The First Drop

 

I'm calling out

Only echoes respond

But I scream 'til my voice is gone

Crouching in corners and hiding your face

I'm sick and tired of playing your games

 

I'm not alone

I stand amongst the voiceless

Millions in the unforgiving sun

 

Here arm-in-arm

We parade these streets

And sing our songs (and sing our songs)

 

We've had enough

Is there even anything left to explain? (We've had enough)

Am I really someone you need to restrain? (We've had enough)

Can't you listen to what we have to say? (We've had enough)

 

Unknowing, we lie and wait for the rain

To wash away what they have made

Face down in the dirt with your foot on my back

In the distance I hear thunder crack

 

C'mon Stand up !

This system of power and privilege is about to come to an end

Here come the clouds

The first drop is falling down (falling down)

 

We've had enough

Is there even anything left to explain? (We've had enough)

Am I really someone you need to restrain? (We've had enough)

Can't you listen to what we have to say? (We've had enough)

 

Our futures burn in red horizons

Ashes scattered in winds of change

Casualty numbers are rising

Now it's time to raise the stakes

 

We're meant for something more than living just to put food on our plates

I can't help but wonder--why should we participate?

 

We've had enough

Is there even anything left to explain? (We've had enough)

Am I really someone you need to restrain? (We've had enough)

Can't you listen to what we have to say? (We've had enough)
