Helping Hands Help You Stand

Hello Brothers
Hello Sisters
Hello Comrades

Words with meaning uttered without thought
Thoughts without words resembling nought

What is a Brother?
What is a Sister?
What is a Comrade?

When we say brother does it have meaning
Or do we say it without feeling?
When we say sister does it have meaning
Or do we say it without caring?
When we say comrade does it have meaning
Or do we say it without thinking?

Lost in translation warning to all battle stations
Wide eyed words stay silent stay stunned

Look on Brothers
Look on Sisters
Look on Comrades

There is nothing to see here but my bondage
My suffering screened behind idealogical knowledge
Purity masking your contempt for the concept
This time we need to get it correct

What is a Brother?
It is you, it is me
What is a Sister?
It is her, it is him
What is a Comrade?
It is all of us.

An injury to one is an injury to all
Ignoring our suffering makes us cruel

Think Brother
Think Sister
Think Comrade

Next time you might be the one to fall
You will be caught by your comrades
Sheltered at the side of your sisters
And you shall battle beside your brothers

We are Brothers
We are Sisters
We are Comrades

For we are defined by our joint struggle
These words unite us and give us strength
They are actions never to be held in contempt

Goodbye Brothers
Goodbye Sisters
Goodbye Comrades

NukedPuked

Standard

Never again we said
As we bled red white and blue
Bodies barely going cold
Before more weapons are sold

No money for the old, infirm or sick
Who needs bread when we have bombs
These politicians think we’re so thick
Just look what good it did to Homs!

Red button bashing bullshitters
Puffing their chest to the sound of screams
Face melting bravado trendsetters
Presenting nightmares as your dreams

Give peace a chance a silly little stance
Dance to the devils war drum to your last
Duck and cover that mushroom blast
Our nation trapped in a nuclear trance

Corruption Capitalism

Standard

Creed of Capitalism
Is the greed of capitalism
Bringing about the fall of capitalism
There is no hope of reforming capitalism
We can only settle for abolishing capitalism
Solely because of the crimes of capitalism
Forget about the lies of capitalism
Focus on the destruction of capitalism
Socialism the only cure for capitalism

La Riot

Standard

The righteous riot when we have nothing left
The righteous riot because property is theft
The righteous riot give us our daily bread
The righteous riot because we end up dead
The righteous riot rulers never listen
The righteous riot unlawfully in prison
The righteous riot for the oppressed
The righteous riot society depressed
The righteous riot national corruption
The righteous riot justice eruption

The righteous riot
the righteous riot
when it’s our only option

Profit, suit you sire.

Standard

Cry out in despair as our futures reduced to ash
Prosperity for the powerful, poverty for all
The absurdity goes right to the core of the system
Obscurity of the button pushing power plays
Jack out remove your social programming

Subservient like a Victorian servant
It’s not prim and proper to make demands
Your betters know what’s best
You can’t know what’s in your own interest
So defer decision making all to me
I already have it with all this money
When push comes to shove you’ll see

There is profit in this poverty pyramid
Mind your step there are plenty of traps
But not for me I’m the lord with all the land
Have you got a light for my red tape bonfire
Now sit and wonder why we are all going ape

Lives are worthless, profit from the powerless
The mantra of the madman money men

Stand Together

Standard

On benefits struggling to pay bills
We stand with you!
Single mother working two jobs
We stand with you!
Grieving over the austerity kills
We stand with you!
Victim of the callous cuts
We stand with you!
Home made cell
We stand with you!
Freezing to death
We stand with you!
Empty cupboards
We stand with you!
No roof over your head
We stand with you!
Being driven to suicide
We stand with you!
Scapegoated citizens
We stand with you!

Stand together to know your strength
A thousand whispers make waves
Have no doubt they fear our unity
Stay silent no more!
Make our power known.

Deforestation

Magic money tree
give us a war
some trident missiles
plus the bankers want more

Oh magic money tree
we can’t do without
the fruits of our labour
give us the benefit of the doubt

Magic money tree
Its an autumn of austerity
A winter of discontent

Magic money tree
decimated a decade
