about

Respectfully dedicated to Colin Kaepernick

lyrics

Dissent has long been an American trait
One of the things that makes America great
But now dissent is coming under attack
By those who only see the white and the black

The great divider must be stopped in his tracks
No better time to take America back
From those who would divide us
For those who walk beside us

Stand tall, stand proud, stand free
Take a stand now, take a knee

America has always been a big melting pot
Your color shouldn't change the odds you'll get shot
Philando [Castille], Alton [Sterling], Tamir [Rice],
Trayvon [Martin], Michael [Brown], and Freddy Gray
Why are their killers always walking away?

Today we honor those who'll never come back
Whose crime was nothing more than "Living While Black"
Their spirit lives inside us
Their memory will guide us

Stand tall, stand proud, stand free
Take a stand now, take a knee

Some people say "respect the flag"
They miss the point and that's a drag
Dissent is what the flag's about
You see injustice? CALL IT OUT!

It isn't black and white
It's one for all
We stand united
Or divided we fall
