[Jody intro]
I think we all have a duty to stand up and make our voices heard and to fight against what the government are doing

[Chorus]
I get down for my people
Down for my people
Down with the government until we're all equal
Down with the media
And the corporations
I am not down with invading these nations
Stand up for my people
Up for my people
Fist in the sky until we're all equal
We need more meetings, more demonstrations
Occupy parliament
This is our nation

[Logic verse 1]
See I'm down for equality
Down to abolish the lottery
Down with all the government's policies
Silly me to believe no more tuition fees
Nine grand when there's still soldiers in the Helmland
Lines of division in Palestine and Kashmir
Afghanistan
But who put the lines there?
See we created that
Civil war wasn't born and we made it a fact
The news releases pictures saying that we're violent
But it we're not violent, the media is silent
We've still got British soldiers occupying Ireland
And they wonder why we're still fighting
We're fighting for the third world and everyone who lives there
Fighting the feds who pulled Jody out his wheelchair
We're fighting for justice, I'm fighting for unity
Bottom line is I'm fighting for you and me

[Chorus]
I get down for my people
Down for my people
Down with the government until we're all equal
Down with the media
And the corporations
I am not down with invading these nations
Stand up for my people
Up for my people
Fist in the sky until we're all equal
We need more meetings, more demonstrations
Occupy parliament
This is our nation

[Logic verse 2]
Cos these are my people and this is our nation
Too many people have died in fed stations
The US, they have got too many military bases
In places, where they're not welcome faces
It's gone past racism
It's imperialism, capitalism and straight hatred
How can we change this?
Ideally we'd take the whole concept of money and erase it
But this is not feasible
But at the bare minimum
All of our people are equal
The rich man's the same as the poor
But the poor man still gets ignored
And we're not the same as the law
But the real criminals are the ones that are making the wars
The companies that are funding the wars
Are the ones we are targettng for
Let's get 'em

[Chorus]
I get down for my people
Down for my people
Down with the government until we're all equal
Down with the media
And the corporations
I am not down with invading these nations
Stand up for my people
Up for my people
Fist in the sky until we're all equal
We need more meetings, more demonstrations
Occupy parliament
This is our nation

[Jody]
We should be fighting for equality of all people, irrespective of race, religion, gender, wealth or physical ability.

[Lowkey]
We must also be 100% clear that while they are talking about cutting spending here, cutting jobs there, cutting benefits here, cutting EMA there, we also have to realise that this country is involved in the occupation of Afghanistan and the full-fledged support of Israel

[Jody]
And this is the central issue at the core of every conflict that is happening. You could not justify killing billions of people in wars around the world unless you considered those people inferior to yourself.

[Lowkey]
But honestly, at the end of the day, we must always take it back to this, and it's a quote from someone called Frederick Douglass. He said: "power concedes nothing without demand". So we must demand, demand, demand, demand, demand. Thank you very much.
