Iskra-Prisoners of Conscience

Remember those people who live inside cages 
Denied basic rights and no hope for parole. 
Prisoners who gave their lives for revolution 
Surrounded in silence, does anybody know? 

Their family is gone, their friends are dead 
Forced to concede they have no control. 
They're given no respect, their dignity stripped 
Does anybody know? 
In moral innocence, will they die alone? 
will anybody know? 

They'd seen the sign of truth out there 
They let the people know 
of mindless terror everywhere 
does anybody know? 

A body bound,A body dragged 
Broken skin, broken bones 
Tortured inside a cement cell 
Where Nobody will know. 
A stolen life, a living hell 
Does anybody know? 

The Black Panthers, A.I.M, and MOVE 
Struggling for dignity, fighting racial oppression 
Black Liberation Army, FALN, and RATF 
Working towards autonomy, against imperialist expansion 
Earth Liberation Front, Animal Liberation Front 
Fighting to stop the continued destruction of life on this planet 
When a so-called democratic systems ignore the voices of conscience 
Direct action is the only recourse for developing opposition. 

The New York 3, The Move 9, The Panther 21, Adolpho

Dunne, Larry Giddings, David Gilbert, Mutulu Shakur, 
Dylcia Pagan, Edwin Cortes, Alicia Rodriguez, Tom 
Manning, Anthony Bottom, Bashir Hameed, Hanif Bey, 
Leonard Peletier, Laura Whitehorn, Marshal Conway, 
Linda Evans, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Luis Rosa, Mark Cook, 
Pat Moloney, Juan Segarra Palmer, Ida Luz Rodriguez, 
Jihad Abdul Mumit, Ray Luc Levasseur, Shaka 
Shakur,Pavel Koupa, Eric Wildcat Hall, Ted Kaczynski, 
Helen Woodson: 

These people are currently serving sentences for their conscious political activities, they have sacrificed their
freedom to build a revolutionary movement in support of a free existence based on mutual aid, justice, and respect. 

They're in a cage this very night 
A life sentence or a death sentence. 
Their spirits live while their body's bound 
Does anybody know? 
Everyone remember that they're still there 
Everyone should know.
