Fist Up in the Air

 
Spitting the truth for some must feel like fire
The burn will their turn their stomachs into knots
It will churn and stir because itís hard to hear
Especially when standing up for the have nots

Speaking hard facts might fall on some deaf ears
They donít like to face reality outside the bubble
But if you take a knee or put a fist up in the air
Then suddenly they think youíre looking for trouble

Along with that fist I also like to give a middle finger
So the emotion lingers a little deeper in their minds
Weíve got to pay attention to the real issues here
And for heavens sake, learn how learn to read the signs

These are the days when we keep pushing for change
Wake up and discover the true source of all this anxiety
When the one percent control the other ninety-eight
Something is wrong with the foundations of society
