[The song is] dedicated to the fight against Arizona's backwards new laws and all the immigrants under the gun. We've been performing the song over the course of the last tour supporting Shooter Jennings, and when we heard about Arizona SB1070 we called up Morello and cut a version. The original is a Woody Guthrie song but the lyrics ring as true as ever:
*Some of us are illegal and some are not wanted*
*When contract is out, we've got to move out*
*Its six hundred miles to the Mexican border*
*They chase us like outlaws, like rustlers, like thieves*
