Common Man

 

Out the window the sun is setting

And it has been setting for a long time now

And here we stand staring down this long dark barrel

This house is not a home anymore

This house is no home anymore

Sight of hand, background checks

The cartridge is full, but that's okay

Because from what they have told us it is designed to be relatively safe

Until the moment you fire them

The cartridge is full, filled with deception and lies

It has been filled with hate and corruption by those we thought that we could trust

It is filled with a debris of greed and terror

People dying in the streets with no home, no place to go, hunger

It has been filled with money trickling down in to their pockets

Their billion dollar mansions, their tax write offs, their swamp

The gutters filled up with oil force feeding in to our stomachs

The poverty, the poverty, rich versus the poor

Who gets to decide who suffers

It has been filled with churches not separate from state

And companies built right over our houses

Families being ripped apart with children being shoved in to cages

Blood soaked land, swimming in pollution

Filling our lungs, our stomachs, filling our minds

This house is not a home anymore

This house is no home anymore

But we, we are the ones holding the ultimate weapon

And when we pull that trigger, and we will

We'll ignite an explosive charge more powerful than any weapon of mass destruction

We are armed and we're ready, we're ready

Because our bullets, our bullets are made of love

Our bullets are made of hope for our future

Our weapons are filled with our voice

Dignity, our music, our change

They are filled with kindness, strength in numbers

You, we, are not alone

And we will rise, we'll take action, take power in unison

And we will keep screaming, keep screaming

Until they acknowledge us, until they see us

Until they have truly heard us, until they get on our level

We'll keep screaming

This house is our home, this house is our home, this house is our home

And we are moving back in

The common man feels a lot of pain

The common man feels a lot of pain

Together we can ignite the flame and take our place once again

We've got such a long road ahead

Believe in our strength don't bury your head

The time is here, the time is now

Patti sang people have the power

Like the sun let's rise

Let's all rise

The common man feels a lot of pain

The common man feels the heartache

But it doesn't have to be this way

Together we can make a brighter day

Yeah, we have the power to make things change

Yeah, we have the power

So let's all rise

Like the sun let's rise

The common man feels all the pain
