(..Liam played harmonica on this track.. Absolutely hammered)

There's No War Like Class War
There's no war like a class war
There's no war like a class war..
When the worker's of the world
take possession of the means,
they'll be no war like a class war.

Industry, the great catastrophe
of the working man's -right to be free,
for the sweat that pours
while the fat cat snores,
will drown him while -he is asleep.

The wage system, the means of production,
were always meant to enslave us
But when the strikes are all struck
and the gears are all fucked,
they'll understand the situation.

There's no war like a class war,
There's no war like a class war
When the worker's of the world
take possession of the means,
they'll be no war like a class war

You capitalist, you're damn right I am pissed
A fair day's pay never meant quite this
May you never find peace
while we work these machines,
eyes closed, lungs full for your impossible dream.

Your material money driven world
isn't worth the paper it's printed on
So, love commodity
You can keep your property
It will never define me.

There's no war like a class war,
There's no war like a class war
When the worker's of the world
take possession of the means,
they'll be no war like a class war


And I'm not impressed with your version of success
I am owed more than just a check
There is no you - without us
Demands will be met -And we will not stop
We are starved for that “pie in the sky”
and if we don't get it we will unionize
You will know the sweet sting
that justice will bring
when no one dares cross a picket line.

There's no war like a class war,
There's no war like a class war,
When the worker's of the world
take possession of the means,
they'll be no war like a class war !
