We Are the Many: APEC Occupied

Read here to learn how and why he did it.

We Are the Many


Here are the Lyrics:

We come here, gather ’round the stage

The time has come for us to voice our rage

Against the ones who’ve trapped us in a cage

To steal from us the value of our wage

From underneath the vestiture of law

The lobbyists at Washington do gnaw

At liberty, the bureaucrats guffaw

And until they are purged, we won’t withdraw

We’ll occupy the streets

We’ll occupy the courts

We’ll occupy the offices of you

Till you do

The bidding of the many, not the few

Our nation was built upon the right

Of every person to improve their plight

But laws of this Republic they rewrite

And now a few own everything in sight

They own it free of liability

They own, but they are not like you and me

Their influence dictates legality

And until they are stopped we are not free

We’ll occupy the streets

We’ll occupy the courts

We’ll occupy the offices of you

Till you do

The bidding of the many, not the few

You enforce your monopolies with guns

While sacrificing our daughters and sons

But certain things belong to everyone

Your thievery has left the people none

So take heed of our notice to redress

We have little to lose, we must confess

Your empty words do leave us unimpressed

A growing number join us in protest

We occupy the streets

We occupy the courts

We occupy the offices of you

Till you do

The bidding of the many, not the few

You can’t divide us into sides

And from our gaze, you cannot hide

Denial serves to amplify

And our allegiance you can’t buy

Our government is not for sale

The banks do not deserve a bail

We will not reward those who fail

We will not move till we prevail

We’ll occupy the streets

We’ll occupy the courts

We’ll occupy the offices of you

Till you do

The bidding of the many, not the few

We are the many

You are the few

The "Gray Hairs" are out on the Streets
