lyrics

Where’s the revolution?
We’ve been waiting for too long
To have our voices heard
It’s so absurd
we cannot fix what’s wrong

I know we’ve got a constitution
It doesn’t seem it’s being read
The structure built to keep us down
We must bring crashing down instead
Where’s our revolution?

Tired of the lies, tired from the truth
Burned out at both ends
As I burn through my youth
Pay for the home, pay off the degrees
Take out another loan to buy groceries

Don’t feel qualified to just start yelling
I got it better than most
But it’s still overwhelming
We’ve been asking politely but they want us dead;
Could’ve had healthcare; we got nothing instead

So tell me, Where’s the revolution?
Or do you think that it’s a game?
Another #hashtag #post to #rockthevote
While our wombs are ripped away
We need a whole new institution
We wanna finally breathe again
We watch the death toll rise through amber skies
And wonder how it’s gonna end

Complete collapse
And they won’t offer a solution
Where’s our revolution?

Now I would say that before, I was sympathetic
The videos I’d watch with horror (…That’s pathetic.)
I’m not equipped to hit the streets
I stay home at night & give the right retweets

I’ll own up to my passivity—
'Til the cops started firing at the balcony
Gotta do something new, this is not the same
We can’t stay inside playing video games

We’re in a free-fall fascist nightmare
Need a bold solution
where’s our revolution?

Where’s the revolution?
We didn’t ask for painted streets
Because the people fight
For equal rights
Abolish the police

Another pointless execution
Another human being dead
The system built to keep us down
We must bring crashing down instead

Because our lives are stolen away
To live in destitution
Because the summer lasts forever
Choking on pollution
Because the empty words they speak
Are but a mass delusion
Where’s our revolution?
Where’s our revolution?
Where's our revolution?
Where's our revolution.
