about

This song was written after attending an ACLU resistance training.

lyrics

-----( verse )-------------------------------
Here is a worthy thing to do
while this bad reality TV show ensues

Don’t be home sad and blue
with the 24 hour cycle of the news
-------------------------------------------------
Take note of your surroundings
and the one conscience abounding

In times like these when reality bites
we gotta’ help people defend their rights

-----( verse )-------------------------------
We should all be offended
when a dreamer is apprehended

You know an attack on any one of us
is an attack on all of us
-------------------------------------------------
We are united in our resistance
on principles of empathy and tolerance

We stand on the right side of history
against those who are discriminatory

-----( verse )-------------------------------
You’re a witness to the burglary
so be a protagonist in this story

We know democracy is not a spectator sport
not something that you can just import
------------------------------------------------
So don’t get to the end of your fuse
with folks who have different points of views

Not how i want to be remembered
not the one who up and surrendered

-----( verse )-------------------------------
Here’s a good way to avoid being bored
check out people power.org

Come up with ideas for resistance events
what better way to file a grievance
-------------------------------------------------
Think of all the people you’ve befriended
all the cultures that we have blended

Together we are a superpower
shout it from your local water tower
