Protest Song

lyrics

Can't go forward 'cuz you hold us back
Where were you when they launched the attack?
Circle walking and ya lost yr minds
Still pretending that everything's fine

And we love our friends for fighting for a better way to be
Taking pictures, taking bullets - document brutality
Gotta take the top level off the pyramid and shake it up inside
Everybody gets there share tonight

We'll go forward yeah we won't go back
We remember whose side was attacked
Keep on walking, stay on course
if it don't get better then it's gonna get worse

And we love all those resisting injustice and cruelty
On campus and at the station, fighting for humanity
Gotta take the top level off the pyramid and shake it up inside
Everybody gets there share tonight

Tonight we honor all those who did it right
Even if we gotta do it in vigils by candlelight
Even though there's more of us we still have to fight
And we're gonna keep going 'cuz that's how battles are won

Every person near and far has the right to live and to be who they are
We got lucky but we can't forget
Those we buried in a field of regrets

And we love all those defeated by the crushing weight of today
Underpaid and uninspired, you're not alone we feel your pain
Gotta take the top level off the pyramid and shake it up inside
Everybody gets there share tonight

Tonight we honor all those who did it right
Even if we gotta do it in vigils by candlelight
Even though there's more of us we still have to fight
And we're gonna keep going 'cuz that's how battles are won
And we're gonna keep going 'cuz that's priority one
If we had it our way this crap would be over and done
