We Shall Overcome

What can I do
from my tiki hut bed
just lie in disgust
of what the world said?

And if I get up to fight the fight
of others who stay and lay
Will I be locked up for rights
and into jail I’ll stay

What can I do but just proclaim
the sky is falling down
Seems the rich just have no shame
to run amuck the town

Mere words can’t change a single thing
our country built the bomb
Sticks and stones may need to sting
cuz evil can’t belong

Can’t fight a war with dreams and signs
so sad that all can’t love
More than love it’s hate that’s blind
they kill and eat the dove

Set our sights on what needs done
our hearts on what has been
Don’t stop trying, cuz what’s been won
is the future in which we win
