lyrics

Control under a veneer of politeness is just a muzzle to keep you still
So let them say their prayers and clutch their pearls
It's time change things
Let's fucking go

They can wag their fingers and tut all they like
Sitting on a hill far from the damage
"If only these hooligans knew of some restraint"
Is a new way of saying "fucking know your place"

We get shot at for looking like a threat
For the audacity of breathing while broke
And now we have to sit back down and patiently wait
To give a metered response while we are stabbed in the throat

Fuck it, that time has passed
You can't fight hatred with kindness
Rise up, burn it down
We will rebuild

Fuck it, that time has passed
Bigotry doesn't listen to reason
Rise up, burn it down
We will rebuild

Push through the debris and fire
There's greener grass on the other side
Past a mountain of haters
Who claim that murder is justified

Feel the anger burning
After so many years of taking a knee
There's no need to keep it buried
Time to set it free

It's in their plan to keep us occupied
So we keep throwing stones and taking sides
If we fight between ourselves we cannot see
How they turned fucking us into an industry

So push aside the difference
Between skin and creed and our histories
We all bleed the same blood when we are hurt
And we all look the same buried in the dirt

So will your lethargy keep you from trying
Stand up and raise your fist with us
Get off your ass and do something different
We are in this together

No justice means no peace
No justice means no peace
No justice means no peace
No justice means no peace

Push through the debris and fire
There's greener grass on the other side
Past a mountain of haters
Who claim that murder is justified

Feel the anger burning
After so many years of taking a knee
There's no need to keep it buried
Time to set it free

Set it free
