Lights Keep Burning!


Break it down!
The wall of ignorance that
flowers hate
The wall of credit
that banks our fate

Tear it down!
The wall that hides
the lines of truth
The wall of hunger
that kills our youth

Break it down!
The wall that suckles the rich –
and screws the poor
The wall of silence that feeds our fear

Tear it Down!
The wall that divides
black lives from white
The wall that separates
Jew and Gentile

Break it down!
The wall that steals
mother from child
The wall of secrecy –
that hides the lies

Break it down!
The wall of oppression
choking refugees
The wall of Führer-fisted tyranny

Tear it down!
The wall of nose picking
bureaucracy
The wall of injustice you cannot see

Break it down!
The wall that enthrones
white-gloved nobility
The wall that glorifies celebrity
And their polystyrene faux realities

Tear it down!
a thousand times!
The wall that kettles liberty
The wall that enslaves our humanity.
