The Style Council

If you believe you have an equal share
In the whole wide world and all it bears
An' that your share is no less or more than

Your fellow sisters and brother man
Then take this knowledge and with it insist
Declare yourself, an internationalist

If you lay no blame at the feet of next door
An' realize this struggle is also yours
An' that without the strength of us altogether

The world as it stands will remain forever
Then take this challenge and make it exist
Rise up as an internationalist

If your eyes see deeper than the color of skin
Then you must also see we are the same within
An' the rights you expect are the rights of all

Now it's up to you to lead the call
That liberty must come at the top of the list
Stand proud as an internationalist

If you see the mistake in having bosses at all
You will also see how they all must fall
For under this system there is no such thing

As the democracy our leaders would have us sing
No time for lies now as only truth must persist
Rise up now and declare yourself, an internationalist
