UNION THUGS /// UNION THUGS /// UNION THUGS /// UNION THUGS

l était une fois,
Comme dans n’importe quelle histoire,
D’un côté les hommes de loi,
Et de l’autre, les piqueteuses de la gloire.
Laï, Laï, Laï

Nous étions de celles qui marchent,
Pour prouver qu’on se tient debout,
Malgré le froid et les sarcasmes,
On était riches sans un sou,
On était riches sans un sou.

[REFRAIN]

L’hiver est long au Canada,
Mais la chaleur qui nous anime,
Est celle qu’attise le combat,
De vouloir combler cet abîme,
Qui nous sépare des faux rois.

[REFRAIN]

Et de faire sauter leurs palais,
Et puis qu’ils rampent comme des rats,
D’avoir osé nous mépriser,
Ils sont souris, nous sommes chats,
Et notre chasse est liberté.

[REFRAIN]

Crois en la force des travailleurs,
Ces anonymes cachés dans l’ombre,
Leur voix est celle qui vient du coeur,
Ils se relèvent des décombres,
Et ils construisent en s’unissant,
Une vie nouvelle qui est à eux.

[REFRAIN]

BACK BREAKER /// BACK BREAKER /// BACK BREAKER /// BACK BREAKER 

A Forest, A Fire, A Suit, A Liar.
A Banker, A Bully, Our Streets Unruly.
A Pipeline, A Profit, Our Movement, Can’t Stop It.
Our Oceans Are Burning, Our Hearts Are Yearning.
A Future For All, For Old, For Small.
Raise Your Fist, Raise Your Voice,
We Don’t Have A Choice!
United We Stand, Divided We Fall.
They May Stop One But They Can’t Stop Us All!

(Chorus) x2
What Are You Going To Do?
When Your Lies Catch Up With You?
What Are You Going To Do?
When The Boot Boys Come After You?

We Work, We Die, They Profit, They Lie.
We Strap On Our Boots, While They Tie Up Their Ties.
We Stand, WE Fight, We Picket, We March.
They Sit On Their Thrones But This is How It Starts.
The Young, The Old, The Hungry, The Cold.
Separate We Are Nothing, But Together We Are Bold.
Tear Down Their Borders, Our Voices Are One.
The People My Rifle, This World Is Our Gun!

(Chorus) x2
What Are You Going To Do?
When Your Lies Catch Up With You?
What Are You Going To Do?
When The Boot Boys Come After You?

// Break \\

(Chorus) x2
What Are You Going To Do?
When Your Lies Catch Up With You?
What Are You Going To Do?
When The Boot Boys Come After You?

THE FALLOUT /// THE FALLOUT /// THE FALLOUT /// THE FALLOUT

Raise your flag, Raise it high
Let them look you in the eye
Side by side
Show your pride
Wave your flag, wave your flag
Raise your flag, Raise it high
And when they look you in the eye
Wave your flag, wave your flag, wave your flag

Double standards of the hypocrites
They condescend as you bite your lip
You’re in my heart
You’re on my mind
You don’t have to take that shit

On the horizon is a new frontier
If you feel alone or you’re getting scared
With all your spirit
And all your soul
You know there is nothing to fear

Sing if you’re glad to be gay

Homophobes are just a dying breed
As they cling to an illegitimate creed
You’re in my heart
You’re on my mind
They offer nothing that you can believe

All their hate they never take a rest
Stunning ignorance takes away your breath
With all your spirit
And all your soul

Resolve that you’ll never forget

To sing if you’re happy that way.

BARBED WIRE BRACES /// BARBED WIRE BRACES /// BARBED WIRE BRACES ///

What does it say about American Society The land of milk and honey The land of the free They say they want their freedom back They want to be free But thats not how it seems to me Return of the messiah Pathological lier Out of the frying pan Into the fire They claim to have the answer Prepared to sell their soul Make a deal with the devil Just do as their told

THEY CALL IT CHAOS /// THEY CALL IT CHAOS /// THEY CALL IT CHAOS ///

Leaving opportunities behind. Got fired again for speaking my mind. Is there someplace out there, a place where I might even be welcomed in with opens arms even though I set off your alarms every time I open up my mouth to speak? I need a workplace democracy, where I can do the work that I agree to and noone threatens to throw me off the street. I need a workplace democracy where I’ll be standing in solidarity. We are the workers, and we’re standing on our feet. Our blood, and our sweat, built this world. It’s time to unite. Let’s take it back. We’ll make shelves and stuff for Walmart, hide our info on their shopping carts. And when they drive their workers away, they’ll know exactly where to turn to find a workplace democracy.
