The melody and hook of this song came to me in a dream. It is a song about things we are not told by society and things that are kept hidden from us.


The People, Our People

It always seems that we’re in a big fight
And who is wrong and who is right
Keeping secrets wonderin’ what it will be
Blinding the truth from what we see

Everthing’s fallin’ it’s toe to toe
What to do, Where to go
Pull up the bootstraps it’s up to you
Whether it’s happy or sad, excited or blue

They don’t keep telling the people
They don’t keep telling our people
They don’t keep telling the people
They don’t keep telling our people

Everyone’s quiet figurin’ what to say
Scrapin’ by, livin’ day to day
Pondering the thought is we’ll ever get ahead
Nothing done, Nothing said

Hang tight we’re the land of the free
Baby, we have the right, we hold the key
Speak up loud, tell them we won’t give up
We’ll keep our “wine” in a little ‘ol’ cup
