Artist/Band: Flobots
Lyrics for Song: We Are Winning
Lyrics for Album: Fight With Tools [2008]



rival gangsters sit down to plan an after-school program

a religious fanatic posts footage of an interfaith service project

a group of teenage boys watches a video of a father playing catch with his son

an adult film star paints thumbnail portraits of elderly couples, fully clothed and smiling

a record executive records a demo of his apology

a policeman makes reverse 911 calls instructing residents to take to the streets

a patriot reports for duty

she's wearing an orange jumpsuit and holding a picket sign

she's ashamed of her birthplace

but retreat is not an option



women and children

frontline

logon

tune in

stand and be counted

wounded

stationed

in the belly of the vulture

watch your back

theres no civilians

women children

frontline

listen

consider this a distant early warning

the fires imminent

pollution gathering dust particles

funneling through smokestacks

airwaves

bandwidth

disinformation tube fed

check the label

delete the virus

alert the masses



butterfly wing crosswinds send black hawks toward hurricane survivors

roses sprout from empty lots and sidewalk cracks

pacifist guerrillas move undetected through concrete jungles

new forms are beginning to take shape

once-occupied minds are activating

people are waking up

the insurgency is alive and well



rise of the flobots

portrait of the new american insurgent

rattle and shake the foundation of the world order

assembly line consent

resist

refuse

inform

create

direct loved ones to the trenches

suit up

forge rubble into fortresses

plaster

cloth

aluminum

broken porcelain

rusted platinum

burn bloodstains from decompressed diamonds

hammer the battlecry into braille-studded armor



we are building up a new world

do not sit idly by

do not remain neutral

do not rely on this broadcast alone

we are only as strong as our signal

there is a war going on for your mind

if you are thinking you are winning

resistance is victory

defeat is impossible

your weapons are already in hand

reach within you and find the means by which to gain your freedom

fight with tools

your fate and that of everyone you know depends on it
