Bearing witness

Standing up to tyranny
Standing up to repression
The masses gather
To say no to a farce

The armies gather
The leaders huddle
To beat back
The gathering clouds

Yet they know
The die has been cast
The revolution has begun

The streets bear witness
To the years of charades
And false words
That fail to reflect
What lives in the hearts
And the souls of the people
