Teacher Teacher did you not behave
Did you teach the children war is not ok?
Why you packing up your stuff?
Did they ship you out to shut you up?
Whats Happening Here?

Soldier, Soldier did you lose a limb?
To fight a war based on a rich man's whim?
Where are all your benefits?
Did they fund the tax cuts for the rich?
Whats happening here?

Dont you know you gotta
Rise Up/ Seek the truth
Shout out loud: Whats happening here? / Whats happening here?
Dont you know you gotta
Shine a light on what you know is right
Right here Right now
And say it clear: Whats happening here? Whats happening here?

Halliburton why you always there?
Reaping profits where there's nothing but despair
From the Middle East to New Orleans
Tell me, is there no end to your greed?
What’s happening here?

So tell me why aren't we out in the streets?
Demanding our commander be impeached?
For the sinisterness in his plans
The blood of thousands on his hands
What’s happening here?

Dont you know you gotta
Rise Up/ Seek the truth
Shout out loud: Whats happening here? / Whats happening here?
Dont you know you gotta
Shine a light on what you know is right
Right here Right now
And say it clear: Whats happening here? Whats happening here?

Bridge
Devastation
Desperation
Allegations
DIS-information
Manipulation
Intimidation
Interrogations
Incarcerations

Indignation will be our saving grace...
