Inauguration Day

THE WORLD OUTSIDE MY WINDOW

The world outside my window looks the same,
Yet something in the air screams that’s not true.
A menace nears. I dare not say its name.
There’s nothing left that anyone can do.

Yet, something in the air screams that’s not true.
Don’t give up hope. Keep fighting. Stay engaged.
There’s nothing left that anyone can do,
If we refuse to speak aloud our rage.

Don’t give up hope. Keep fighting. Stay engaged.
Be fierce, be strong, be love. United. Proud.
If you’re afraid to speak aloud your rage,
A whisper can be heard above the crowd.

Be fierce, be strong, be love. United. Proud.
Every voice is needed for this song.
A whisper can be heard above the crowd
Combined with other voices rising strong.

Every voice is needed for this song.
Singing truth to power cleans the air.
Combined with other voices rising strong
Together we accomplish all we dare.

Singing truth to power cleans the air.
A menace nears. I will not say its name.
Together we accomplish all we dare.
The world outside my window looks the same.
