You Know

You know what I think

I think you should vote

and write a letter to your congressman

 

you know what I think

I hope they all choke

and we can start this mess all over again

 

You know it's time for

some serious change

it's time to run the world a better way

 

oh yeah, it's time for

a new government

a non-violent revolution today

 

we gotta vote

we gotta act

we gotta take

our freedom back

 

our lives are ours

our word revised

our time to shine

we gotta rise

 

I wanna shout loud

I wanna raise my voice

and share my disappointment with you

 

I wanna join hands

I wanna community

that I can trust and who can trust me too

 

I'm gettin tired

of all the greed

and all the pointless negativity

 

I'm gettin tired

of losin ground

and the loss of human liberty

 

 

 

 

 

we gotta vote

we gotta act

we gotta take

our freedom back

 

our lives are ours

our word revised

our time to shine

we gotta rise

 

You know what I hear

just empty words

and hollow promises of hope and change

 

You know what I hear

the guns of war

just the sounds of guns and tanks and planes

 

We should be angry

we should be up in arms

and our elected representatives, scared

 

We should be angry

and they should be worried

because they know we want them out of there

 

we gotta vote

we gotta act

we gotta take

our freedom back

 

our lives are ours

our word revised

our time to shine

we gotta rise

Not too keen on politics myself, but I do vote! I  have to admit I have become quite cynical about those that are supposed to be representing our voices. This was a great write about how the real people feel. Congrats on winning the award and welcome to this site.

Hugs

Strong message.  I like the song. Maybe Uncle Redwood will sing it out and loud.

A very good choice of words, and something we should all read and ponder on before going to the polls in November.

Very good job,  Colin...Amazing message!
