Anti-Flag - Vieques, Puerto Rico: Bikini Revisited Lyrics




All united, all as one, let's make a stand...
We've got a privilege in the power that we command !
So let's not drown in ignorance,
And let our strenght waste away...
As the richest nation in the world, we've got a responsibility !

Vieques, Puerto Rico, a pretectorate -- of the USA.
Part a home for native families, the rest...
A NAVY BOMBING RANGE !!

Shells misfired kill civilians there,
And napalm hangs in the island air.
But the government beats down protests against this misuse...

So...

STAND UP, FIGHT BACK, RESIST-REFUSE !!
'Cause if we don't do it, no one's going to...
So,
STAND UP, FIGHT BACK, RESIST-REFUSE !!
'Cause if we don't do it, no one's going to...

I look into the eyes, of a dead island boy's face.
His (eyes) remind me of another's,
From a different time and place...

Where A-Bombs baked the ground,
Of Bikini's tropical lands.
Where a culture was erased,
Families misplaced,
BY A NAZI-ESQUE LIKE PLAN !!!

All done, in your name, by Uncle Sam...
So if we don't fight it, then we're guilty to !

So...

STAND UP, FIGHT BACK, RESIST-REFUSE !!
'Cause if we don't do it, no one's going to...

I think it's 'bout time that we had a change...
I think it's 'bout time that WE MAKE A CHANGE !!

    I learned about this from a punk rock song when I was in 8th grade. Through an Honors US History course Junior year and a US History 1939-Present Senior year I never learned anything about this...

  2. Jorge Barrientos

    one of the best punk rock songs ever !!!

  3. Chew Bacca

    ALL UNITED, ALL AS ONE, LETS MAKE A STAND.....AGAINST THE NEO COMMIES WHO ARE BRINGING US THE FUCK DOWN...NOT THROUGH A NATIONALIST POINT OF VIEW BUT AS A WORLD WIDE POV.....FUCK THE SYSTEM!

  4. _Gibran _Lucas_

    Not many people know about this but USA seriously fucked up Vieques and the worst part is that nobody helped us fight, so we fought back and kicked them out.

    I looked for the lyrics to this song not so long ago and saw an add pop up about bush's haiti fund. I wonder if why it wloudn't be an add about a fund for killing innocent iraqies instead
