Courage to Resist

Vic Sadot
Lingua: Inglese



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 !

Wikileaks released a video
of a US murder spree!
With pilots joking and slaughtering
civilian Iraqis !
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 !

Long live GI Resistance!
To the lies and tyranny!
For with wisdom and persistence!
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!

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!

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!

Long live GI Resistance
to the lies and tyranny!
For with wisdom and persistence!
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!

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!

Long live GI Resistance!
To the lies and tyranny!
For with wisdom and persistence!
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!

IF WE – HAVE THE COURAGE – TO RESIST !
