Raise Your Voices


Raise your voices children, freedom is at hand

The banner’s new but the cause is old

When the ghost of bigotry tries to take command

Ain’t no human being here to be sold


Mothers and fathers, time to sing out strong

Too many say one disabled is a cottage industry

Because the poison called greed is lasting too long

Robbing too many of their right to be free


Hear me golden seniors with your wisdom soul

You who gave us our breath this day

Our grandmas and grandpas you loved us whole

Now in a world denying your say


This song’s for wounded warriors from near and far

Getting diminished goods when they return home

Sisters and brothers we damn well all are

So raise your voices because you’re not alone


Raise your voices people and sing out free

Raise your voices against all that’s wrong

Raise your voices so others may see

You raise your voices for all that can be
