Through Hate They Took Power

Every morning I wake
To some atrocity
The news would have us fear
Viruses – Violence – 
Tyranny – Fascism – 

Many want to believe
Things are getting better
Oppression awaits us – 
Every single person

Your white privilege makes
You the last target not – 
Free from the oppression
When you realize what the
Whole world is becoming
It’ll be too late to stop

There is a coup against
Us by the government
Will you submit or fight – 
Will you allow them to
Control and dominate
