lyrics

Today my red white and blue wears black
When colors run like they did
No one’s coming back
Hands up
Hands up

We wake
We make our meaning
Come from mothers
Check our hearts
We love our hometowns
Feel a burn in fire
Grow apart

Brothers I didn’t know you
Brothers I didn’t know your names

Today, to one more daughter
Someone’s son
Killed in somebody else’s name

Hands up
Hands up
Hands up

How many how many years
you gonna gonna
Keep on continue to load that thing?

How many how many years
you gonna gonna
Keep on continue to load that thing?

How many how many years
you gonna gonna
Keep on continue to say that thing?

That its somebody’s fault, not ours
That its nobody’s fault that the rest of us have
lost our minds living so long inside a freefall

I want to put the top down
I want to cruise to the boardwalk
I want to dance all night with some pretty girl
and suffer in small talk
I want to watch the game
Hear Miles and Trane and
Laugh with the top down
I hope I will one day again.

I want to go to church
I want to sing in my safe place
I want to disco with my thang turndt up
I want this love
I want your love
I want to love you for nothing
I hope I’m not so scared I stop

My country tis of thee, please stop

Please Stop
(hands up)
Please Stop
(hands up)
Please Stop
(hands up)
Please Stop
(hands up)

How many how many years
we gonna gonna
Keep on continue to load this thing?

How many how many years
we gonna gonna
Keep on continue to load this thing?

How many how many years
we gonna gonna
Keep on continue to say these things?
That its nobody’s fault but ours
That its nobody’s fault that the rest of us have
lost our minds living so long inside a freefall.
