I was talking to a young man at a party in these war days
And he asked me my thoughts
I talked about peace, fighting for the people, he scowled than walked away
Told me my views are fucked

We screamed, we cry, the message has amplified
But they won’t hear the people’s voice
We screamed, we cry, the message has amplified
But they won’t hear the people’s voice
Common suits its time to show us something
You know its time for better days
Common suits its time to show us something
Just get your hearts out front, and prove your something

Remember being proud, remember feeling loved, remember when leaders gave sacrifice
I believe all men don’t have a price
Truth in the state of the union address
Truth in this political process
I should not have to sing for this

We screamed, we cry, the message has amplified
But they won’t hear the people’s voice
We screamed, we cry, the message has amplified
But they won’t hear the people’s voice
Common suits its time to show us something
You know its time for better days
Common suits its time to show us something
Just get your hearts out front, and prove your something
Try out your voice, now use it, now use it, we are the people
Try out your voice, now use it, now use it, we are the people
Try out your voice, now use it, now use it, we are the people
Try out your voice, try out your voice, just try out your voice
Now use it, now use it, we are the people

    General CommentWhen I saw Big D in concert, they said that this song was for the White House.
    And I have the White House's number in my cell phone, so I called em... TWICE during this song. And then again on another person's phone.
