Track Name: Red Light Union
Union! Union! Ooooohhh!

Criminalized and ostracized
No respect for the lives of the working girls
Trivialized and left to die
No respect for the lives of the working girls
No one is safe tonight
No respect for the lives of the working girls
We need to make it right
And show respect for the lives of the working girls

Culture of fear
Culture of hate
Proliferating violence
Legislating rape

Union! Union! Ooooohhh!

Marginalized and stigmatized
No respect for the lives of the working girls
Pathologized and cast aside
No respect for the lives of the working girls
3rd class citizens
No respect for the lives of the working girls
Hostile work conditions
Show some respect for the lives of the working girls

Culture of fear
Culture of hate
Proliferating violence
Legislating rape

Union! Union! Ooooohhh
Track Name: Walk In The Sun
Lyrics by Paul Sebastianelli

They say freedom’s just another word for nothing left to sell
Freedom’s a word we never learn to say very well
They may hold us down
Kick us down to the ground
The days gonna come when we’ll take a walk in the sun

You can come and find death in the Salvadoran hills
You’ve got to learn to die, before you learn how to kill
They may take our homes
In darkness we will roam
The days gonna come when we’ll take a walk in the sun

If I had a hammer, I would hammer everyday
The biggest hammers here are sold by the CIA
But they won’t sell them to me
They don’t believe in democracy
The days gonna come when we’ll take a walk in the sun
Track Name: Raise Your Flag
Raise your flag, Raise it high
Let them look you in the eye
Side by side
Show your pride
Wave your flag, wave your flag
Raise your flag, Raise it high
And when they look you in the eye
Wave your flag, wave your flag, wave your flag

Double standards of the hypocrites
They condescend as you bite your lip
You’re in my heart
You’re on my mind
You don’t have to take that shit

On the horizon is a new frontier
If you feel alone or you’re getting scared
With all your spirit
And all your soul
You know there is nothing to fear

Sing if you’re glad to be gay

Homophobes are just a dying breed
As they cling to an illegitimate creed
You’re in my heart
You’re on my mind
They offer nothing that you can believe

All their hate they never take a rest
Stunning ignorance takes away your breath
With all your spirit
And all your soul

Resolve that you’ll never forget

To sing if you’re happy that way.
Track Name: Wage Slave
Wage! Slave!

I'm getting hungry and they're raising my rent
I got my paycheque but it's already spent
My hands are tied because they're clocking my time
Selling my life away for nickels and dimes

I'm a wage slave
Nothing more
Wage slave
Working poor

Wage! Slave!

From bull to bear the economy's crashed
That's why they can't pay us any more cash
Hard to get by on this minimum wage
Indentured life I can't escape
