lyrics

They say cutback, we say fightback
Cut back – fight back
Cut back – fight back
They say cutback, we say fightback
Cut back – fight back
Cut back – fight back

Fight back, Fight back, Fight back, Fight back,
Fight back, Fight back, Fight back, Fight back,

They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed

It is our duty to fight for our freedom
It is our duty to win
We must love and support one another
We have nothing to lose but our chains

Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em
Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em

In the UK two women a week on average are killed at the hands of a partner or ex-partner
Two women a week – murdered
Two women a week – murdered
Two women a week – murdered
Two women a week – murdered

They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed
They cut we bleed, They cut we bleed

To those in power, our message this
We stand against austerity
Your cuts are dangerous
We will not be silenced
We stand united
And fight together
And together we will win

Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em
Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em
Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em
Back up, back up, we want freedom, freedom
All these sexist racist cuts, we don’t need ‘em, need ‘em
