lyrics

It sways in the wind, 13’s your lucky number
Your sentence is death, You’re gonna be murdered
Dressed to kill with the hangman’s noose
There’s no time now for breaking loose
Say your last words as the scaffold drops
Your shadow hangs over the smiling cops
Cut the rope and fall to the ground
The Corporate Gallows, they won this round

August Spies: He was out for revenge
Albert Parsons: He evaded arrest.
Adolph Fisher: Came armed and dangerous
George Engel: An out and out Militarist
Louis Lingg: He killed himself and did not hang.

“Hurrah for anarchy!” Engel cried, “This is the happiest moment of my life”
The Haymarket martyrs, we remember you, too
Cuz the Corporate Gallows took the lives from you!

It sways in the wind, 13’s your lucky number
Your sentence is death, You’re gonna be murdered
Dressed to kill with the hangman’s noose
There’s no time now for breaking loose
Say your last words as the scaffold drops
Your shadow hangs over the smiling cops
Cut the rope and fall to the ground
The Corporate Gallows, they won this round
