Vieques, Puerto Rico

This song is by Anti-Flag and appears on the album Underground Network (2001).

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 responsibility!

Vieques, Puerto Rico, a protectorate -- of the USA.
Part a home for 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...

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 (eyes) remind me of another's,
From a different time and place...

Where A-Bombs baked the ground,
Of Bikini's tropical lands.
Where a culture was erased,
Families misplaced,
BY A NAZI-ESQUE LIKE PLAN!!

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 'bout time that we had a change...
I think it's 'bout time that WE MAKE A CHANGE!!
