Here’s the lyrics:
D.I.Y. or Die ! Fucko!
D.I.Y. till I die, we build and multiply
Defeat, they will retreat, tear down, their industry
Level the top , no we can’t stop, the dissent cannot be silenced by the cops
This is victory is ours, no more fears, the impact will be felt for years
Our passion, our love will prevail.
They can’t take our art to sell.
No more making things fast and cheap.
I want this to mean something special to me
This love, this passion, this is not for sale
These words, these story’s, are not for commercials
Book our own tours, build our own networks, basement shows and community centers.
Zine Distros and make new friends, we band together and we will sing
We should realize that we don’t need them rather they need us.
We have gotten to a point of being self sufficient and free from the chains of capitalism restraint. We can make D.I.Y. more than a way we participate in a music scene, we can make it a everyday part of our lives. We are using our own tools, the ones we have made, to create a new world and watch the old one fade.
