Scritta da Tom Robinson e Danny Kustow.
PowerintheDarkness

Un appello ai giovani, alle donne, ai gay ad unirsi nella lotta per i propri diritti, in particolare quello all’aborto e alla libera manifestazione della propria sessualità, contro “il veleno del pregiudizio che avvelena questa terra”, il veleno ogni giorno instillato dai fascisti del National Front e dai benpensanti razzisti ed omofobi che li sostengono.
Prejudice poison
Polluting this land
I'm a middle-class kiddie
But I know where I stand
We got brothers in Brixton
Backs to the wall
Bigots on the backlash
Divided we fall

But we ain't gonna take it
Ain't gonna take it
They're keeping us under
But we ain't gonna take it no more

Women with children
Have to carry the can
Till they lose them in divorce courts
To some pig of a man
We got Benyon and Whitehouse
Trying to get us stitched
Cos abortion and a gay scene
Only meant for the rich

But we ain't gonna take it
Ain't gonna take it
They're keeping us under
But we ain't gonna take it no more

Sisters and brothers
What have we done
We're fighting each other
Instead of the Front
Better get it together
Big trouble to come
And the odds are against us
About twenty to one

But we ain't gonna take it
Ain't gonna take it
They're keeping us under
But we ain't gonna take it no more
