We are the many

Publié le par Petra

Ye come here, gather 'round the stage 
The time has come for us to voice our rage 
Against the ones who've trapped us in a cage 
To steal from us the value of our wage

From underneath the vestiture of law 
The lobbyists at Washington do gnaw 
At liberty, the bureaucrats guffaw 
And until they are purged, we won't withdraw

We'll occupy the streets 
We'll occupy the courts 
We'll occupy the offices of you 
Till you do 
The bidding of the many, not the few

Our nation was built upon the right 
Of every person to improve their plight 
But laws of this Republic they rewrite 
And now a few own everything in sight

They own it free of liability 
They own, but they are not like you and me 
Their influence dictates legality 
And until they are stopped we are not free

We'll occupy the streets 
We'll occupy the courts 
We'll occupy the offices of you 
Till you do 
The bidding of the many, not the few

You enforce your monopolies with guns 
While sacrificing our daughters and sons 
But certain things belong to everyone 
Your thievery has left the people none

So take heed of our notice to redress 
We have little to lose, we must confess 
Your empty words do leave us unimpressed 
A growing number join us in protest

We occupy the streets 
We occupy the courts 
We occupy the offices of you 
Till you do
The bidding of the many, not the few

You can't divide us into sides 
And from our gaze, you cannot hide 
Denial serves to amplify 
And our allegiance you can't buy

Our government is not for sale 
The banks do not deserve a bail 
We will not reward those who fail 
We will not move till we prevail

We'll occupy the streets 
We'll occupy the courts 
We'll occupy the offices of you 
Till you do 
The bidding of the many, not the few

We'll occupy the streets 
We'll occupy the courts 
We'll occupy the offices of you 
Till you do 
The bidding of the many, not the few

We are the many
You are the few
