There's a time to be civil, and a time to be nice
That time has long passed. Let me be more precise
The courts are packed, the odds are stacked against us
Defenseless. Every ruling is contentious
Disrespect leads to discontent, and
Disjointed disturbance disseminates dissent
We take to the streets with our fists climbing higher
Vilified by liars who conspire in cipher
They don't give a shit about the will of the people
Unspeakable legal sequels conceive the irredeemable
Where's the justice in disturbing the peace
They're disloyal tenants overstaying their lease
A lifetime appointment is a lifetime too long
To decide on whose morals are right and wrong
They're swinging the gavel at our human rights, so
Polite discourse is dead: now's the time to fight
The judicial branch is bearing poisoned fruit
And we've solemnly sworn we've seen the death of truth
Revolution creeps closer as discomfort grows
Brace yourself as the country burns out and implodes
A state's right to govern should not supersede
The bodily autonomy of a person in need
Anyway all the arguments are straw man at best
The logic falls apart under a little bit of stress
No contest. Oppression is historic to our nation
Subjugation is the subject of subsequent aggravation
Our foundations are fracturing due to red gerrymandering
And the virtue signal photo ops from democrat pandering
Call me a cynic but I've got no hope to muster
Until we figure out how to abolish the filibuster
I trust you've heard that absurdity. Salvation's in sight
Polite discourse is dead: now's the time to fight
If you read your nation's history and all you feel is pride
What you read was propaganda that was trying to hide
The shame of a government's horrible heinous acts
Indulge me for a moment. Let me list you some facts
The Dyer anti-lynching bill of 1918
Was persistently halted by Southern filibustering
It wasn't until March of 2022
That the Emmett Till Antilynching act was passed through
In Plessy v Ferguson segregation was allowed
The shroud of which wasn't lifted until Brown came around
Which sounds like a good thing out of 1954
But where are the reparations? Are you ready for more?
1944. The second world war
Anti-Asian racism is laid at our door
Korematsu v US is how the court decides
That interning Japanese Americans is justified
If you think the past has no effect on the present
I have an interrogative that might be unpleasant
How many billionaires are folks of color?
If we're truly equal, that should make you wonder
Question the structure, reject the status quo
Don't let those in power diminish what we know
When we band together we can overcome our plight, so
Polite discourse is dead: now's the time to fight
We the People of the United States
In Order to form a more perfect Union
Establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility
Provide for the common defense
Promote the general Welfare
And secure the Blessings of Liberty to
Ourselves and our Posterity, do proclaim
Polite discourse is dead; now's the time to fight
