Song Meaning
Verse 1
What a waste of human power
What a waste of human lives
Shoot the prisoners in the towers
Forty-three poor widowed wives
Verse 2
Attica state, attica state
We're all mates with attica state
Verse 3
Media blames it on the prisoners
But the prisoners did not kill
"Rockefeller pulled the trigger"
That is what the people feel
Verse 4
Attica state, attica state
We're all mates with attica state
Verse 5
Free the prisoners, jail the judges
Free all prisoners everywhere
All they want is truth and justice
All they need is love and care
Verse 6
Attica state, attica state
We're all mates with attica state
Verse 7
They all live in suffocation
Let's not watch them die in sorrow
Now's the time for revolution
Give them all a chance to grow
Verse 8
Attica state, attica state
We're all mates with attica state
Verse 9
Come together join the movement
Take a stand for human rights
Fear and hatred clouds our judgment
Free us all from endless night
Verse 10
Attica state, attica state
We're all mates with attica state
Verse 11
Attica state, attica state
We all live in attica state
Verse 12
Attica state, attica state
Attica, attica, attica state
