IN THE HOME THE STREET OR WORK PLACE
YOU DON'T HAVE TO WEAR WEIRD CLOTHES
TAKE UP THE STRUGGLE CAUSE EVERYBODY KNOWS
THIS IS A TIME LIKE NEVER BEFORE
STILL THE IDEOLOGY OF RICH VERSUS POOR
NEED THE CHANGE FROM THE BOTTOM UP
LEADERS AND MONEY A LITTLE BIT SUSSED
GOT SOME CANCER GROWING IN YOUR GUTS
IT'S NOT ABOUT SAVING THE PLANET IT'S ABOUT FIGHTING BACK
WE'RE THE GENERATION OF THE ECOWAR
Track Name: Immigration Song
FUCK YOU IMMIGRATION MAN CAN'T YOU SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING
YOU GOT A HOME TO GO TO TONIGHT
SOME OF US JUST KEEP ON MOVING
NOT GOING TO TAKE OUR FREEDOM
YOU CURSE AND STARE US OUT OF SIGHT
BUT THERE'S GYPSY BOYS IN THE INTERVIEW ROOM
YOU COULDN'T HANDLE WHAT THEY'VE BEEN THROUGH
DON'T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT THEY'VE BEEN THROUGH
DON'T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT THEY FEEL
THEY HAVE POWER IN THEMSELVES
YOU JUST GET POWER FROM YOUR JOB
HOW DARE YOU TAKE THEM FROM THEIR FRIENDS AND FUN
WE HAVE MORE FUN THAN YOU I CAN SEE A DIFFERENT WORLD

STUFF YOU IMMIGRATION WOMAN
CAN'T YOU SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING
YOU GOT A HOME TO GO TO TONIGHT
HE ESCAPED FROM AN IRAQI PRISON
IN HIS MANNER IS DESPERATION
HE JUST WANTS TO HAVE A BETTER LIFE
THERE'S DARK SKINNED BOYS IN THE INTERVIEW ROOMS
CAN'T YOU SEE THEIR TORTURE WOUNDS
DON'T SEEM TO ACT LIKE YOU'RE A HUMAN BEING
I'LL TURN MY CELL INTO A PLAYPEN
LAWYER CALLED I'LL SOON BE WALKING
MAKE SOME ORIGAMI WITH YOUR CHARGE SHEET
WE'RE GONNA GET PAST YOU, I THINK WE'LL GET PAST YOU
I CAN SEE A DIFFERENT WORLD

