We're Still Here

Yes we can cause a lot of trouble if you send our children to fight and to die
Or poison the food or try to delude us with ads that blatantly lie
Our children have minds meant for learning 
If there is a god, then god lives in them 
Books are not meant for burning  
What is it you feel that you must condemn?
But no matter how hard you push us around, there is something around the bend

We're still here 
Choosing love over fear  
When the lines are drawn we’re still here
We’re still here making it perfectly clear 
When the lines are drawn we’re still here

No matter how much you love to hate us, and fear is driving a stake in your heart
As long as the stars shine bright in the sky then love will keep doing its part
Yes, you may try to stop the music 
But music has wings and flies over the walls
It’s there when we dance and when we romance 
It’s there when the dictator falls
But no matter how hard you push us around, there’s one thing you need to recall

Sometimes we get sad and discouraged 
As old friends die and dreams slip from our grasp
But much as we treasure our memories, we don’t live in the past
Years can bring us grey hair and wrinkles 
And wisdom as well, I hasten to say
With walkers and canes we are standing 
Between young people and harm’s way
And your job just got harder today
Because

We're still here    
Choosing love over fear
When the lines are drawn we’re still here
We’re still here, making it perfectly clear
When the lines are drawn we’re still here
When the lines are drawn we’re still here
