IMPEACHMENT NOW! Fire, Fury "Rocket man" Border Wall Travel Ban Trump calls "very fine people" the khaki clad klan With their Tiki torches And racist chants But the silent protest Non-violent focus Peaceful and courageous He calls "sons of bitches" The President Is incompetent An embarrassment Impeachment Now! The President Is incompetent An embarrassment Impeachment Now! Red and Blue establishment Bowing to Big Money influence Complicit in the highest sense You bible thumping hypocrites Cashing in on the environment Rolling back rights that we died to get Corporate tax breaks permanent I don't think that's what Jesus meant The President Is incompetent An embarrassment Impeachment Now! The President Is incompetent An embarrassment Impeachment Now! My button is bigger than yours War within reach My button is bigger than yours War within reach The President Is incompetent An embarrassment Impeachment Now! The President Is incompetent An embarrassment Impeachment Now!

COLOR OF THE SKIN My father was born in Jim Crow, Tennessee A sharecropper's son, far from luxury Moved up north in 1952 Ain't a damn thing changed from his point of view His point of view Now I been pulled over on a Shorewood shoulder Asked where you goin' where you been Ain't none of your, ain't none of your business Don't I look like an American But, you gon' think what you want now don't you I didn't know the side of the road was a courtroom Everything dark comes out in the light We keep marching on but our souls/soles are tired Here we are again, here we are again A black man gone cuz of the color of his skin I was grown and groomed in the Great Lakes Midwest Where politeness covers up years of repressed Tight lips, tight asses, too slow to grow Hyper-segregated masses and I had to go I had to go Seen the Rodney King riots in 1992 Black president, I seen that too Ain't a damn thing changed from my point of view Ain't a damn thing changed from my point of view My point of view Everything dark comes out in the light We keep marching on but our souls are tired Here we are again, here we are again A black child gone cuz of the color of her skin Everything dark comes out in the light We keep marching on but our souls are tired Here we are again, here we are again A black child gone cuz of the color of the skin The color of the skin The color of their skin The color of the skin

JAMES MADISON (The chorus is a quote by, James Madison, the 4th President of the United States) Founding fathers free spirit men Some grew hemp on their plantations All had slaves but they didn't free 'em All had slaves and some fucked 'em Jimmy James Madison Didn't give two shits about anyone Polk's "Manifest Destiny" Didn't work out for the Cherokee "The purpose of the government is to protect the minority of the opulent from the majority" Two party system Seems like one Gold at the top And the rest on the rickety rackety rungs We got the money, we got the guns We got greed and idiocy An embarrassment to everyone With any sense of decency "The purpose of the government is to protect the minority of the opulent from the majority" Prying perverts police populations Prisons populate Prophets/Profits, predictions Politicians salivate Ellsberg, Manning, Snowden, Davis Heroes and dissidents We all could use a daily dose Of civil disobedience We all could use a daily dose Of civil disobedience "The purpose of the government is to protect the minority of the opulent from the majority"

HANDS UP Hands up Don't shoot I'm tough but not Bulletproof Gonna love out loud not afraid Gonna march down Main in the Pride Parade No closets, no shame Yes, love. No, hate. Hands up Don't shoot We're tough but not Bulletproof It's not the guns it's the trigger It's the bullet in the chamber sent to kill a stranger by a hateful deranged figure It's not the guns it's the trigger It's the bullet in the chamber sent to kill in anger by a hateful deranged figure Hands up Don't shoot We're tough but not Bulletproof Ho hey! NRA! How many souls did you kill today? Ho hey! NRA! How many deaths you facilitate? Ho hey! NRA! How many souls did you kill today? Ho hey! NRA! How many hearts did you break today? Hands up Don't shoot We're tough but not Bulletproof
