Charlottesville

C’Ville

 

White knights and torches 

come to save the bronze 

of Robert E. Lee

 

Black helmets and bitter forces 

come to exalt the right to 

turn flagpoles into spears

 

Bridge:

Were you there on that day?

How could anyone look away,

We were all there that day,

…in Twenty-Seventeen

 

Dark car pierces crowd of unarmed voices,

Airborne bodies no brake lights, 

shock from the left, shock from the right,

But Trump has no tongue

 

Chorus:

What if you loved her?

Can you say her name?

Oh, we all knew her, 

Heather in Twenty-Seventeen

 

Red caps and rifles

come to beat history back,

killer from Ohio,

5th Avenue president

 

White knights and torches 

come to save the bronze 

of Robert E. Lee

 

Can you say her name?

Say her name,

Oh, we all loved her, 

Heather in Twenty-Seventeen

 

Lead Out:

Ranks of hate mow the people down

and still, Trump has no tongue,

Ranks of hate mow our brothers down

And still, Trump has no tongue,

Ranks of hate mow our sisters down

And still…

 

Ranks of hate mow the people down

… no heart, no tongue, no shame…

Ranks of hate mow our brothers down

And still, Trump has no tongue,

Ranks of hate mowed our sister down

And still…