OK HERE'S THE SETUP, ALL OVER OUR DYING PLANET THERE'S
PEOPLE ON THE RUN, CROATIAN, ALBANIAN, TIMORESE AND THOUSANDS
OF OTHERS, IN THEIR COUNTRY IS POVERTY WAR AND ALL KINDS OF OPRESSION
AND STILL THE BORDERS OF THE RICH NATIONS ARE TIGHTENING SO ONLY
THE WEALTHY ARE WELCOME. NEW LAWSSHOW A DELIBERATE
ATTEMPT TO DISCOURAGE ASYLUM SEEKERS. THESE PEOPLE ARE TURNED
AWAY PUT IN DETENTION OR ALLOWED NO MEANS OF INCOME WHILE
THEY WAIT THEIR ASSESMENT. OFTEN REFUGEES SEEK HELP FROM THE VERY
COUNTRIES THAT CAUSE THEIR HARSH LIVES TO START WITH, CAUSE THE
PRIVILEGED NATIONS STEAL THE RESOURCES OF THE DEVELOPING WORLD
ARM AND SUPPORT THOSE BRUTAL REGIMES. AND STILL THE RACISTS ARE SAYING
OH THEY'LL STEAL OUR JOBS OR THEY'RE SO LAZY THEY WON'T WORK
C'MON SHARING CULTURE IS THE BEST FUN, NEW CLOTHES NEW FOOD NEW MUSIC
NEW IDEAS WEALTHY PEOPLE HAVE GOTTA LEARN TO SHARE A BIT MORE
AND THERE'S PEOPLE CROWDED ONTO SMALL BOATS
USING FALSE PASSPORTS HIDING IN CAR BOOTS
WASTING TIME BEHIND THE WIRE JUST TRYING TO GET SOMEWHERE THAT'S SAFE
AND STILL THE BORDERS ARE BEING SLAMMED SHUT IN THEOR FACES
THAT'S WHY EVERY TIME I'M STANDING IN THAT PASSPORT QUEUE
YOU KNOW WHAT I'LL BE SINGING ...
Track Name: Blow the Man Down
LEND ME YOUR EARS AND I'LL SING YOU A SONG
BOUT THE THINGS THAT BEFALL YOU IF YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE WRONG
I WAS AT HOME HAVING A TOSS
MY FRIEND CAME HOME AND I HAD TO STOP
BLOW THE MAN DOWN BLOW THE MAN DOWN
GIVE US A HAND TO BLOW THE MAN DOWN
I WANTED SOME SEX SO I ASKED HIM FOR SOME
HE SAID NO THANKS AND THAT I WAS A BUM
ON THE ROAD WE SEE THESE TRUCKS
WITH LOCKED UP ANIMALS TO BE SLAUGHTERED
BLOW THE MAN DOWN BLOW THE MAN DOWN
GIVE US A HAND TO BLOW THE MAN DOWN
THE PEOPLE I LIVE WITH GIVE ME THE SHITS
THEY'RE MY BEST FRIENDS HEY AINT IT THE PITS
I WAS OUT WALKING DOWN PARADISE STREET
WHEN A FUCKING YOUNG COPPA I DID CHANCE TO MEET
I SAT IN A VAN A MADMAN WAS DRIVING
I SAID SLOW DOWN BUT HE WENT FASTER
I TOLD HIM AGAIN BUT HE DIDN'T LISTEN
I CALLED HIM A MUCHO HE CALLED ME A WITCH
BLOW THE MAN DOWN BLOW THE MAN DOWN
GIVE US A HAND TO BLOW THE MAN DOWN
Track Name: Smazeny Syr
FRIED CHEESE FRIED CHEESE SMAZENY SYR
FRIED CHEESE FRIED CHEESE IN PRAHA CITY
WE'RE EATING THIS
KICKING IN THE HEADS OF NAZIS
WENT AND BOUGHT CS GAS
SQUATTING AND BUSKING KNUCKLE BUSTING
STOPPED BEING VEGAN AND STARTED EATING FRIED CHEESE

WOOD FIRES AT LADRONKA MANSION
BOUGHT SECOND HAND BOOTIES
TEMPERATURES DROPPING DOGS ARE KNOTTING
EATING PICKLES CAVA FRIED CHEESE
GOT THE VIOLIN WHISTLE INSTRUMENT ACCORDION
STROLLING THROUGH TOWN OURSELVES SERENADING
SQUATTING AND BUSKING KNUCKLE BUSTIN
STOPPED BEING VEGAN AND STARTED EATING FRIED CHEESE

TUESDAY NIGHTS AT 007 WE ARE OUT A SKANKING
RUM AND PIVO WE ARE DRINKING

SATURDAY MORNINGS AT THREE PM

JE DE DI HYZALO
DOPARADELLY

U.S. STYLE MULTICORPS JUST GOT ANOTHER STATE
STILL WE'RE KICKING IN THE HEADS OF NAZIS
WE'LL BE TALKING ABOUT THIS FIGHT FOR THE NEXT SIX WEEKS
SQUATTING AND BUSKING KNUCKLE BUSTING
SMAZENY SYR
Track Name: Tell Me Why
CAN SOMEBOSY PLEASE
CAN SOMEBOSY TELL ME WHY
CAN SOMEBOSY TELL ME WHY THAT WOMAN NVER LAUGHS
OH NO SHE DOESN'T SMILE

WELL SHE'S GOT FEW THINGS TO LAUGH ABOUT
HER BEST FRIEND KILLED HERSELF OUT OF LONELINESS AND FEAR
HER MUM IS AN ALCHOHOLIC JUST ANOTHER VICTIM OF SEXIST SOCIETY
THEY TELL US FEMINISM HAS TRIUMPHED THAT WOMEN ARE EQUAL
YEAH RAMBO WOMEN WITH GUNS ON TV
GOT FEMALE BOSSES IN DESTRUCTIVE MULTINATIONAL COMPANIES
BUT THESE WOMEN ONLY MATCH THEIR MALE COUNTERPARTS
THESE POSITIONS OF POWER ARE NOT MATRIARCHY
WE NEED A NEW WORLD NOT SIMPLY WOMEN IN MALE ROLES
TOO MANY WOMEN DON'T SPEAK OUT AND DEMONSTRATE
AGAINST THEIR SUPPRESSION
SHE'S CRYING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS IN SILENCE

