    They spoke so I could
    In voices loud and clear
    They said we want to be free
    for we hold everything you hold dear

    They protested so that I could
    Saying that we helped build this land
    We deserve to be treated like human beings
    and we are going to take a stand

    They tried and tried again, so that I could
    Arrested and beaten, they never gave up the fight
    We may have our scrapes and scars
    But our eyes can still see the light

    They died so that I could...
    Live
    And I'll be *****
    if I don't at least give
    half of a ****
    to remember all that they did
    So that I could...

    Vote!!!
