about

Bradley Manning courageously exposed documents that proved illegal and immoral actions by the military and US politicians. Bradley later announced that he is a transgender individual and is now known as Chelsea Manning. She is currently incarcerated at Ft. Levenworth federal prison for exposing the crimes of the US government.

lyrics

Life on the line, in a foreign land
Consequences on his mind, the truth in his hand
Think for just a moment, what would you do?
Like David Rovics sings: what if you knew?

Spill your guts or be
An accomplice to this travesty
Or spill your guts and be
The conscience of society

Surrounded by secrets, mired in lies
Witness to democracy becoming imperialism in disguise
Opposed to the system of oppression and of greed
Sacrifice for country his virtue and his creed

Spill your guts or be
Complicit in this travesty
Or spill your guts and be
The conscience of society

Miscarriage of justice, he sits inside a cell
The criminals he exposed, free and wreaking hell
He took on the powerful, war profits their game
A hero and a patriot, Bradley Manning was his name

Spill your guts or be
An accomplice to this travesty
Or spill your guts and be
The conscience of society

Spill your guts or be
An aide to criminality
Or spill your guts and be
The conscience of society
Spill your guts or be
An accomplice to this travesty
Or spill your guts and be
A hero of democracy
