We Will Not Break © Kurt Griesemer 11/10/11

We will not break
Can't be broken
Can't you hear, oh can't you hear the sound?
I can't see where this is going
Feels like its all coming down...yeah it feels like its all coming down.

You want to hide, in your steel tower
And laugh at all of us who work for you
We are alive, we have the power
You'll see just what we're gonna do


You should listen, to the children
Standing outside your door
They don't want your silver dollars
Or to be your slave anymore


There's a light that shines
On everyone
It's not yours or mine
It just shines! (B7)



We will not break
We can't be broken
Can't you hear oh can't you hear the sound
But I can see, where this is going
Feel like it's all coming down.
