I'll take what's real tonight
Crank up the amplifiers
And just bring up the lights

Bring Up The Lights

The world is so brutal today People don't respect anything The politicians lie to our face Nothing seems to ever change

My expectations aren't that high Don't be rude or tell me lies Be kind to each other in life Obey the same laws we comply

Gunfire rings out in our schools Lives these days have no value Another mass shooting on the news Thoughts and prayers will not do

Politicians line there pockets today They no longer work for the people Making millions to look the other way They hide behind the church steeple

Let's take what's real here tonight Just fire up the amplifiers And bring up all the lights Right now, everything's alright

Corporations pollute our air Dump waste into our waterways More money so they don't care We the people are who pays

Don't drink and don't smoke That's what they always say Tax us so much we are broke Then throw our money away

Billions spent on foriegn wars While Veterans sleep in the streets Ask for help they shut the door Welcome home now struggle to eat

Our bridges keep falling down It's a battle to stay on our feet Tent cities for homeless in town D.C thinks we want everything free

I'll take what's real here tonight Just crank up the amplifiers And bring up all the lights Right now, everything's alright

Let's just bring up the lights And take what's real tonight Just turn up the amplifiers Tomorrow we'll restart the fight
