Song lyrics:

[Verse 1]
This will be the 663 time that Ive read The Constitution this year
Added to the 1,207 that Ive read it last
I just want to make sure that the verbiage is crystal clear
When we say let freedom ring with the harmonies of liberty
What do we sing?
We shall overcome someday?

[Verse 2]
Sing a song
Facing the rising sun that illuminates the sores of our souls
And not just the being that is wrought, but literally the souls that we stand upon
Weary our feat, yet we march on
For I know A Change Gone Come

So we two step and we stomp and we scat a steady beat
Bitter from the chastning rods that are no longer batons, but bullets aimed at our cheek
Which we have turned and turned throughout the pages of history, so much to the point where any direction appears to be a peering light from the North Star
Just meet me there...Down By the Riverside

[Verse 3]
Sing a song
God if you are listening, if my freedom could just touch the hem of your garment, I will trade in these fabrics that fabricate this illusion of liberation


Lead us into the light, your congregation
I will sip this communion until we are drunk with the wine of the world; chased by the years of silent tears
What do we want, Freedom!
When do we want it, NOW!

[Verse 4]
Sing a song
For the best way to keep a slave
Is to remove the cage and dare them to step outside of the box that the capture has made
In the land of the free and the home of the brave
We will sing curses in code
We wil sing freedom in stanzas
We will sing love in libretto until our harmony inflects the intonation of OUR harmony

[Verse 5]
Let our diaphragm emote the quotes of our ancestors and the Dreams of our unborn seeds
Only to pollinate the grounds from which you so desperately try to plant us
Not knowing that our roots were never barren

Let us march on until victory is won
Let us march on until victory is one

Sing a song
