IF THESE STONES COULD SPEAK

MONSTER

Words and music by Sheila Kirsten Hughes


David took Goliath down with one itty-bitty stone
And kings have torn their people down through the powers of their throwns
But you're feeling powerless, wonderin', "Who am I to be?"
Well there's a strength in you like no one's ever seen

How can we trust a system that serves the interests of a few?
And politicians selling out just to make a buck or two?
They're gatherin' all around gettin' ready for a feast
And we're just being used to feed the greed
They'll chew us up and spit us out
And they'll be standin' 'round, shoutin' proud

"Another one up, another one down!"
"Another one up, another one down!"
"Another one up, another one down!"
"Another one up, another one down!"

Ladies and gentlemen, there are monsters on the loose
If we don't turn this thing around they'll drag us farther from the truth
We're in a situation where injustice reigns supreme
And we're a people restrained tied to the chains of the machine
We make it work for 'em
They'll chew us up and spit us out
And they'll be standin' round shoutin' proud

"Another one up, another one down!"
"Another one up, another one down!"
"Another one up, another one down!"
"Another one up, another one down!"

C'mon, c'mon, every little step we take
C'mon, c'mon, must lead us to a brighter day
C'mon, c'mon, everybody shine some light
C'mon, c'mon, the time has come to do what's right
C'mon, c'mon, reach up for a higher truth
C'mon, c'mon, do everything that you can do
C'mon, c'mon, reach a little higher now
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon

All they're really askin' for is our quiet obedience
Everybody hush up now, don't speak a word in dissent
And in return they'll offer you a life of safety under watchful eyes
But you and I both know they're telling lies
The time has come to tear the monster down
C'mon now, we have the power

"Another one up, another one down!"
"Another one up, another one down!"
"Another one up, another one down!"
"Another one up, another one down!"
