From the album Impulse to Dream

Lyrics

Into the Streets

We’re standing in the streets
Doctors work in the streets
Out of the taxable buildings they meet
To conduct their free healing in the street
Food vendors sharing what they have for free
Taking donations to prepare the feast
Making the king bend to his knees
Rise up, rise up Nepalese

Into the streets we go
Nepal, Ukraine, Argentina, Mexico

We’re camping on the asphalt
Tents and food planned in advance
We won’t leave until you meet our demands
This is what happens when you steal the race
Rise up, rise up in Ukraine

Into the streets we go
Nepal, Ukraine, Argentina, Mexico

Into the streets with our pots and our pans
Whatever we can bang on with our hands
We are stopping the commerce with our dance
Rise up Argentineans.

Into the streets we go
Nepal, Ukraine, Argentina, Mexico

So raise up, raise up your two hands
It is time for us to take our stand
It is time to refuse this war man’s hand
Rise up American.

Into the streets we go
Nepal, Ukraine, Argentina, Mexico
New York, Detroit, Oakland, and Chicago
