Here's one that gets me going!  She rules, plus she's a Fantasy Writer.

Battle Dawn by Mercedes Lackey.

Here's a link to listen to the full song.
http://www.imeem.com/nachtwulf/music/nLyrMAjp/mercedes_lackey_battle_dawn/

Battle Dawn


I must contain my anger, or I won't control my power-
But gods! How long I've waited just to see this very hour!
It's just as well I'm not the one who calls the storm of fire---
Or I would turn this battle plain into your funeral pyre!

The priests all say I must not hate--- but I will not pretend.
I saw the wreck you made of her, my Herald and my friend---
The scars you left in flesh and soul will be so slow to fade---
Oh, would I had your coward heart beneath my naked blade!  (My personal favorite line of all!)

I must control my rage, or lose ability to plan,
I must direct the fight from here, not charging in the van.
As you will likewise do, no doubt, for all that you are cruel
And revel in shed blood and pain, I think you are no fool.

But in the name of all the gods, you're all that I despise,
Who planned to take by treachery my kingdom as your prize---
My throne, my child, my people. All, you plotted to despoil---
By tricks that only miracles enabled us to foil.

I must control my fury or let slip all that I've sought-
But vengeance would not be enough for all the grief you've wrought.
Gods grant this day you fall beneath the steel of me and mine---
And drink full deeply of defeat, that cold and bitter wine.

My crown is on my brow, my naked blade within my hand.
My army like an eager hound lies waiting my command.
With how you tortured, killed and lied revealed to them this day---
By all the stars that ever shone,
By all the gods, known and unknown,
For Herald Kris and my Queen's Own---
I swear that you will pay!

    Send the Marines

                                  by Tom Lehrer


When someone makes a move
Of which we don't approve,
Who is it that always intervenes?
U.N. and O.A.S.,
They have their place, I guess,
But first send the Marines!


and so on

Can I Tell You?   Kansas

Can I tell you something?
Got to tell you one thing
If you expect the freedom
That you say is yours
Prove that you deserve it
Help us to preserve
Or being free will just be
Words and nothing more.

Here's a fantastic live performance from 1974, when they were young, full of energy, and tight as HELL:

Great music in this thread! I keep a bunch of those in my playlist most of the time. Here are a few of my favorites I didn't see, I apologize for any duplicates.

Links go to lastfm, where there are lyrics and videos for some. A few of these are not work/family friendly.

Public Enemy's What Good is a Bomb

The Dead Kennedy's Stars  and Stripes of Corruption

T.S.O.L. American Zone

Barry McGuire's Eve of Destruction (I like the Public Enemy cover too)

Peter Tosh's I Am That I Am

MC5's American Ruse

This is a thread I have ignored because I could spend far too much time here. But, if you like heavy music this is for you.  I will give a few personal favorite albums and songs:

Pantera - Fucking Hostile
Corrosion of Conformity - Vote With a Bullet
Today is the Day - Outland, This Machine Kills Facists, and Axis of Eden (amazing lyrics on Outland)
Dying Fetus - Stop at Nothing
Nasum - Everything they did (RIP M.T.)
KMFDM - WWIII
Isis - Panopticon
High on Fire - Death is this Communion
the Hidden Hand - Divine Propaganda
Cephalic Carnage - Kill for Weed
Burnt by the Sun - Anything and Everything they have done.
Bad Acid Trip - Lynch the Weirdo

"Its time I made myself a plan
with this fist stone heart in hand
my blade my eye die empty man
it's you it's you not me you see
black crow false bird die fly in shame
uphold the truth don't die in vain
my sword your lord I score your dead
bleed bleed bleed stop breathing
goodbye don't cry my hatred
inside it's time to fly nowhere
it's time to live the truth or die
outland"

Happy St Patrick's day!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=317zi3CwppI

    I sat within a valley green
    I sat me with my true love
    My sad heart strove to choose between
    The old love and the new love
    The old for her, the new that made
    Me think on Ireland dearly
    While soft the wind blew down the glen
    And shook the golden barley

    Twas hard the woeful words to frame
    To break the ties that bound us
    But harder still to bear the shame
    Of foreign chains around us
    And so I said, "The mountain glen
    I'll seek at morning early
    And join the bold United Men"
    While soft winds shake the barley

    While sad I kissed away her tears
    My fond arms 'round her flinging
    A full man shot burst on our ears
    From out the wildwood ringing
    A bullet pierced my true love's side
    In life's young spring so early
    And on my breast in blood she died
    While soft winds shook the barley

    I bore her to some mountain stream
    And many's the summer blossom
    I placed with branches soft and green
    About her gore-stained bosom
    I wept and kissed her clay-cold corpse
    Then rushed o'er vale and valley
    My vengeance on the foe to wreak
    While soft winds shook the barley

    But blood for blood without remorse
    I've taken at Oulart Hollow
    And laid my true love's clay-cold corpse
    Where I full soon may follow
    As 'round her grave I wander drear
    Noon, night and morning early
    With breaking heart when e'er I hear
    The wind that shakes the barley

Or:

The Men Behind the Wire:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiegjgdZu9g

Lyrics:

Armoured cars and tanks and guns
Came to take away our sons
But every man will stand behind
The Men Behind the Wire

Through the little streets of Belfast
In the dark of early morn
British soldiers came marauding
Wrecking little homes with scorn.

