Stand up all victims of oppression
Don't cling so hard to your possessions
Let racist ignorance be ended
Freedom is merely privilege extended

So come brothers and sisters
The internationale
So comrades come rally
The international ideal

Walls of hatred nor walls of stone
We'll live together or we'll die alone
Those who have taken now they must give
We've but one earth on which to live
And so begins the final drama
We stand unbowed before their armor
When we fight provoked by their aggression
For though they offer us concessions