HER GIRLFRIEND IS BEING BASHED BY HER BOYFRIEND
STILL SHE LOVES HIM STILL SHE COVERS UP FOR HIM
IN WARS WOMEN ARE RAPED, KIDNAPPED OR STAY AT HOME
WITH THE CHILDREN TO STARVE
WOMEN IN THE HISTORY OF ALL CULTURES HAVE BEEN TORTURED
LOCKED UP CONTROLLED BURNED CASTRATED CONDITIONED STONED TO DEATH
BY THE MALE RULERS OF THEIR LIVES
SHE'S TIRED BECAUSE SHE'S BEEN AT WORK ALL DAY
NOW SHE'S TAKING CARE OF HIM AS IF HE WERE A BABY

CHORUS

SHE LIVES IN AN UNPLEASANT LIVING SITUATION
SHE FEELS DEPENDENT SHE'S AFRAID
SHE FEELS UGLY HER GIRLFRIENDS TELL HER SHE'S FAT
SHE HAS NO SEX, SHE FEELS GUILTY
SHE'S GOT NO ONE TO TALK TO SHE CRIES
A REAL WOMAN MUST PERFORM MIRACLES ON HERSELF DAILY
TO KEEP THE VOICE OF CRITICSM
THE VOICE OF MEN
HER PIMP HER FATHER HER DOCTOR HER LOVER
HER BROTHER OUT OF HER MIND
WHO WILL PROTECT THEM WHO WILL SET THEM FREE
WHO CARES ... SHE CRIES ALONE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS IN SILENCE
Track Name: 36 37 38 39
THERE'S STILL CROSSES ON THE CHURCHES AND PEUBLOS
BUT WE DRINK THE VINO TINTO FROM THE SPOUT
IT'S POURING DOWN OUR NECKS LIKE THE BLOOD OF THE FREEDOM FIGHTERS
THE BATTLES IN THE STREETS AND THE COUNTRYSIDES IN 36, 37, 38 AND 39
HERE WE READ OF THE NEW WORLD YOU LIVED BACK THEN
READ BY SOLAR POWER ELECTRIC LIGHTS
ANTIQUE GUNS AGAINST THE DIVE BOMBERS
MORROCAN MERCENARIES MOVING ACROSS THESE HILLS
THE TRAMS OF BARCELONA FOR THE PEOPLE AND NOT FOR THE STATE
THINGS HERE ARE NOT SO HARD NOW
WE GOTTA USE OUR FREEDOMS AS MUCH AS WE CAN
KEEP THAT REVOLUTION MOVING

IN MEMORY OF THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO FOUGHT FASCISM IN THE STREETS
YOU FELL AT THE BARRICADES
BIRTHED A LONG LASTING SPIRIT
IN THOSE FAR OFF DAYS
THERE'S A LOOK IN THE PEOPLES FACES
IN THE WAY THAT THEY'RE DANCING
NOT LIKE A NORMAL ARMY
THE PEOPLE YOU FREED LET THEM DECIDE
THEN JAILED AND SHOT AND PUT AWAY
CAUSE YOU WANTED TO THINK FOR YOURSELVES

ON KITCHEN WALLS ALL OVER THE WORLD I'VE SEEN
PICTURES OF THOSE YEARS OF WAR
NOW WE WORK FOR FREEDOM IN DIFFERENT WAYS
MEN AND WOMEN SIDE BY SIDE
WORKING AT CHANGING OUR WAYS

ALL FOUGHT ON THE SAME SIDE
SOME FOUGHT FOR FREEDOM SOME FOR THE STATE
THAT RED AND BLACK BANNER IS FLYING ALL OVER THE WORLD

GRANDFATHER SEVEN YEARS IN FRANCO'S PRISONS
NOW THE ECO FREEDOM FIGHTERS ROT IN THE CELLS
WE'RE SQUATTING OUR HOUSES OUT IN THE MOUNTAINS
ON THE HIGHWAYS WAIT THE CARS OF THE GUARDIA CIVIL
SAME AS 36, 37, 38, 39

