Track Name: The Man in the Box
A song commemorating Occupy Wall Street's "Man in the Box," David Everitt Carlson.

THE MAN IN THE BOX

Going to tell you a story 'bout the Man in the Box
He was painting night and day for the Occupation
The Man in the Box, he doesn't watch Fox
The Man in the Box, he doesn't own stocks
Don't tell the cops about the Man in the Box
The Man in the Box

Going to tell you a story 'bout the Man in the Box
He was thinking outside the old paradigm
The Man in the Box, he's making a sign
The Man in the Box, for the protest line
So don't tell the cops about the Man in the Box
The Man in The Box

Well he set up a tepee by the Media Tent
Smoking allowed at a reasonable rent
But just when the man got a smile on his face
Winsky came in and raided the place

Going to tell you a story 'bout the Man in the Box
He was painting night and day for the Occupation
The Man in the Box, he doesn't watch Fox
The Man in the Box, he doesn't own stocks
Don't tell the cops about the Man in the Box
The Man in the Box
Don't tell the cops about the Man in the Box
The Man in the Box

Track Name: The Anarchists Are Coming
THE ANARCHISTS ARE COMING
Music by Stephen C. Baldwin and David Intrator; words by Stephen C. Baldwin. Performed by Steve and Dave

They say the anarchists are coming
They say they're wearing their masks
And now I hear the scooters rumbling
Somebody's going to kick some ass

You know diversity of tactics
Can be used to make a point
But now the cops have got their nightsticks
And they could put you in the joint

But still the anarchists are coming
They've got bandanas on their face
Now everybody's running
They're going bananas in this place

(solo)

You know the anarchists are coming
They're on the cover of The Post
And now the Internet is humming
It's going out from coast to coast
The anarchists are coming

The anarchists are coming
The anarchists are coming
The anarchists are coming
Track Name: Zuccotti Reqiuem
Would you take my body
Down to Zuccotti
Lay me on the ground
Lay me on the ground
Track Name: The Freedom Cage
THE FREEDOM CAGE
Words and music by Stephen C. Baldwin, performed by Stephen C. Baldwin

There’s a special place where we can speak our thoughts
It’s a First Amendment space where we can’t be caught
Federal rules apply beyond the barricades
We can speak our minds in the Freedom Cage

In the Freedom Cage

It’s a dedicated zone that surrounds us here
You have found your home, you will have no fear
You can make a sign, I can rant and rave
No one will be fined or sent away

In the Freedom Cage
In the Freedom Cage
In the Freedom Cage
In the Freedom Cage
Track Name: Back in Zuccotti Again
BACK IN ZUCCOTTI AGAIN.
Words and Music by Stephen C. Baldwin

Back in Zuccotti again
But where the heck are my friends?
Has anyone seen the Man in the Box?
Officer Winsky or the Hipster Cop?
It was a while ago
But I can't let go
So I'm sitting alone with a pigeon on my hand
And I'm back in Zuccotti again

Back in Zuccotti again
But where the heck are my friends?
Has anyone seen the Ladies Who Knit?
The guy with the sign that says "it's fucked up and bullshit"?
It was a while ago
But I can't let go
So I'm sitting alone with a pigeon on my hand
And I'm back in Zuccotti again
Track Name: Stop and Frisk
STOP AND FRISK
Words and Music by Stephen C. Baldwin, performed by Stephen C. Baldwin

First they’re going to stop and frisk
Then they’re going to strip and search
They’re going to send you to Guantanamo
And you’ll disappear from the earth

They’re going to stop and frisk
Then they’re going to strip and search
They’re going to send you to Guantanamo
And you’ll disappear from the earth

NDAA, you’ve taken our rights away
Everybody here be careful -- what you say

(solo)

It ain’t because the government’s being malicious
It’s only because everybody here – you look suspicious

So they’re going to stop and frisk
Then they’re going to strip and search
They’re going to send you to Guantanamo
It’s the very last place that you want to go
So you’d better get used to the risk
They’re going to stop and frisk.
Track Name: Walking 99 Miles (The Longest Musical March on U.S. Soil)
WALKING 99 MILES (THE LONGEST MUSICAL MARCH ON U.S. SOIL)
Music by Stephen C. Baldwin and David Intrator, lyrics by Stephen C. Baldwin. Performed by Steve and Dave

Marching out of Phillie they never stopped
Marching out of Trenton they never stopped

On a road so hot that our brains began to boil

Marching up to Princeton they never stopped
Marching through New Brunswick they never stopped

It was the longest musical march on U.S. soil

We're walking ninety nine miles
We're walking ninety nine miles

Marching to Zuccotti they never stopped
Marching to Zuccotti they never stopped
Marching to Zuccotti they never stopped
Marching to Zuccotti they never stopped

On a road so hot that our brains began to boil

We're walking ninety nine miles
We're walking ninety nine miles
We're walking ninety nine miles
We're walking ninety nine miles
Track Name: M-17 (A Party The World Has Never Seen)
M-17 (A PARTY THAT THE WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN)

Well we're going home, down to Zuccotti
For the big six month anniversary party
A party that the world has never seen
M-17

And you know the cops won't be around
They'll all be drinking way uptown
They'll be too tired to make much of a scene
At M-17

We're going down
We're going down

(solo)

Well we're going home, down to Zuccotti
For the big six month anniversary party
A party that the world has never seen
A party that the world has never seen
A party that the world has never seen
M-17

Performed by Stephen C. Baldwin and David Intrator. Music by Stephen C. Baldwin and David Intrator. Lyrics by Stephen C. Baldlwin
Track Name: The Occu-Flu Song
THE OCCU-FLU SONG

Don't let the Occu-Flu chill ya
Cause the Occu-Flu can kill ya
You know the germ don't give a damn about me and you
So if you go down to Zuccotti
Better take care of your body
We've got a long long way to go before we're through

Don't let the Occu-Flu chill ya
Cause the Occu-Flu can kill ya
You know the germ don't give a damn about me and you
So if you go down to Zuccotti
Better take care of your body
We've got a long long way to go before we're through

Words and music by Stephen C. Baldwin, performed by Stephen C. Baldwin
Track Name: Going Downtown Again
GOING DOWNTOWN AGAIN

Zuccotti --in the morning sun
Zuccotti -- is for everyone
Zuccotti -- where the drummers play
Zuccotti -- chase your blues away
Zuccotti -- in the wind and rain
Zuccotti -- guess I'm going downtown again

Zuccotti -- in the afternoon
Zuccotti -- with a mop and broom
Zuccotti -- by the Big Red Thing
Zuccotti -- everyone will sing
Zuccotti -- in the wind and rain
Zuccotti -- guess I'm going downtown again

(solo)
Zuccotti -- by the People Staged
Zuccotti -- by the barricades
Zuccotti -- by the Tree of Prayer
Zuccotti -- love is everywhere
Zuccotti -- by the candlelight
Zuccotti -- everything's going to be all right

Performed by Stephen C. Baldwin and David Intrator. Music by Stephen C. Baldwin and David Intrator; lyrics by Stephen C. Baldwin.
