Lyrics

Verse: 1
Let's open up your mind
It's time to catch some light
Don't let them dim your shine
With shadows blocking your insight
About the world that we see
But we never hear about
Like why people do bad things
When they're feeling down and out
A parent lost a child
Now they're seeking out revenge
And you have the nerve to say
"That's not how it has to end."
No matter what for them
That nightmare never ends
And that mental state they're in
Is a place you've never been
But you work seven days a week
And lose everything you had
While the rich try to tell you
Things really aren't that bad
While you're sleeping in the street
And you can't find a job
Because what they think they see
Is a drug addicted slob
But you worked your life away
Just so you could pay the bills
There was nothing you could save
And now you're mad enough to kill
Now they say you're crazy
And they haul you off to jail
Where you'll work your life away
From your poorly funded cell

Hook:
We the people, people
We are the answer we seek
We the people, people
We are what we need
We the people, people
We are the answer we seek
We the people, people
We are what we need

Verse: 2
What is it that we've done
That you've turned your back on
The fact that we are human
And deserving of your love
I hear preaching of compassion
Then I see us getting shunned
You are giving mixed signals
But we only want one
Tell me how much pain
It will take for you to see
That we've got the same feelings
No big difference in these
We've got to stop fighting
So that we can see the day
That we are treated equal
No matter what we're paid
All bodies are acceptable
No selling them as slaves
Stop attacking women
Over how their bodies look
Or how much they display
Stop saying your compulsiveness
And your bitter rage
Made her a worthy target
And ok for you to rape
Her clothes are not a bait
This is not up for debate
Take a step back and just evaluate
Strip out all that hate
And We the People
Can be great

Hook:
We the people, people
We are the answer we seek
We the people, people
We are what we need
Open up your eyes and see
You're the answer the world needs
Look into the mirror of your soul
Open up your eyes and see
You're the answer the world needs
Look into the mirror of your soul
