Are We a Nation?

“Are We a Nation?” è nata in reazione all’introduzione in Arizona nel 2010 del cosiddetto SB (Senate Bill) 1070, una legge che inasprisce controlli e sanzioni contro l’immigrazione illegale e che ha causato anche un conflitto tra lo Stato e la Federazione.

Adapted from the Declaration of Independence:
WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF EVIDENT THAT ALL ARE CREATED EQUAL AND ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN INALIENABLE RIGHTS AMONG WHICH ARE LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS…


I care, do you care?
Stand for justice everywhere
Are we a nation, divided as we fall?
We need a nation, joined heart to hand
We need a nation where we understand
(That) we are a nation
Come together, heed the call

This law of immigration, race hatred, separation
Can we find a way to come together?
Right now!!!
Both sides of the conversation
Keep the freedoms of our nation
Any points of view neglected
Civil rights are not protected
Stopped, questioned, blamed, arrested!
I wanna know is it fair? Is it fair!?

I care, do you care?
Stand for justice, if you dare
Are we a nation, divided as we fall?
We need a nation, joined heart to hand
We need a nation where we understand
(That) we are a nation
Come together heed the call

What's happenin' to democracy? Strange to me...
We all deserve justice and equality
Does the color of your skin
Determine how and when
You can be stopped and booked
For the way that you look?
Racial profile
This not freedom's style
Got to be the time to come together, right now!
Right now!

I care, do you care?
Stand for justice, if you dare
Are we a nation, divided as we fall?
We need a nation, joined heart to hand
We need a nation where we understand
(That) we are a nation
Come together heed the call

[Spoken, by YONAS] Land of opportunity, freedom and equality
I'm just tryin' to be free, they wanna bottle me
We're all victim to the immigration policy
We need change, you can save the apology
We need help, and Arizona calls
Things won't improve with the Arizona law
Give us the strength to battle through it all
'Cause when we're strong that's when paranoia falls
The rich get rich, the poor get poor
And greed for the money is the root of it all
At the same time they control us with fear
It seems nobody cares
Yo, the rich get rich, the poor get poor
And greed for the money is the root of it all
At the same time they control us with fear
But it seems that nobody cares, yeah

I care, do you care?
Stand for justice, if you dare
Are we a nation, divided as we fall?
We need a nation, joined heart to hand
We need a nation where we understand
(That) we are a nation
Come together heed the call
