Don’t Tell Me How

A new song I’m working on. The lyrics pretty much say what I need to say today. Expect to hear it soon. xox

Verse 1:

Since the day we dropped a bomb on the world

I felt defeated, like I couldn’t find the words

How do I breathe in the shadow of the hate

How do I find my voice before it becomes too late?

Pre-Chorus:

It’s like a dream I can’t escape

With monsters tweeting to dictate

You might say just to wait it out

But this is a time we need to shout

Chorus:

Don’t tell me how I should feel right now

I can’t accept the tragedy, the complacency

No, not now

How can I hold back?

When all I love is being attacked

I won’t sit down, I won’t back down

Don’t tell me how to feel right now

Verse 2:

I walk in circles like I know where to go

I take the pill but it’s so bitter when I swallow

You want to tear us down and make us great

But who is us where do we go from hate

Pre-Chorus:

We’re supposed to act like we can’t see

The lack of grace and decency

It must be crazy to live on that throne

A demagogue who throws the largest stones

Chorus:

Don’t tell me how I should feel right now

I can’t accept the tragedy, the complacency

No, not now

How can I hold back?

When all I love is being attacked

I won’t sit down, I won’t back down

Don’t tell me how to feel right now

Bridge:

How do we stand for something that is true?

We’re told be silent that’s just what you do

But there are too many lives and dreams on the line

If you want silence, well that silence won’t be mine

Chorus:

Don’t tell me how I should feel right now

I can’t accept the tragedy, the complacency

No, not now

How can I hold back?

When all I love is being attacked

I won’t sit down, I won’t back down

Don’t tell me how to feel right now

 

Cuz I’m on fire, and I won’t be backing down

 

Vigilantly yours,

Kiran
