about

Work-in-progress single version of BNLX's *emergency* track written in response to the current political situation. This track features the contribution of many guest vocalists in the "Resist! Resist!" bridge section, and the mix will be updated as additional people add their voices to the song.

lyrics

Resist, resist on your home ground
In this town and the surrounding
Countryside, suburbia
Fight the hatred going round

Shout down every dog whistle
Security fantasy, pointless wall
We can’t let them turn back the clock
We’re moving forward, we won’t stop

Gotta drive the fascists out

Reject the new normal
Expose their fake news thought control
Alternative facts are at an end
If they tell more lies, smash them down again

Stand up for diversity
And a fact-based view of reality
Fight their policies of intolerance
Resist, resist, make a difference

Gotta drive the fascists out

(resist, resist) do it for the kids
(resist, resist) show them that you’re better than this
(resist, resist) push back against the lies
(resist, resist) keep on moving, keep alive
(resist, resist) for the ones who stood before
(resist, resist) and for the ones who need it more
(resist, resist) for your city, for your state
(resist, resist) and people that you’ll never meet far away
(resist, resist) You can be the change
(resist, resist) We can be the change
(resist, resist) Do it for the future
(resist, resist) and for your soul

Gotta drive the fascists out
Gonna drive the fascists out
Gotta drive the fascists out
