lyrics

quite frankly im exhausted from being angry all the time
but ive found that its hard not to be living with your eyes open wide
turns out that they werent lying when they said that ignorance is bliss
and just because these problems do not affect you
doesnt mean that they do not exist

theyre killing our boys for holding toy guns
kidnapping our students, murdering our loved ones
why dont you understand you cant face the cops against themselves
why dont you understand that judge wont prosecute himself
why dont you understand you cant fight the system with itself

and no rights were ever won sitting quietly waiting for justice to come
and if you are neutral and idle youre feeding into the problem
so dont turn the other cheek watching from the other side of a screen
you are as powerful as you allow yourself to be

we’re all fighting the same war on different fronts
attacking the same system of oppression
i know that it’s easy to forget
that there are less of them than us
and its about time for an uprising
if we come together we can finally get shit done
and im sick of seeing cops taking innocent lives
i can’t remember all their names and stories no matter how hard i try

all i can see is bloodstained skin behind red and blue lights
