285 Feet Tall This mind is watered down You'll drown behind these walls If I don't buy it, I'll just write it away My hands, my arms are made of wood With billion dollar strings I can be anything Your soil's just too rich This man, my man will get you sick I've got a lot of life to get If you don't need this, I'll just give it away My legs, my feet are solid lead I'm monument Did you hear what I said? Small words that kept you strong Remove, repair, replace that sound Van Gogh your ears and dumb this down If I can't fight it, I'll just make it go away My hands, my arms are made of wood With billion dollar strings I can be anything My legs, my feet are solid lead I'm monument DId you hear what I said? They meant

Humanity, you're breaking my heart I don't even know where to start And I'm too tired to riot I'm too tired to riot You repeat past mistakes You think you're so smart But you're tearing everything apart And I'm too tired to riot Yeah, I'm too tired to riot But if I could I'd set fire to this town I'd break every window I'd burn it all down If I could I'd set fire to this place And I'd warm myself In the fucking disgrace, but You'll never change You'll never see the need You'll never get it till you Burn or bleed But I'm too tired to riot Yeah, I'm too tired to riot So save your bullets Save your cans of tear gas I can't even get Up off my ass 'Cause I'm too tired to riot Yeah, I'm too tired to riot I'd set fire to this town I'd break every window I'd burn it all down If I could I'd set fire to this place And I'd warm myself In the fucking disgrace

You've got a mission, go where the bodies are A sure bet you've got a point to make A small incision and we can bleed it out A quick fix inside a useless break My time is not my own, and there's nothing to reclaim Slow reversal time, come & take what's mine Where's the dignity in this fifty-cent shell game? Universal law, a thorn in this year's paw If I don't close my eyes I might forget my name Slow reversal time, never have what's mine I've got a right to work For what the market tells me I'm worth There's something in the corner of my eye And I can't focus... Used to be so independent Sad excuses, failed intentions Own us all now & gouged our eyes out Took us all down, living without Fear of burning & selling it out World keeps turning with or without
4.
Here's what you are: You are theft and greed You strip the state And you beat the weak You leave us starving And you think we'll beg But look out, Scott Here come the dregs Showing you all Wisconsin's not gonna take it Showing you all the people aren't gonna take it Showing you all this union's not gonna take it What in the world do you think we'll do when we're starving? We are desperate We are sick and diseased When we see you We see meat Killed and eaten Pull flesh from the bone And leave your carcass To the animals We are starving
5.
You've done nothing for us You steal others' rights You benefit from higher up You take from the workers You're wrong You're wrong Give up

With impotent anger and furrowed brow Didn't vote for you then, won't vote for you now Open for business? (More like a) corporate cow Didn't vote for you then, won't vote for you now (You're just a) Koch-bro big-shot Ravens will roost on upon your rib cage As your body bakes in the sun Vines will grow over the windows Of a dented campaign bus (You're just a) Koch-bro big-shot (who) NEVER CUMS Don't let the door hit your bald spot (on the way out)

As bad as he seems, I wanna think that I'm not at the mercy of a bad man. Born in Colorado, the son of a pastor Lord, I wanna think I'm not at the mercy of a bad man. He keeps saying it'll be ok, But all my friends keep moving away to New York and L.A. Oh Lord, I wanna think I'm not at the mercy of a bad man. Dance around Governor, dance a little longer Yeah he done and murdered the goose, Yeah he done and murdered the gander Yeah I see you made it on TV, I see you're in the paper You'll never live it down now, not even if you live forever Keep saying it'll be ok But all my friends keep moving away to New York and L.A. Oh Lord, I wanna think I'm not at the mercy of a bad man. Who will be left to say that a better world is on its way?

