Lyrics

We The People
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 7-23-2016

We the people, hear us crying out for charge
Some are lying, some are dying, some are trying to explain
You get what you came for, if you shoot where you aim

We the people, keep you grounded like a ball and chain
It's a foregone conclusion, it's a safe bet, the answer's just as right as rain
You get what you came for, if you shoot where you aim

----Chorus----
And I practice what I'm preaching
Cross my heart, stick a needle in my eye
You can light me up just like your beacon
I'll bring some brightness to your sky
When darkness hangs on the horizon
And the chill is in the air
You'll have something to rely on
I'll have something to compare
-------------------------------------------

We the people, must believe we'll never change
Some are doubting, some are pouting, most are shouting out to blame
You get what you came for, if you shoot where you aim

-Repeat Chorus-

We the people, make believe we're all the same
We the people, We the people, what a shame
You get what you came for, if you shoot where you aim


Great vocals and harmonies. The changes are very good. Instruments are done really well. The mix is very good. The hook is really good. I also really like the message. sounds great to me!!! Keep up the good work!!!

Here's a political piece that might appeal to folks on both sides of the fence, depending on how you interpret it. Judging from recent current events, this is a song for the times. Lyrics are quite thought-provoking. I like the phrase "You get what you came for, if you shoot where you aim." Great clear vocals, nice harmony. Folkies rule!

Cool song!! It has a somewhat retro feel, like the protest songs of the 60's. Vocal is passionate and well delivered. The instrumentation and melody are just what is needed to support the theme.....energetic and optimistic. Great stuff!
