Within the silence we sit in
pause for one second
for the darkest occasions all the time come earlier than the daybreak
And in these darkish occasions we nonetheless wake to a rising solar
To forged our vote
For our voices might be heard within the ballots, within the cubicles
We forged our vote
for democracy depends upon it
for equality, justice, peace
might be constructed from it
We tirelessly communicate
to construct the nation
we hope our kids will see
Vote in opposition to hate
dare not acclimate to a society
that’s constructed to discriminate.
Vote together with your head and your coronary heart
Allow us to be a part of a peaceable nation not divided by hate and indignation
It begins with imaginative and prescient
Now make your determination
