I was screaming with the volume of a thousand unspent breaths
silenced by the bed where I dreamt about a hundred deaths
A lie is told, so brash, so bold--received as Gospel truth.
Our future sold in search of gold, tomorrow's wasted youth.

I was marching with the purpose of a thousand unspent steps
Joining in the chorus of those he disrespects
Our words, a prayer, to our land fair, we stand up for our rights.
Breathing in the air, no fear, no scare, we're ready for a fight.

Why don't you care?
Why don't you care?
Why don't you care? Anymore.

I was fighting with the anger of a thousand mighty fists
Breaking down the door, the plot begins, unwinds and starts to twist.
In my blood the heat will rise, surprise our names our on his list.
We're fed up with his lies, his cries, its time for handcuffs on his wrists.

Why don't you care?
Why don't you care?
Why don't you care? Anymore.
