Story Behind the Song

Inspired by an NPR broadcast profiling individual protestor from different movements, this song was written from the viewpoint of a group of people preparing for a revolution.

Lyrics

Four Days More til we march upon this city
You have four more days to turn this train around
Four days more til we knock upon your armoured doors
Four days more til we tread onto your hallowed ground

We've been watching for too long now we've been waiting for the change
We've been trusting in your heavy hand and giving you the stage
There were many times we doubted, there were many times we cried
There were many times we asked if you were really on our side.

Three Days More til we march upon this city
You have three more days to turn this train around
Three days more til we knock upon your armoured doors
Three days more til we tread onto your hallowed ground

And while the answers never came and while the days drew dark and cold
While we sank even further, toward what we feared the most
We let you keep on dancing we let you keep it all
We let you keep our constitution hanging on your wall

Two Days More til we march upon this city
You have two more days to turn this train around
Two days more til we knock upon your armoured doors
Two days more til we tread onto your hallowed ground

We won't come bearing weapons we won't break down the walls
But within your sacred houses you will hear our battle calls
We will stand and shout our meaning we will sing all through the night
We will wait outside your fences til you're gone and out of sight.

One Day More til we march upon this city
You have one more day to turn this train around
One day more til we knock upon your armoured doors
One day more til we tread onto your hallowed ground

One Day More til we march upon this city
You have one more day to turn this train around
One day more til we knock upon your armoured doors
One day more til we tread onto your hallowed ground
