Been meetin' in the back room
Been gatherin' in the parking lot
Been talkin' in the break room
Of what we are doing with what we've got

Been meetin' on the front lawn
Been gatherin' in the parking lot
Been talkin' in the break room
Of labor and unrest and eyeing the clock

Are you okay with what you've got?

We're throwin' down our push brooms
We're hangin' up our apron ties
We're comin' from the back roads
Out of the fields and the factory lines

Mutiny!

We're throwin' down our push brooms
We're hangin' up our apron ties
We're comin' from the back roads
Out of the fields and the factory lines

Tell your brother and your sister
Tell your auntie and your uncle too
Tell your mother and your father
Your friends and your cousins, "We need you"

Strike!
Strike!

We're throwin' down our push brooms
We're hangin' up our apron ties
We walked so far
But we can walk all night

We're marchin' from the shipyards
We're marchin' from the hospitals
We'll take you to the town hall
We'll take you to the capital

Tell your brother and your sister
Tell your auntie and your uncle too
Tell your mother and your father
Your friends and your cousins, "We need you"

Strike!
Strike!

We're throwin' down our push brooms
We're hangin' up our apron ties
We walked so far
But we can walk all night

We're comin' from the back roads
Out of the fields and the factory lines

    General CommentI love the groove of this song. Very well done, and very very catchy. A bit unexpected from Pretty Girls Make Graves, but they really pull it off. Not so sure about the rest of the album, though. :(