This modern life Partitions what's important to us today Filtered down into a soup to distract a governed state Ten thousand things have our attention It feels safe to latch on to the pain But there's one question that still remains: HOW ABOUT "NO," SCOTT? And all I want to do is destroy your entire being You'll feel it twice as hard Take all of your ham and rolls Pitch a tent in your own backyard The hair on your head is going to need more than just a comb So sweetly shampooed by the Brothers in your pocket back home RECKLAW You puppet You motherfucker Fake flags and corporate interest Force fed without a mouth Petitioning terrorists Brought in from north and south Building walls all around us to keep Canadians out Boring bullshit propaganda Your timing is perfect You fucker You're closing it out RECKLAW The difference between me and you Is strangers that I've never met Won't shit and piss on my grave FUCK YOU

The numbers don't lie but maybe they don't have to Progress was never a part of your plan Another prop to control Just keep it out of our hands Bad form for taking it all for yourself At least the bigger they come We know the harder they fall down Step 1: Divide (You're down to conquer) Tell them you'll do it right (What do they need to hear?) Stick to the script, stick to the scripture Confirm the moral obligation When the ethics are unclear The numbers don't lie (Cause they don't have to) I must be losing my mind (Just take a deep breath) Try to relax you'll need the energy if you ever expect to make a difference There's too much here that needs attention If you're not mad as hell (You should be) This isn't common sense (Teach the test, test the rules) Trademark the words to change their meanings Because the education system seems to ask too many questions In America (We love the underdog) We know the bully better (The bully looks like us) Try to relax you'll need that energy intact If you ever make a difference We'll expect participation Wake up, look into all of the facts That consistently expose What evil does when it's around Bad form for taking it all for yourself At least the bigger they come We know the harder they fall down The numbers don't lie But they don't really have to If you're an asshole If you don't really care who it costs Maybe most of all I'm just disappointed Arguing is pointless GOD IS NOT AMERICAN I see a Christ complex Without the Christ like complications Empathy is weakness (I'm calling bullshit) "Power concedes nothing without a demand" No it's not our fault But it's become our problem to solve We just want to pull The wool of the wolves among the unheard We know your brass balls Will only slow you down When you run

Calling all tribes Calling all inhabitants We need a strike We need it now Calling all the human race Calling all the populace Nothing will change Unless we change it now Bring back the guillotines now! They won't stop until we cut off all the heads They won't stop! They won't stop! Bring us the heads now
12.
Scramble for naked scraps Your ambition rides Frigid birth violate And still we suffer Meanings Pass Only things that have meaning Sell the assets (Sun rises) Strip the seeds (Sun sets) Ideas released (Sun rises) Ideals poisoned (Sun sets) On the waves (Sun rises) Of omission (Sun sets) Sun shine on us all Sun silence us all

We come from a land of vision Wisconsin Idea philosophy To improve our health, environment, our whole citizen life quality He was born and raised a Baptist minister's son Then he sold his soul to Koch Brothers' control And the unraveling had begin We walks against us He stripped away living wage Raped us of our American dream Stealing from the poor and giving to the rich Job growth has failed miserably Twist the facts, cut the tax, stab the people in their backs While he pleads innocent and tries to justify all of his cutbacks He walks against us Replaced unions with right to work Go back to 1870 14 hours a day, 6 days a week, dying early from poverty Not only teachers, but children suffer If they can't afford school privately After he took from our education And handed it out to the wealthy We walks against us We stand here UNINTIMIDATED Despite the fear that you may drive We see right through your scandals With private enterprise We won't stand for your bullshit We won't stand for your lies We will rise above, fight for the land we love Fight for our human rights He walks against us [RANT!]

ad Wolf, red river, turning over what what he's eating Down here, there's an island, sort of an inlet with deer feeding He cries, closes his eyes, for miles around they hear Look high, up towards the sky, as far as the eye can see Trees and eagles even At once he wants a great divide We fall to our knees and cry This poor old river was Bad Wolf came biting, rewriting and deleting Up here it's a hard life, sort of a bad life we're leading The blame a moth to flame. A farmer can’t tame a beast. Dead game, you feel the shame. He’s lying it at your feet, You need it, but you won't eat it At once he wants a great divide We fall to our knees and cry This poor old river dries It’s poison to the river It pours into the river

about

UNINTIMIDATED: Wisconsin Musicians Against Scott Walker is a group of
Wisconsin bands who convened in late August, 2015 to record a
rapid-fire series of protest songs condemning Wisconsin governor Scott
Walker. Each band had a two-hour block of time to record their song at
Howl Street Studios in Milwaukee. Proceeds from the sale of this product will be donated to Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and Milwaukee soup kitchens in the interest of assisting the lower-income citizens most threatened by Scott Walker's regressive policies.
