Mildly rewritten for Thelemic sensibilities by Dionysos Thriambos, on the basis of the perennial protest anthem first sung by striking tobacco workers circa 1945, deriving from the earlier gospel songs “I'll Overcome Some Day” (1900) by Charles Tindley, and “No More Auction Block for Me” (a spiritual that dates to before the Civil War).

“Every conquest, every pleasurable feeling, everything that happens presupposes a resistance overcome.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

“The road winds uphill: all law, all nature must be overcome.” –Aleister Crowley
