lyrics

Tears - how could you gas your brothers
Fear - doesn’t make you god man
Years - of oppressive violent rage
Fuel the hate change your ignorance

Social inequality
Justice a mockery
Afflictions of poverty
The American dream is fraudulent scheme

Fatherless families are norm
Mother struggles all alone
Society disinformed
Degenerating into a lower life form

Hands up universal surrender
Gunned down police state offender
Protect and serve, the lower class
They intimidate and harass

social control through the ages
sad how nothing really changes
reward society who conforms
punish deviants breaking norms

Open your mind now
Elevate and educate
Decriminalize
Legalize and organize
Reverse regression
Reactivity begets stupidity

Rage! - Frustration and the anger!
Cry! - ‘cause we have no answers
Home - of the brave, Land of the free
They keep trying to take from me

Free your righteous indignation
Don’t! - hold back cathartic tears
No one can detain your spirit
The truth can only set you free

our flag still flies - no surrender
no room for hate - no more despair
cruel pack of lies - they tyrannies
crime rate hot plate - they brutalize
impoverished - they barbarize
apologize - no more reprise

Social inequality
Justice a mockery
Afflictions of poverty
The American dream is fraudulent scheme

how come in this day and age
we still feel all of this rage
your name’s in the title page
but we are in need of something to set the stage

Teach! - the youth and let them lead
Our! - Responsibility
So - be the change you want to see
stand for something and that's the key

Know! - your rights or you will lose them
Stand! - for what you believe
Truth is an offence but not sin
our freedom will begins within

our flag still flies - no surrender
no room for hate - no more despair
cruel pack of lies - they tyrannies
crime rate hot plate - they brutalize
impoverished - they barbarize
apologize - no more reprise

about

Luna Sopor California

Luna Sopor began as the brainchild of Jeff Janow and Troy Szabo while working together in 2008. They wanted to create a band that played driving original music, and allowed them to combine different playing styles which are derivative of their past and modern influences. Marie Szabo joined as drummer, and the three started writing songs together. ... more
