This track was directly inspired by The Strongest Links Vase, created by artist Vic Bamforth in tribute to trade unionist and suffragist Mary Macarthur. Her fight for equal pay and the women's chainmakers' strike won a battle to establish the right to a fair wage following a 10-week campaign in 1910. This landmark victory changed the lives of thousands of workers - including the glassworkers - who were earning little more than starvation wages.


Black by day
Red by night
Around the sweltering furnace we unite

Down your hammers and sing our song
To fight, to struggle, to right the wrong

In Cradley heath, they bared their teeth

Mary MacArthur, the Chainmaker's strike,
That was the beginning there's no end in sight

Equal pay, for equal work
Hear our voice, these are our rights
Rouse Ye Women
