Solidarity

This song is by Angelic Upstarts and appears on the album Lost and Found (1991).

We the shipwrights and the dockers here we stand
And behind us every worker hand in hand
We'll get independent unions that are free from partyminions
When we win we'll build a free and happy land

Dear god, dear god, dear god let this strike, cruel strike carry on
Though they cling to their fiction and they want our crucifixion
We shall stand every pain till we are done

All our women and our children stand with us and we'll stand
Come tanks, starvation, tear gas
We'll get independent unions that are free from partyminions
Nothing will deter the polish working class

Dear god, dear god, dear god let this strike, cruel strike carry on
Though they cling to their fiction and they want our crucifixion
We shall stand every pain till we are done

Wired camps, crooked courts, prison cells
Swollen faces, broken bones and bloody hands
We'll get independent unions that are free from partyminions
They can kill us and we'll never, never be quelled

Dear god, dear god, dear god let this strike, cruel strike carry on
Though they cling to their fiction and they want our crucifixion
We shall stand every pain till we are done

Those who have and have-not are apart but don't explain
Because you would not know where to start
Face realities my brother only we can help each other
Join with us and we shall give you some heart

Dear god, dear god, dear god let this strike, cruel strike carry on
Though they cling to their fiction and they want our crucifixion
We shall stand every pain till we are done

Dear god, dear god, dear god let this strike, cruel strike carry on

Many of those of us who are lucky to be free
Will not speak, will not hear, they will not see
They would help after a fashion but are scarred of repercussions
We'll fight all alone as long as it need be

Dear god, dear god, dear god let this strike, cruel strike carry on
Though they cling to their fiction and they want our crucifixion
We shall stand every pain till we are done

Dear god, dear god, dear god let this strike, cruel strike carry on
Dear god, dear god, dear god let this strike, cruel strike carry on
