Seekers of the Truth, stand bravely! For they create a land of need.
They wield the whip of poverty, and promote the growth of Greed.
The millionaires are singing to the beating of the drums,
See the building of their mansions, and the spreading of the slums.
Roll a wave of battle music from the east unto the west,
’Till it finds the homeless veteran, ‘till it fires his lowly breast.
Fight the politicians’ cruelty! Claim the rights that they begrudge!
Have the angels for a jury, and the King of Kings the judge.
It is more than just the present, it’s the future that we fight,
To prevent the lowly peasant crushed beneath the heel of Might.
Seekers of the Truth, stand bravely! For your worthy cause is grand.
You are standing for your freedom, fighting for your children’s land.
Break the old financial systems that support the rich man‘s lies.
Spread the truth ‘till tens of thousands march together and uprise.
Slowly, surely, onward going, the resistance growing strong,
Sweeping all the lies aside, let the tide of truth flow on.
Raise the sound of battle music, for each woman, child, and man,
So it rings across the oceans to the poor of other lands.
Let the poets and the writers stand for truth against the lies
Until words of TRUTH and FREEDOM are blazed across the skies.
