The once steel tough fabric of the union man
Was sold and bartered all away
Fed to money wolves in the Reagan years
Caught in a drift in greedy ninetie's days
So inside this song is our rally cry

Your dreams are in danger
And we must rise
Our time has come we are under the gun
It's do or die

It's not a rebel cry of some socialist scheme
To push for human rights
Just the facts an obvious mentioned
On the behalf of the working man
For his family and his livelihood

Your dreams are in danger
And we must rise
Our time has come we are under the gun
It's do or die

The once steel tough fabric of the union man
Was sold and bartered away
Fed to money and wolves in the Reagan years
Caught adrift in greedy nineties days

Your dreams are in danger
And we must rise
Our time has come we are under the gun
It's do or die
