Track Name: I Would Rather Die Standing
I would rather die standing than live on my knees
and show some backbone to religious disease
I would rather die standing than live on my knees

bombastic teachings of a stone age tribe
violent preachings of a hateful scribe
they have a hit list of journalists
women and teachers, their evil persists

I would rather die standing than live on my knees
and show some backbone to religious disease
I would rather die standing than live on my knees
you hypocrites and cowards can try to appease

they want our silence, they want us in fear
they want our submission to the myth they hold dear
their hateful God that they serve with their guns
their treatment of women as slaves to their sons

I would rather die standing than live on my knees
and show some backbone to religious disease
I would rather die standing than live on my knees
you hypocrites and cowards can try to appease

the slaughter of teachers by the Taliban
atrocities committed in the service of man
how can you call it a religion of peace?
their Jihad demands submission or death but

I would rather die standing than live on my knees
and show some backbone to religious disease
I would rather die standing than live on my knees
you hypocrites and cowards can do as you please
but I would rather die standing than live on my knees

Track Name: Funkyfreddy with Tamra Hayden - Arizona Song
Arizona Song

No habla espanol in this town
No habla espanol in this bar
No habla espanol in our church

this is our Arizona song

No habla espanol in this store
No habla espanol in our state
No habla espanol in Wal Mart
this is our Arizona song

for we stole this land a long time ago
we stole it fair and square from the Mexicans, Apache, and Navaho
yes we stole this land a long time ago

No habla espanol in my yard
No habla espanol in our school
No habla espanol in our parks
this is our Arizona song x2

we'll have a tea party at the Alamo
and build a Berlin wall on the border
of the US and Mexico

No habla espanol in my yard
No habla espanol in our state
No habla espanol in this town
this is our Arizona song x2

no habla espanol.....
