Luke Gawne - We the People lyrics

Verse One God Bless America and my right to speak the truth But middle finger to these white-collared men in a suit Whether it's Washington or Wall Street, they're all treasonous to the flag we salute The red, white, and blue Now they wanna talk about the troops? I got a sister in the Navy, she's a mother of two And my brother's a Marine, 
rockin' combat boots He fought in Iraq where they bombed and shoot, but made it back To my mama like a champ Though in the process involved, he hurt his back I watched my brother break his back 
for the service, but the government deserted him, 
his contract was terminated You see they didn't want to pay for his surgeon While corporate tax breaks inflated their purses We got a congress full of sleazebag, treacherous-hags and y'all wondering why Kaepernick won't stand for the flag Just think about it. 
Before you log-on to Facebook and make a stink about it I'm sick of all this fake “patriotism”
 if y'all were really patriotic you'd be tweetin' bout the cheatin' taking place in our system Like how we're working slaves, entangled by the chains of big business,
 with racial labor divisions,
 and discrimination in pays between a man and a woman,
 goddammit 
I've had it with snatching Hispanic parents away from raising their children Deportations erasing the faces of millions While incarceration rates are blatant displays
 of what's taken place by putting profit in prisons Now black Americans are the victims of disparities in em' See it's institutional racism But I don't see no movement from politicians,
 nah... They rather sit and bask in the wealth 
by themselves Yo the pitchforks are coming,
 I tell ya Verse Two Election day I watched the news 
and the media crews Only to witness the abusive propaganda they skewed And used to lure the viewers into distorted influence Giving us contorted visions of a nation said to be “doomed” Yeah we got problems… But they ain't gonna tell us how to solve em' Not if fear tactics make the people blindly want to follow So all their talk 
isn't substantive, it's hollow Journalism must have sold it's soul to the dollar See journalism.. Forgot about us God, 
now we're out here on our own without a voice to be hollered When freshman year of college I would volunteer my hours at a homeless shelter feeding humans they wouldn't acknowledge But maybe I'm an optimist... Cause I still think WE THE PEOPLE got the power I still think we're all equal, yeah regardless of the evil That we're facing in our nation so I'm taking it to congress! This one's for the people that our government's forgotten Our gays, m**ms, atheists, the natives and impoverished The list goes on and on
 but what I'm really trying to say is whether black, white, or purple 
every person is the same 
in this province It ain't about Hillary or Donald Nah, this about the black lives that matter in the projects And the policemen in uniform, serving us with honor Divisiveness is not the objective, nor what I sponsor But I'ma do what's right, even if it isn't popular Sitting back while history's written by the hands of monsters, ain't an option American's fought tooth and nail for progress Even when it was war, to have slavery abolished… And just look how far we've gotten... Now what we've yet to still accomplish... I understand that we won't all agree But what really makes us great isn't policy, or ideologies, it's equality And Dr. King said it best y'all He said,
“No one is free until we all are free” He said “No one is free until...”
 You tell me
