The Lyrics

When it comes to this topic, I was originally going to consider using Modest Mouse's song "Strangers to Ourselves." Particularly since they are an Oregon band. However, the OS seems to foreshadow much of current events when released in 2015. Any kind of alteration would be too on the nose. Anyways, I switched it up. Enjoy.
(Instrumental Intro with Ohhhh’s)

(Verse 1)
Weather, changing
My state, together
Whether, you are black or blue

There’s a, new sickness
My mind’s, vicious
And we are, gonna start a coup

Uhhhhh (x19)

(Verse 2)
People, fight back
Fill up, that knapsack*
Remember, when you last had helped your cause

If the people, were informed
Our stories from statues are, left to be scorned
We’re just millennial and gen Z revolution
Putting every bad thing to flame
And we won’t get hit with the blame

Uhhhhh (x19)

(Outro)
Hear our, message reach your business
You can expect to just grimace if your
Employer sends the pink slip, when postings, are wrong

(Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh!
Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh!
Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh!) (x2)

Hear our, message reach your business
You can expect to just grimace
Hear our, message reach your business
You can expect to just grim-grimace

Your safer to walkaway!
* = Alternate line "Dress up, all in black". Didn't like wanting to repeat myself, even if I could have changed an earlier line to "brown and blue."
