  • Speak Truth to Power - light rock

    30 views 3 months ago
    Song I wrote in 1986 for a libertarian song contest. I won! Definitely most melodic of the several "Speak Truth to Power" songs on youtube that were written after that date. Lyrics below.

    SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER

    VERSE
    You see injustice. You see despair.
    You know the ones on top, well,
    They just don't care.
    You've got the answer. You know the score.
    Why are your waitng? What are you waiting for?

    CHORUS
    Speak truth to power. Speak openly.
    Speak truth to power, then you'll be free.

    VERSE
    You are too humble. You are too meek.
    Don't need to be a muscle man
    to open your mouth and to speak
    Speak out with anger or
    Speak out with love.
    Don't need to roar like a lion
    To reach the hard hearts you must reach.

    REPEAT CHORUS

    BRIDGE
    Power is like a might rock perched on the edge of a cliff.
    One little whisper might blow it away.
    A million can do it it, yeah, if we . . .

    REPEAT CHORUS