Heedless of the crying children
Dragging fathers from their beds
Beating sons while helpless mothers
Watched the blood flow from their heads

Chorus

Not for them a judge or jury
Or indeed a crime at all
Being Irish means they're guilty
So we're guilty one and all

Round the world the truth will echo
CromweIl's men are here again
England's name again is sullied
In the eyes of honest menChorus

Chorus

Proudly march behind our banners
Firmly stand behind our men
We will have them free to help us
Build a Nation once again

On the people stand together
Proudly firmly on your way
Never fear, and never falter
Till the boys are home to stay




Enjoy St Paddy's Day, have Guiness on me.

Redemption Song
Bob Marley

Old pirates, yes, they rob I;
Sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the 'and of the Almighty.
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly.
Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
'Cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? Ooh!
Some say it's just a part of it:
We've got to fulfil de book.

Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
'Cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

[Guitar break]

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Wo! Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it's just a part of it:
We've got to fulfil de book.
Won't you help to sing
Dese songs of freedom? -
'Cause all I ever had:
Redemption songs -
All I ever had:
Redemption songs:
These songs of freedom,
Songs of freedom.

Forgive me ... Didn't comb through the entire thread to see whether or not the Marley horse had been beaten to death. Most anything he wrote is more than worthy of being listed here, but the one that jumped to the front of my mind immediately is "Small Axe."

Small Axe by Robert Nesta Marley:

Why boasteth thyself, O evil men;
Playing smart and not being clever, oh no!
I say you're working iniquity
To achieve vanity, yeah, if a-so a-so.
But the goodness of Jah - Jah
Idureth for Iver.

If you are the big tree,
We are the small axe
Sharpened to cut you down, (well sharp)
Ready to cut you down, oh yeah!

These are the words of my master
Keep on tellin' me - o-oh! - no weak heart shall prosper:
Oh no, they can't! Eh.

And whosoever diggeth a pit, Lord,
Shall fall in it - shall fall in it.
Whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall bury in it - shall bury in it.

If you are the big tree,
We are the small axe
Sharpened to cut you down,
Ready to cut you down.
---
[Instrumental break]
---
Whosoever diggeth the pit
Shall fall in it - fall in it, eh!
Whosoever diggeth the pit
Shall bury in it - shall bury in it.

If you are the big tree,
We have a small axe
Ready to cut you down, (well sharp)
Sharpened to cut you down.

If you are the big tree,
Let me tell you this: we are the small axe
Ready to cut you down, (well sharp)
Sharpened to cut you down.

If you have a big tree ...

Ya know, until today I had thought that the first line was "Why muster thyself for evil men," which I would say that I prefer if I did not fear the consequences of hubris!

Found these while searching for something else - except Linkin Park - got that one in '07

Eric Clapton: When This War is Over


When this war is over it will be a better day
When this war is over it will be a better day
But it won't bring back those poor boys in the grave

Ain't no sense in the action, killing people all the time
Ain't no sense no the action, killing people all the time
When it happen on the street we call that a crime

These old boys are leading us somewhere - that is plain to see
I don't know much of nothing, still it troubles me
Got to find another way, this one ain't the way to go
Got to get a plan, change our ways or no...

When this war is over it will be a better day
When this war is over it will be a better day
But it won't bring back those poor boys in the grave

When this war is over, it will be a better day
When this war is over, it will be a better day
But it won't bring back those poor boys in the grave

RUSH - Red Sector A

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzXDi_f9PUY

Music by Lee and Lifeson / Lyrics by Peart

All that we can do is just survive
All that we can do to help ourselves
Is stay alive...

Ragged lines of ragged grey
Skeletons, they shuffle away
Shouting guards and smoking guns
Will cut down the unlucky ones

I clutch the wire fence
Until my fingers bleed
A wound that will not heal-
A heart that cannot feel-
Hoping that the horror will recede
Hoping that tomorrow-
We'll all be freed

Sickness to insanity
Prayer to profanity
Days and weeks and months go by
Don't feel the hunger-too weak to cry

I hear the sound of gunfire
At the prison gate
Are the liberators here-
Do I hope or do I fear?
For my father and my brother-it's too late
But I must help my mother
Stand up straight...

Are we the last ones left alive?
Are we the only human beings
To survive?...


Battle of the Mounds - Basil Poledouris

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhZeJAUERBI

"Crom! I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad -- why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that two stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you Crom, so grant me one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen...then to hell with you!"

ENGLISH SUB:

english version
You said that if you could flap your wings
You would never come back down
You always aimed for that blue, blue sky

Still without remembering "sadness"
I begin to grasp "pain"
When these feelings reach you
They will change into "words"

As you awaken from a dream
In an unknown world
Spread your wings and take flight

You said that if you would flap your wings
You would never come back down
You aimed for that white, white cloud
You know if you can just make it through
You'll find what you seek

Keep trying to break free for that blue, blue sky
That blue, blue sky
That blue, blue sky

Using a sound like harsh words
You broke the old window that was rusty
You got tired of seeing the cage
You threw it away and never looked back

The pulse that beats quickly
Catches my breath
Kick this window and take flight

You said that if you ran
That you can do it
That far far voice that calls out to you
To take your very radiant hand

Just to search for that blue, blue sky
I understand if you fall
But continue to go after the light

You said that if you could flap your wings
You would never come back down
You search for that white, white cloud

You know if you can just make it through
You'll find what you seek

Keep tryïng to break free for that blue, blue sky
That blue, blue sky
That blue, blue sky
