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.

Track Name: Haunted Heads - 285 Feet Tall
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
Track Name: FowlMouth - Too Tired to Riot
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
Track Name: Body Futures - Right to Work
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
Track Name: Drillers - Starving
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
Track Name: Volunteer - Wrong
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
Track Name: Soup Moat - Open for Strabismus
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)
Track Name: Lady Cannon - A Bad Man
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?
Track Name: Holy Shit! - How About "No," Scott?
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
Track Name: Heavy Hand - White Power Norah Jones
Ask Tony what the lyrics are
Track Name: Midwest Death Rattle - What's Wrong With the Right (2 Work it)?
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
Track Name: IfIHadAHiFi - Bring Back the Guillotines
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
Track Name: Tyranny is Tyranny - Three Point Program to Destroy Wisconsin
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
Track Name: Donoma - Walk(er) Against Us
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!]
Track Name: Venus in Furs - Left Mitten
Sailor Dexter wearing tight white pants
Miner Sinister a man of romance
Holding hands behind the golden shield
Their love that forever sealed

Hello, it’s nice to see you again
Please help us to save Wisconsin

Me! Oh! My! Left mitten
Me! Oh! My! I’m smitten

Wielding rope and a mean pickaxe
Fighting back when we’re under attack
Protecting Sconnies from the Legislature
Plowing forward to a better future

Hello, it’s nice to see you again
Please help us to save Wisconsin

Beep. Beep beep. Beep boop beep.

Boys of the flag of blue
What are you gonna do?
We need a rescue

Sifting the bad ones out
Winnowing chaff no doubt
Idea’s got major clout

Me as a citizen
Oh how do I begin
My love of Wisconsin
Track Name: Damsel Trash - Scott Walker, You're a Piece of Shit
Scott Walker, you're a piece of shit
You're a piece of shit
Hey eat a bag of dicks
Scott Walker, you're a piece of shit
You're a piece of shit
Hey eat a bag of dicks

Get out of my vag!
Get out of my vag!
Get out of my vag!
Suck my left one

Scott Walker, get out of my state
Get out of my state
Why you gotta hate?
Scott Walker, get out of my state
Get out of my state
Why you gotta hate?

Get out of my vag!
Get out of my vag!
Get out of my vag!
Suck my left one

Scott Walker, you're such an ass
Such a gaping ass
You ain't got no class
Scott Walker, you're such an ass
Such a gaping ass
Now suck my right one

Get out of my vag!
Get out of my vag!
Get out of my vag!
Suck my left one
Track Name: Testa Rosa - Bad Wolf
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
