Oh leader, leader, you can change the board
You can close ranks, you can lock the door
But from every window, on every floor
"We're not gonna take this anymore"

Newsreader in a bad dream
Tell us what society means
Yeah, we are angry and we are sore
And we won't take this from you anymore

You can try to take us off the air
But we want our chance and we want our share
Yeah, we are sickened down to our core
And we won't take this from you anymore

We are coming with a million feet
Gonna break the gates around your street
Yeah, we are something you can't ignore
And we're not gonna take this from you anymore

You've got to get mad as hell
Got to go & ring that bell
You've got to tell the others
Tell the others
Tell the others

So teacher, teacher, come with me
They're burning books on every street
They're taking ground beneath our feet
And we cannot let this happen

We never thought to look so low
They take from those who need the most
We've got to let the others know
And we cannot let this happen

But leader, leader saw us there
He closed the window, combed his hair
He still heard something that he ignored
Went back to doing what he did before
