In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue, for love of god and
me and you
In 1941 we intervened to stop the spread of world fascism
Listen up boys and girls it's the history of the whole world,
and you know it's true
6 million Jews they call it
genocide, 100 million Native Americans, what an unfortunate
price for today's quality of life
All people, Every person
experiences violation
When told what is right and told what is wrong and told what
to do under the threat of violent intimidation
Virus kills us now virus kills us then over and over annd again
and again
Sun goes down in my town, Berkeley California sold me on
too many dreams
Of justice and brotherhood
Sun goes down in my town, Berkeley California sold me on
too many dreams
Of peace on the earth in our time
In 1969 my forefathers said stop! this land is hers and his
and yours and mine
In 1992 Rosebud sailed the sky so blue, she gave her life for
me and you
All people, every person
experiences violation
When told what is right and told what is wrong
And told what to do under the threat of violent intimidation
Bullets kill us now bullets kill us then over and over and again
and again
Sun goes down in my town
I believe in me
I make my dreams real
