WHAT ELSE DO WE NEED TO MAKE IT CLEAR

THAT DOOMSDAY IS GETTING PERILOUSLY NEAR

OUR SAFETY NET IS TORN TO SHREDS

TAX BREAKS ARE GIVEN TO CORPORATE HEADS

WHILE WE ON THE BOTTOM AND IN THE MIDDLE

LOSE MORE EACH DAY WHILE THE LEADERS FIDDLE

 

WE'RE MAKING WAR ALL OVER THE PLANET

THOUGH OUR CITIZENS DAILY URGE, "PLEASE BAN IT"

SOLDIERS AND CITIZENS ARE DYING FOR NAUGHT

SO BOMBS AND GUNS CAN BE PROFITABLY BOUGHT

VETS COMING HOME ARE UNEMPLOYED

BODIES AND MINDS TOO OFTEN DESTROYED

 

WHAT MORE WILL IT TAKE TO AWAKEN US ALL

TO SCARE US OUT OF OUR LISTLESS PALL

SO WE'LL TAKE TO THE STREETS, TOSS THE SCOUNDRELS OUT

A THOROUGH, CONCLUSIVE AND ALL-AROUND ROUT

AMERICA, THIS IS WHAT IT WILL TAKE

OUR CHILDREN'S FUTURES ARE AT STAKE

 

WAKE UP, AMERICA, ORGANIZE

THE TIME HAS COME TO MOBILIZE

WE MUST HAVE MORE THAN MOANS AND GROANS

WE'VE GOT TO LEAVE OUR COMFORT ZONES

AND FINALLY TAKE ACTION, NOW, TODAY

LET'S HIT THE STREETS, WITHOUT DELAY!
