You and me, we've got a lot of work to do
But a great wall of power is crossing our path
In this uphill struggle, yes, uphill struggle
We must keep our spirit high and never give in

And if you still believe in the government
Watch them kiss ass on the business élite
There is no place for our dreams
In a "democracy" ruled by the privileged few

WE'VE GOT TO FIND OUR STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
AND CARRY ON
WE'LL DO WHAT WE CAN TO SUCCEED
IN THIS UPHILL STRUGGLE
TAKE CONTROL OVER SOCIETY'S RESOURCES
AND ONCE FOR ALL
DISMANTLE THE GOVERNMENT
AND TAKE BACK OUR FREEDOM

We can reorganize the economy
On a cooperative and decentralized basis
Installed with the values of freedom
Equality and mutual aid

WE'VE GOT TO…

"The government is not neutral, but an ally to the bosses"

We must break with this system that brings us down
Refuse to collaborate with these scumbags
So organize, strike, fight, work - together
'Cause as long as there's will, there's always hope

WE'VE GOT TO…
