SHAKE THE DUST

Bullets flyin’ cross the sky

Ain’t nowhere to run and hide

All our streets are painted red

All our brothers laid to rest

 

Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust

 

Alton Sterling, say his name

Walter Scott ain’t here today

Eric Garner, he can’t breathe

Lord, oh Lord what’s happening

 

Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust

 

Florida, we can hear your cries

Carolina, Jesus Christ

Sandy Hook, my baby’s gone

Dallas, Lord what’s going on

 

Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust

 

Stomp the ground beneath your feet

Shake the dust

Shake the dust

Rattle the bones of your enemies

Shake the dust

Shake the dust

 

Stomp the ground beneath your feet

Shake the dust

Shake the dust

Rattle the bones of your enemies

Shake the dust

Shake the dust

 

Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it's time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I've had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust
