lyrics

We SHALL Overcome
We have to
It's as simple as that.
No-one in power will stoop down this low
From their Ivory Tower to help us you know
And your history books, they will all tell you so.
We must take up the struggle ourselves.

We SHALL Overcome
We have no choice.
A voice lost in silence
Just incites the violence of class war waged from on high
Unleashing a rage of lie upon lie
In a storm of statistics which abuse and decry
And prove nothing
Except what they were made for
Sought and bought and paid for

We SHALL Overcome
With a raised fist and a helping hand
For we understand that THIS paves our path
Let compassion fashion out a future from this heartless past
That today breathes its last
For tomorrow has yet to be written
