about

Written during the Trump years. No matter how dark it gets, we can change things for the better.

lyrics

I was minding my own business
Chasing demons in my head
While the devil was a foot
Feeding off the dead
Stripping off the tasty bits
Devouring the best
Just a few things
I need to get off my chest

Mindlessly we turn away
The heart is stopped
The skin is cold
As we watch this tragedy unfold

Endlessly, we turn our backs
As the screams get louder
The blood turns black
A darkness the we knew was foretold

But we can change it
We can turn it into gold
We can stop the hatred
From sickening our souls
We have the means
Because love is on our side
Always, forever and now

We’ve all given permission
For the bullies to misbehave
Supporting them with silence
Reticence and shame
It’s time to raise the sword
Time to show our might
To throw back the curtains
And let in the light
