Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I live in America
The home of the free and the brave
Where a 28 year old black woman
Can be jailed for not signaling
One more American
One more American
Goes down
Verse 2
I live in America
The home of the free and the brave
Where Louisiana badges shot a man already captive
With a gun fired at point blank range
One more American
One more American
Gone now
Verse 3
I live in America
The home of the free and the brave
Where the public executions don't involve the institutions
Just the impulse of the police
One more American
One more American
Taken out
Verse 4
Stand up for Sandra Bland
Stand up for Alton Sterling
Stand up for Eric Garner from the policemen circling
Stand up in New York City
Stand up in every town
Stand up for lost forgotten ones
Stand up for Michael Brown
Verse 5
I live in America
The home of the free and the brave
