Fire Is Ours

Album: not on an album (2016)
  • I've been lied to
    Misled
    Built up by what they said
    Lifted only to be let down

    I've been taken
    For a ride
    Given power to decide
    Only to find out I was wrong

    But I've learned to tell the ones who fake it
    From the few really fit to run
    Just follow the money they've been takin'
    And the truth will shine like the sun

    I'm so tired of lies now babe
    Don't wanna compromise no way

    And I feel the burn
    For someone who can't be bought
    To back the man who's fought
    For the People of America

    Color. Gender.
    Who's a bigger spender?
    Party. Personality.

    Soundbite. Get it right.
    Entertain 'em, it's a fight
    Pick the one who most thinks like me

    Don't speak of any real solutions
    It's the shock appeal they're looking for
    Don't criticize the institution
    But I can't take it anymore

    Aren't you tired of lies now baby?
    It's time for us to rise- no more maybe

    And I feel the burn
    For the truth to come across
    To melt away the gloss
    And reveal their motivations

    And you'll feel the burn
    For integrity to lead
    To focus on the needs
    Of the People of America

    Somebody's tuggin' at your heartstrings
    Sayin' what you wanna hear
    But they're just a pawn to the real kings
    Playin' upon your fear

    The love of power is a puppet string
    But can't control the love we bring
    The fire is ours
    The hour is now
    The tide is set to turn

    And I feel the burn
    To cast aside the chains
    And salvage what remains
    Of a dream worth defending

    And you'll feel the Bern
    Standing up to greed
    Word aligned with deed
