LYRICS ...
We All Bleed Red (Steady For Justice)

CHORUS
Steady for justice
Ready for peace
Steady for justice
United we are

Steady for justice
Ready for peace
We all bleed red
Although we're all unique
Why is it so wrong to
Help a man get on his feet
Everybody needs shelter
Everyone must eat
Liberal, conservative, independent
Immigrant and refugee

While we're steady for justice
Ready for peace

CHORUS

Steady for justice
Ready for peace
It's all been said
Without being oblique
The laws of the universe
Are nice and neat
To lift people up from the bottom of the heap
Takes more than 140 characters
Of a tweet or policies that
Prey upon the poor and week
This is not fake news only real I speak

Saying we're ready for justice
Ready for peace
CHORUS

Steady for justice
Ready for peace
Every word you say is being critiqued
Nominated, inaugurated
You've given a speech
Many people are saying resign or impeach
Women around the world
Take to the street cause justice
Sits high and firmly in her seat
At the end of the day
Still I beseech

Get up, stand up!
Stand up on your feet
Electoral victory
Popular defeat
Campaign promises are obsolete
Why not
Stand up for justice
Stand up for world peace

CHORUS

Steady for justice
Ready for peace
How many children
Are there to teach
To lend to their natural mystique
Those with eyes to see
Is who I'm trying to reach
Those with ears to hear
Let me repeat
We all bleed red
But we're all unique
White, black, brown, red, yellow
Purple or peach

We're all ready for justice
Ready for peace

CHORUS
Equal rights and justice