YOU LEFT YOUR CITIES IN FLAMES
BIRTHED A LONG LASTING SPIRIT
THAT SPIRIT REMAINS
IT CAN HAPPEN AGAIN
Track Name: Capitulation Day
I WAS UP EARLY THIS MORNING SPRING SUN IN THE AIR
FLOWERS ALL OUT UPON THE TREES
PLANTS GOT POLLEN TO SHARE
WENT OUT WALKING IN THAT PARK
WHERE A FRIEND ONCE HELD MY ARM
THINK OF YOU WHEN I AM THERE
LAST SAW YOU WE WERE DANCING
HEY MEN AND WOMEN MAKE BABIES
AND MEN AND MEN MAKE LOVE
WOMEN AND WOMEN WILL GO TOGETHER
THIS IS WHAT SPRING DOES
DON'T WANT TO THINK OF THE BAD STUFF
TODAY I WILL FORGET THE FEAR
GOT SOME FOOD GOT SOME SUN
GOT THE GUITAR RIGHT HERE
THERE'S A HOLIDAY IN THIS LAND
WE GOT THE WORK DAY OFF
ON THIS DAY 50 YEARS AGO
ADOLF HITLER GOT THE CHOP HOORAY!

YOU AND ME WE MET AT WORK
YOUR EYES ARE COLD AND DARK
YOU ONLY SEEM TO LIKE ME A BIT
BUT I'LL KEEP ON TRYING MY LUCK
MAYBE YOU'LL GO TO THE MOVIES
IF YOU DON'T I DON'T CARE
I'VE GOT OTHER FRIENDS AS WELL
BUT I'D RATHER IT WAS YOU THAT WAS THERE
NOT THAT OFTEN I FEEL THIS GOOD
THE WORLD IS PRETTY TOUGH
SOMETIMES I WANT TO FORGET THE FIGHT
SOME DAYS YOU KNOW I'VE HAD ENOUGH
Track Name: Life Hurts
PASS BY YOU ON MY BIKE
YOU CROUCH ON KERR STREET
WANTED TO APOLOGISE, REMEMBER WHEN
WE WERE TOGETHER, I'SE TOO YOUNG
NOW FROM YOU IT'S HATE
LIFE HURTS A LONG TIME
YOU'RE AT THE DOOR GREEN LIGHT 6AM
EARLY MORNING RAIN
YOU'RE NOT WITH HIM
BEEN OUT SLEEPING IN THE DOORWAYS AGAIN
I LET YOU IN A CUP OF TEA
WHEN I LAST SAW YOU, YOU'D STILL HAVE A CHAT WITH ME
LIFE HURTS A LONG TIME
FELL IN LOVE AT THE PROTEST CAMP
PALLET FIRES, STINGING SMOKE AND RAIN
DRANK CIDER SLEPT IN THE HAY
DREAMY SUMMER COUNTRY DAYS
HITCHED AWAY IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS
NEVER SAW YOU AGAIN

I'M RUNNING CRYING IN THE NIGHT
YOU CAME TO ME MY ONLY FRIEND
I PUSHED YOU AWAY FEELING PROUD FELT BRAVE
COULD OF BEEN WITH YOU THE REST OF MY DAYS
AND YOU SPIT IT DOWN AND KEEP ON MOVING
BOOTS GO DOWN YOU'RE ALMOST HOME
TO A STRANGERS DOOR A MATTRESS ON THE FLOOR
MEMORIES OF THREE YEARS BEFORE

LAST SAW YOU IN A HOSPITAL BED
TUBES UP YOU POOR OLD DICK YOU LOOKED OK
IT'S 4AM WE'RE OUT SIFTING THROUGH THE GARBAGE AGAIN
SOME FACES I RECOGNISE BUT NOW YOU KNOW
THE DEAR OLD BAR IS CLOSED
AND I FEEL LIKE A RUSTY OLD VAN
HOLES ROUND THE WINDOW ENGINES GONE COLD
TYRES ARE FLAT OIL NEEDS CHANGING
AW YOU KNOW THERE'S DUST BETWEEN MY TOES
LIFE HURTS A LONG TIME
