All united, all as one, let's make a stand. We've got a privilege in the power that we command. So let's not drown in ignorance and let our strength waste away. As the richest nation in the world, we've got a responsability.

Vieques, puerto rico, a protectorate - of the USA. Part a home to native families, the rest... A navy bombing range! Shells misfired kill civilians there, and napalm hangs in the island air. But the government beats down protests against this misuse.

Chorus: So... Stand up! Fight back! Resist-Refuse! Cause if we don't do it no one's going to. So... Stand up! Fight back! Resist-Refuse! Cause if we don't do it no one's going to.

I look into the eyes, of a dead island boy's face. His remind me of another's, from different time and place. Wehre A-bombs baked the ground, on Bikini's tropical lands. Where a culture was erased, families misplaced, by a Nazi-esque like plan!

Chorus: All done, in your name, by Uncle Sam. So if we don't fight it - then we're guilty too! So... Stand up! Fight back! Resist-Refuse! Cause if we don't do it, no one's going to.

I think it's about time that we had a change. I think it's about time that we make a change.

    General Commentyou know whats amazing is that you would never hear about vieques or anything remotely similar to it on the news in AMERICA. its all over the place in other countries, but noone has even heard of vieques. how many people were arrested protesting? even fucking celebrities.. ricky martin! down there protesting.. and nothing. noone knows that it even happened. then the us pulls the whole naval station out of puerto rico out of spite... and takes away a primary source of revenue. goddamnfuckingamericangoverningwhores. fuck you.
