The Working Class Revolution EP
working
From Ireland to Venezuela
From Germany to Kurdistan
All the workers are downing their tools
And raising the blood-red flag
In the spirit of internationalism
Millions of comrades standing as one
Now’s the time to smash the system
So we can build a new on

Cuz we've nothing to lose but our chains
So we'll fight through the days that remain
And we're willing to lay down our lives if that's what it takes
We've nothing to lose but our chains

From China to Greece it is building
Our demands will not go unheard
We’ll put an end to these capitalists
Before they swallow up our world
So go join the worker’s collectives
Find a union and raise your voice
Stand on the front lines with your comrades behind
Overthrow the system then rejoice

Cuz we've nothing to lose but our chains
So we'll fight through the days that remain
And we're willing to lay down our lives if that's what it takes
We've nothing to lose but our chains

In India and in Uganda
In Turkey and in Vietnam
The working class is working fast
Retaking all their land
No army can stop this movement
No government can stand in the way
A peace at last will come to pass
This is their judgement day

Cuz we've nothing to lose but our chains
So we'll fight through the days that remain
And we're willing to lay down our lives if that's what it takes
We've nothing to lose but our chains

From Catalonia to Copenhagen
From the Punjab down to Nepal?
We have no fear, we smile and cheer
As we knock down their border walls
So let the prisoners out of their cages
Tell their families their loved ones are free
The time has come to disarm their bombs
For the sake of humanity

Cuz we've nothing to lose but our chains
So we'll fight through the days that remain
And we're willing to lay down our lives if that's what it takes
We've nothing to lose but our chains
