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 Commentits sad but true...we need to stop things like this from happening. we say our country is just.....but is it? i dont think so. we say we are civilized....but we have acted like savages in war. we say we learned from the past.....but *history repeats itself.* lose the government.
