The underdogs will rise
There can be no compromise
We gotta let them hear this lion roar
They bite the hand that feeds them
They think we need them
Believe us when we say that they need us more

Don't let their borders divide
We are international
Tear down the flags because we know it's irrational
To forge our allegiance at geography’s diktat, share
No cause with capital or plutocrats

When your 40 hour work-week earns you want, debt and poverty
No cups overflowing
In their trickle down economy
They don't think twice about a decade’s austerity
And throwing our futures away with this barbarity

So we got to take notion we can stop the trains
The ships on the ocean we can put in chains
Every wheel in creation, mine and mill
Fleets and armies of the nation
At our command will stand still
In a world of parasites
We could pull out the rug
We could brush them aside
Change up the order
Crying freedom for all
Harder they come, well the harder they fall

The surplus value we create sitting offshore
Economic lords, on the hoard we won’t kneel for
No more meek and agreeable
They built their paradise
By robbing working people, so
Stand up each generation, again and again
Lines are drawn, it's war with no end
Panama papering over the cracks
And thieving the shirts off our backs

To all the workers feeling too much pressure
We can drown the bastards, so spit together

Never to rest because our spectre will haunt them
Never feel relief from the heckles that taunt them
Fearing the day we stand shoulder to shoulder
Baring teeth growing fiercer and stronger and bolder
Silver bullet for the heart of the vampire
Our sweat and blood realise their desire no more
Let the new day come
Turn them to dust as we rise like the sun
