    We Got Game (Lyrics)
     
    There’s a choice to be made
    We never used to blindly disobey
    But now, make some noise
    Never fade
    Retrace the steps of millions before us
    What is fair to get ahead?
    It’s not an even game if you can’t bid
    They don’t care
    Never did
    If we want it we will have to take it from the overfed 

    We got game
    And we were put to shame
    Acting kind
    So we came to speak our minds
    And what else?
    What else?
    What else could we do?
    Jumpcut
    Horses
    Riots

    You keep talking middle ground
    So sick of hearing about that middle ground
    This is it, you can’t go ’round
    There’s just no other middle to be found
    Like with this bunch of racist loons
    The kind of guys you wouldn’t like to spoon
    If in power
    One whisky sour
    And everyone I love would be jailed within the hour
    So…

    We got game
    And we were put to shame
    Acting kind
    So we have changed our minds
    And now what?
    Now what?
    Now what will they do?
    Jumpcut
    Horses
    Riots
    Is it true?
    Laser beam
    Swat team
    Not a dream

    I believe Paris Grey
    Singing “the sun will chase the clouds away”
    I believe what she say
    Because I want and have to believe that way

    Is it true?
    Paycuts
    Gunshots
    Riots
    Yes it’s true
    It is true
    Mind you
    It’s true
