about

I am donating all profits from the sale of this track to the organizations involved to help fight for our students, teachers, and everyone supporting our children in the public school system.

After several attempts to meet with Governor McCrory to discuss the state of education in NC, members of the group Organize 20 20 marched 23 miles to the Governor's Mansion to get his attention. When they arrived, the building was locked (during business hours), and Governor McCrory yet again refused to meet with them. The group was made up of students, teachers, and other public school system workers. In protest, they blocked the intersection outside the mansion with a human chain, and 14 people were arrested.
This story made my blood boil; what could be controversial about discussing education? Our students deserve the very best, not the very worst. Is it about race? Is it about class? I just don't understand, and it's time to change.
I won't go over the many worrying statistics surrounding NC education here, but instead point you to the Organize 2020 website here for more info:http://www.organize2020.com/mission/

lyrics

I've been going all night
I've been scratching my head
I've been breaking my back
Trying to shake up your bed
Oh, but southern man
You don't feel nothing
You don't feel nothing

I've been standing in line
I've been waiting my turn
I've been holding my breath
While my babies burn
Oh, and I'm sick and tired
Of getting nothing
Of getting nothing

So tell me who you're fighting for
'Cause it ain't me
It ain't me
And tell me who you're hiding from
'Cause we all see
We all see

Ooh you think you're so good baby
Ooh you think you're so safe up there
Ooh the world it just works that way
Ooh we don't get a say
But there's a change coming
There's a change coming
There's a change coming

I've been banging my drum
I've been marching for days
I've been praying on love
Like your good book says
Oh but southern man
You ain't learned nothing
You ain't learned nothing

So tell me who you're fighting for
'Cause it ain't me
It ain't me
And tell me who you're hiding from
'Cause we all see
We all see

Ooh you think you're so good baby
Ooh you think you're so safe up there
Ooh the world it just works that way
Ooh we don't get a say
But there's a change coming
There's a change coming
There's a change coming
And
Ooh you think you're so good baby
Ooh you think you're so safe up there
Ooh the game i just works that way
Ooh we don't get to play
But there's a change coming
There's a change coming
There's a change coming
