LYRICS

We found ourselves imprisoned
no justice and no peace.
Black bodies persecuted
left bleeding in the streets.

We’ve got the right to marriage,
how ‘bout the right to pee?
Keep your legislation
far away from me.

Stay away from my body,
and all my sisters too.
Just leave Roe v. Wade alone—
we’ve got so much to do.

Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?

America who are we,
fighting battles of the past?
None ‘this news is new no more,
blowing forward looking back.

Battered, driving, black and blue,
heretofore today;
living out a nightmare
that never goes away.

Femme folks of color,
targets of patriarchy,
experiencing trauma of
capt’list oligarchy.

Burn the kkk hoods
and set the hoodies free!
Until we end injustice
we’re taking to the streets!

Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?

The earth is melting quickly
weeping salty, fresh, cool tears.
Our planet’s quickly warming
in hardly any years.

Corporation pipeline blasts
poisoning our birthright.
We’re out protecting water,
it’s time to see the light.

We’re killing off our planet,
You’re killing off our kids.
When’s the killing gonna stop?
We sure as hell are done.

So let the walls fall down now,
and never build no more.
Which side are you in line for?
Which side are you on?

Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?

Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?

Are we living in a state of consciousness?
Or are we drowning slow?
Which side are you on, Sir?
Which side are you on, Bro?

The curse of Reaganomics
has finally taken toll.
This time the Depression
hit more that the Dust Bowl.

We bailing out the boss and banks,
and what of student debt?
Indentured education—
we ain’t standing for this shit!

Through intersectional
activism, we’re carving out a path;
bright future for the children—
where they can play and laugh.

Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?

Dying for the right to vote,
ancestors fightin’ hard—
our responsibility
to follow what they start.

So get out to the polls now
and vote humanity.
Choose the candidate who’s
less likely to kill me.

Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?

Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?

Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
Which side are you on now?
