A tribute to Bradley Manning, GI Resistance, and wikileaks for exposing and opposing the lies, war crimes, and cover-ups of the corporate empire.

lyrics

Courage To Resist

You know Private Bradley Manning was only twenty-two!
But because he had a conscience, he knew what to do!
He became a whistle-blower when he let his conscience speak!
By documenting war crimes and cover-ups to wikileaks!
Cause he had the courage to resist!
Yes! He had the courage to resist!

Chorus:
Long live GI Resistance! To the lies and tyranny!
For with wisdom and persistance! In Truth we shall be free!
Long live People's insistence on being all that we can be!
Yes! And we can be together! Live in Peace and Harmony!
If we have the courage to resist!
If we have the courage to resist!

Wikileaks released a video of a US murder spree!
With pilots joking and slaughtering civilian Iraquis!
Two news men died in the bullet spray! Two children were all chewed up!
Too many blood soaked scenes like that by men who are all screwed up!
Do we have the courage to resist?
Yes! We have the courage to resist! (CHORUS)

Nichol Mitchell had a conscience! And like a flower it bloomed in Iraq!
She became a Conscientious Objector, and for that she took a lot of flack!
Well, the Army tried to keep her as an occupation tool!
But she opposed the oppressors cause she ain't nobody's fool!
Cause she had the courage to resist!
Yes! She had the courage to resist! (CHORUS)

Did you hear about "The Hip-Hop Soldier"? Who stood against the "Stop Loss" Draft?
They tried to hold him beyond enlistment! They just issued an order and laughed!
But Marc Hall had supporters! And they waged a strong campaign!
And instead of a harsh court-martial, they let him go home again!
Cause he had the courage to resist!
Yes he had the courage to resist! (CHORUS)

They put young Bradley in a prison! And they employed their cruel techniques!
If you care and you can reason, and you dare to be one who speaks...
You may be put in isolation by a system so rotten it reeks!
Of lies and exploitation! So long live wikileaks!
Cause they have the courage to resist!
Yes! They have the courage to resist! (CHORUS with last 2 lines repeated slow with stops)
