Is it true that everything will change now
That we’ve entered a different time ?
Or will these hopes be shattered in the morning –
And dreams of a new dawn, decline ?
How long can we breathe that heady mountain air
And sing our victory songs ?
Before we hear a chilling note of warning
Or learn the real cost to those who dare ?
Let us sing our songs of freedom
As we celebrate this day ……
Calling all to direct action
That will build a true new way.
