vieques, puerto rico bikini revisited lyrics – anti-flag

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 u.s.a.
part a home to native families
the rest a navy bombing range
sh*lls 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 different time and place
where a-bombs baked the ground
on 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
i think it’s ’bout time that we had a change, yeah
i think it’s ’bout time that we make a change, yo
i think it’s ’bout time that we had a change
now, i think it’s ’bout time that we make a change
make a change, a change, a change
about time we had a change, time for change
about time we make a change, time for change
about time we make a change, change
about time we make a, we make a change
