Which Side Are You On?

Which Side Are You On?

Ani DiFranco

They stole a few elections,
Still we the people won
We voted out corruption and
Big corporations

We voted for an end to war
New direction
And We ain't gonna stop now
Until the job is done

Come on all good workers
This year is our time
Now there's folks in Washington
That care what's on our minds

Come one, come all voters
Lets all vote next time
Show 'em which side are you on now
Which side are you on

[Repeat: x4]
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

Thirty years of diggin'
Got us in this hole
The curse of reaganomics
Has finally taken it's toll

Lord knows the free market
Is anything but free
It costs dearly to the planet
And the likes of you and me

I don't need those money lenders
Suckin' on my tit
A little socialism
Don't scare me one bit!

We could do a whole lot worse
Than Europe or Canada
Come on Mr. president
Come on congress make the law

Which side are you on now
Which side are you on
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

They say in Orleans parish
There are no neutrals there
There's just too much misery
And there's too much despair

America who are we
Now our innocence is gone
Forgive us mother Africa
History's done you wrong

Too many stories written
Out in black and white
Yeah come on people of privilege
It's time to join the fight

Are we living in the shadow of slavery
Or are we moving on
Tell me which side are you on now
Which side are you on

Which side are you on now
Which side are you on
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on
Which side are you on boys
Which side are you on
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

My mother was a feminist
She taught me to see
That the road to ruin is paved
With patriarchy

So, let the way of women
Guide democracy
From plunder and pollution
Let mother earth be free

Feminism ain't about women
No, that's not who it is for
It's about a shifting consciousness
That'll bring an end to war

So listen up you fathers
Listen up you sons
And tell me which side are you on now
Which side are you on

[Repeat: x4]
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on

So are we just consumers
Or are we citizens
Are we gonna make more garbage
Or are we gonna make amends

Are you part of the solution
Or are you part of the con?
Which side are you on now
Which side are you on?
