Oh no, not now

The gate has been broken

We’ve seen the sun already we can’t be shushed now.

Oh no, no, no

We’ve crossed the desert on foot

We’ve stepped on scorpions, serpents and we didn't fear.

We’ve walked through seas, storms and blizzards, but that didn't stop us.

We’ve eaten, breathed and slept with the living dead, so we are not afraid to die.

Oh no, no, no

We’ve cried no to oppression

We’ve cried no to absolute power

We’ve cried no to totalitarian

We’ve cried no to racial act

This is a new era; we are our own army we do not fret to your intimidation.

Oh no, no, no

Not anymore

We stand strong

We might be bruised cosmetically, but the evolution is still evolving.

No, not now

Never again

So hush your mouth!

Let us be, let our souls finally be free.

Oh no, no, no

Not at all



We shall not be shushed!
