Track Name: FAN THE FLAMES
That's the man you gotta give it to
we pay him our rent to have a hole in our roof
and when our neighbors burned
it was only because of telephone cords

Trash on sidewalks, broken windowpanes,
the pipes are leaking
they ain't gonna fix it 'til it's too far gone
they're gonna wash us away
we've got to say

you've got to fan the flames
you've got to stand up and break the chains
make a plan and demand what the damage pays
fan the flames

in the dark and the bitter cold
they're freezing us out, it's as good as gold
between the vacant homes
are fancy doorbells wrapped with ribbon and bow

getting hard to stay in tune
the boys are getting me down, i'll be staying in my room
but when the yuppies push us out
the boys are picking me up and sticking around

that's the man you gotta give it to
time and time again he plays us for a fool
and when our neighbors burned
the realtors shook hands with their backs turned
Track Name: TRAVELIN ON
oh baby, gotta get out the map,
i'm somewhere down I can't find
I been watchin the clock
anyplace but not the right time yeah
and under the sun
lace up my boots and go on
gotta strike the match
let it burn

when all the smoke was clearing out
oh yeah, I was on my own.
I ain't coming home to you.
I was born to roam the streets
Yeah
They say a man lives in chains but he is born free
he's born free
I was in the thick of it, boy, I was in the pines
I followed a crippled creek back to the source and I went inside
And now i'm inside

the days been growing stranger
I been holdin' up fists of rage and I need a change
But you been getting lazy this time
I got you dead to rights and i'm ready to fight
Track Name: WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON
Been trying for the heart of me
you know we ain't livin' up on easy street
if you need a friend, lord knows
I been down'n'out again and again
who will fall?
And who's gonna answer when they get that call?
So hold it close, keep it safe
I know that you'll be with us
when we make them pay

I see you and I know what's at stake
You see me and you know we can't wait
like so many before us, we find ourselves
one with the history behind us and once again
with the rich and the cops against us

where ya gonna be in a year or two?
I'm not gonna let 'em get the best of you
it's not too late
but what you're gonna do, that's up for debate
whose side are you on?
The factory wheels'll keep spinnin along
it ain't cut and dried
and it never will
but the fightin' baby that's half of the thrill
Track Name: BUTTON UP
when you see something that makes you sick
do you button up or do you bleed?
Well I don't claim to know what's right
but I can see there's a growing need
at what point is enough enough
and do I walk away?

I'm taking time whatever I do
i'm working hard whatever I do
with you

I know they don't like the way that I walk
don't like the way that I talk
don't like the clothes that I wear
don't like the way that I cut my hair

I won't bow my head to another man
I won't bite my lip and curtsy
what's binding us together
ain't no common sense or decency
and my name will be on your lips
on your dying day

you don't know who you're tanglin with
i'm a bad bitch if I please
i've done it before and i'll do it again
I brought many a man to his knees
i'll look you in the eyes
and tell you what I gotta say
