Our founders claimed to be
True to democracy.
Sadly they lied.
They came from ‘cross the sea
All shouting “liberty”
While committing hypocrisy
A-and genocide.

Our wealth was built on backs
Of Red and Brown and Black
Of them we sing.
Racism, fear and greed
Can never, ever feed
The democratic seed
That makes freedom ring!

Trump wants to build a wall
To keep one and all
Brown people out.
Our corp’rate politics
Is what created this
It’s something no wall can fix.
We must kick Trump out!

We must do more than shout.
We must now bring about
Justice for all!
The barriers between
The races we’ve all seen.
It’s time to wipe the future clean.
