Not long ago it was alright
There were no bad dreams that kept me up at night
It was not brother against brother
Mother against mother

So tell somebody,
You've got to tell somebody
Tell somebody what happened in the USA

Now they want us to just get in line
Behind a president
When you know they spent milions of dollars
Condemning and accusing
The last one from the other side

Tell somebody, tell somebody
Tell somebody
What's happening in the USA
Tell somebody, tell somebody
Tell somebody
What happened in the USA

Tell somebody, tell somebody, tell somebody...

I want to know how far you will go
To protect our right of free speech
Because it only took a moment
Before it faded out of reach...

Oh, tell somebody, tell sombody right now
Tell somebody
What happened in the USA
I want to read about it in the news
I want to hear about it on tv, yeah
What happened in the USA
When they ask you
What happened in the USA
Tell sombody.
They'll want to know, oh people

The depth of our democracy
Is only as good as the voices of protest she protects
Voices of protest - rise!
