about

This song is reflection on the internal bias that we have toward people and the othering that we cast upon them. It is an attempt to engage people who are non-BIPOC in the conversation of privilege and how we can work to keep it in check.

lyrics

You are the product of choices that your ancestors
Made on the way
Leading to you.

Do you remember the horror that was inflicted
Upon the others?
No, that wasn't you...

And now those whose forebearers had not the choice
You wonder why they've such an angry voice
Surely a handful of decades has made them free
Like you and me...

Not all cages have bars
Some live on in our gaze

Oh and far be it for us to notice the gate
When we sleep on the other side where it's safe

And the dogs running wild with our trust
Through the field where the others still sleep in the dust
Surely they'll bite in ways that are just
Why are those in their jaws blaming us?

Our world is the product of the choices that we are making
Stand and be counted
It's time to choose.
