lyrics

Dear Senator Wyden

I take pride in

The fact that you're providing

Defending not dividing

Our country and our freedom

And I thought that you should know then

The way you defend

edward snowden

Keeps me hoping



That he won't have to keep on hiding

And that you will keep on

fighting

- For our freedom and our rights and

Stand up against the tide that-

Has turned as we learned

On that November night and

I was so very frightened

But now it's time to right it



Stand up against the classist racist sexist admin

Try to reach across the aisle but don't let them get their hands in

Passing legislation causing violence and oppression

With a bipartisan sheen-

so they can front they ain't bad men



Got the Donald in there acting like he lives in Mad Men

The poorest going hungry while the richest getting fat and

The apathetic middle class is scoring high on Madden

And I can't help but feel as though the time has come to batten

batten!

Down the hatches

And light up the matches

Back-channeling with Glenn Greenwald

And Laura Poitras

Cornering James Clapper hand the NSA their asses

Time for Washington to flip their mothercucking mattress!



Yes I KNOW hillary won the popular vote

Shows there's a lot of good, that there's a lot of hope

But all that matters now is we're stuck in this boat

It's an orange tinted groping ship of racist bloat

But the voters are a lot folk we can't scapegoat!

Please listen when they're hurting and let's lift up those -



Who will be marginalized, targeted, who already have been.

Hate crimes committed but called religious freedom

Threatening our healthcare, our environment,

our lives

Threatening us on twitter out of pettiness and spite!



We've had poison in portland skies

From unregulated glass shops

Our river is polluted

And there's no sign that it will stop

The homeless folks get arrested or die out in the cold

And the rents are getting higher to make overpriced condos

So you see why there are protests

And you see why others voted—

For Drumpf because they were scared, against Drumpf cuz they do know-

That we are on a precipice

the precedent is set to

have a president that

we must dissent against



But dissent is getting silenced

Or snuffed out with violence

Which is why I thought it's time that

It's you we can confide in

So Wyden,

You know we're on your side

in Oregon

and we're all in so please keep fighting!
