about

Go Vote - In honor of New York State's day of voting in the presidential primary, here is a demo of a brand new song inspired by the chant, "Show me what democracy looks like ... This is what democracy looks like!"

Remember that the potential for all this political excitement is to really improve everyone's lives, as well as improve this planet.

lyrics

Show me what democracy looks like
This is what democracy looks like

We gather here with voices raised
So we can go back home today
To raise our food and families
And live our lives in peace

Show me what democracy looks like
This is what democracy looks like

When someone truly speaks for you
You’d better speak for them
When someone truly represents you
You’d best represent

Show me what democracy looks like
This is what democracy looks like

When you hurt, I hurt
When I hurt, you hurt
When your children hurt, I hurt too
We’re all in this together

Gay, Straight, Woman, Man
Black, White, Yellow, Red
Immigrant, or Native child
We’re all in this together

Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Christian
Sufi, Muslim, or No Religion
One Truth, Many Paths
We’re all in this together

Show me what democracy looks like
This is what democracy looks like

Health care, living wage
Education, climate change
One person, one vote
If you support the troops, bring them home

Show me what democracy looks like
This is what democracy looks like

One voice
One Voice
Echoed back
Echoed back
Becomes stronger
Becomes stronger
And stronger
And stronger

When the people speak, the truth is heard
When the people speak, the truth is heard

When the truth is heard, the people move
When the truth is heard, the people move

When the people move, we can’t be stopped
When the people move, we can’t be stopped
…. We’re all in this together

Show me what democracy looks like
This is what democracy looks like
