“Refuse Fascism” Lyrics
They want to cut family ties, that have been knotted since history, With more stories than the tallest building, Small, but we are building! Brick by brick, from the wall they use to oppress us, to impress upon them! We will... Refuse Fascism Resist Hatred Right wrongs of politicians singing the same song, when we got a different tune, that's the rhythm of our heart beat, that create a musical, that allow everyone to dance, take steps to their pursuit of happiness, and we ain't happy yet, we are upset, that why we are here!?! Blood Sweat Tears Blood for the generation before and after that inherited this fight Sweat as affirmation of the work we done, doing and continue to do Tears for when we endure with and without We are here!!! Refusing Fascism Resisting Hatred Righting wrongs of politicians singing the same song, when we got a different tune, that's the rhythm of our heart beat, that create a musical, that allow everyone to dance, take steps to their pursuit of happiness, That’s why we are here in pro test
