lyrics

[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!

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 ultra-conservatives, 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 x 2]


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 and 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!

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 of 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 x 2]

[Refrain]
Show me what democracy looks like!
This is what democracy looks like!
Show me what democracy looks like!
This is what democracy looks like!
