lyrics

One truth! Not alternative facts,
Demand proof, from those that dance around their income tax,
Bureaucrats of unspeakable acts are impeachable,
Pull yourself up by your bootstraps people!

1st Verse:

First they came for the socialists, but I did not speak out
because of hopelessness­––I was paralyzed, motionless,
I felt powerless, alone and afraid,
But fam the light is dying and now it’s time to rage!

To ultraconservatives, facts are alternative
They wanna replace your race with one that's superlative
hide your turban kid, they have us nervous like the Germans did
cuz affirmative action isn't permanent

I’m standing up for the marginalized and immigrants,
The threat posed to our democracy is imminent,
We can’t be giving in to that orange idiot
Our last chance for change is to become a dissident!

Are you listening? No person is illegal,
Regardless of your faith or race all people are equal,
Religious liberty is an assault on our dignity
The beauty of our country is to see things differently

Chorus:
One truth! Not alternative facts,
Demand proof, from those that dance around their income tax,
Bureaucrats of unspeakable acts are impeachable,
Pull yourself up by your bootstraps people!

2nd verse:
Fascist, Nazi, totalitarian,
Racist, xenophobe, authoritarian,
Megalomaniac, pathological liar
narcissist, demagogue, sociopath, you’re fired!

By the people for the people, a total farce
You drained the swamp but replaced it with a marsh
It’s time for us march and protect our amendments
against the alt-right, all white power of your henchmen

Puppet of the Kremlin, American sham
A failed businessman compensating for small hands
Fan of grabbing women & promoting racism,
ethnocentricity, bigotry and nativism

Anti-intellectual, fake news informs your views,
Impulsive tweets reveal your short fuse,
It’s an Orwellian nightmare we’re living in,
Let’s speak out before free speech is prohibited!

One truth! Not alternative facts,
Demand proof, from those that dance around their income tax,
Bureaucrats of unspeakable acts are impeachable,
Pull yourself up by your bootstraps people!

This kleptocracy is conquering through obnoxious posturing
false truth conjuring to sponsor warmongering
Incumbents mumbling of troubling woes
As the courtiers tell the emperor he has clothes

The Bible says to love thy neighbor as thyself
So why deny the poor among us access to health?
And what if your neighbor is a Muslim or Jew,
Will you love even those who don’t agree with you?

All their lies are truthful hyperboles
our privacy is in their cloud of uncertainty
and certainly they may make us disappear
just as they declare it a state of emergency!

Injustice anywhere’s a threat to justice everywhere,
A free and independent press reveals the lies you’ve buried there,
Undermining the media and those in academia,
In favor of some BS that you read on Wikipedia!

Chorus:
One truth! Not alternative facts,
Demand proof, from those that dance around their income tax,
Bureaucrats of unspeakable acts are impeachable,
Pull yourself up by your bootstraps people!

Show me what democracy looks like!
This is what democracy looks like!
Show me what democracy looks like!
This is what democracy looks like!
