TURN

 

Better Turn ‘cause the hate is behind ya (x3)

 

Let the story unfold

Let the struggle be told

As the lion sleeps

The vultures grow bold

 

There’s insanity

In their supremacy

Where in silence we’re shocked

by the lies we’ve been sold

 

Better fight for the people beside ya  (x3)

 

When fears tossed our way

And all our pain has been played

We turn on our own

Like a cancer that’s grown

 

That burning cross

They now can casually hoist

While the brown and the black

Fear the supremacist voice

 

Better hold to the iron inside ya (x3)

 

Watch the steps that they take

Shake the lion awake

Hold the truth like a sword

Break their lies with your word

 

Hold high your flame

Break the back of this hate

In some higher name

Break through their righteous gate

 

You got to care or that hate will destroy us (x3)

Gotta turn ‘cause the hate is behind ya

Gotta fight for the people beside ya

Gotta hold to the iron inside ya

Gotta care for that hate to decay.
