What a waste of human power
What a waste of human lives
Shoot the prisoners in the towers
Forty-three poor widowed wives

Attica state, attica state,
Were all mates with attica state

Media blames it on the prisoners
But the prisoners did not kill
Rockefeller pulled the trigger
That is what the people feel

Attica state, attica state,
Were all mates with attica state

Free the prisoners, jail the judges
Free all prisoners everywhere
All they want is truth and justice
All they need is love and care

Attica state, attica state,
Were all mates with attica state

They all live in suffocation
Lets not watch them die in sorrow
Nows the time for revolution
Give them all a chance to grow

Attica state, attica state,
Were all mates with attica state

Come together join the movement
Take a stand for human rights
Fear and hatred clouds our judgement
Free us all from endless night

Attica state, attica state,
Were all mates with attica state

Attica state, attica state,
We all live in attica state

Attica state, attica state,
Attica, attica, attica state
