Track Name: Quarantine
Count down the days
I know I shouldn't get attached
I don't know if you'll make it out
I don't know if or when I'll feel your skin again
or your long hair down my shoulders

I know you're under quarantine
but if you reach for me
I won't turn away
I know you're under quarantine

Our time was brief
you kissed my cheek
and I knew it could be dangerous
but we never know which step will be the last one
the last one
so we'll just keep on taking chances

I know you're under quarantine
but if you reach for me
I won't turn away
I know you're under quarantine

They told me to isolate you
but I can't leave you alone
because we're all a little sick inside
and we all need we all need a little
healing

I know you're under quarantine
but if you reach for me
I won't turn away
I know you're under quarantine
Track Name: Healing
Healing
Let the bones grow together again
Let the blood flow in circles within
oh healing

Healing
Surrender spirit to the spring
face the sun to begin blossoming
oh healing

hold my hand and touch my face
erase this pain in paradise
follow the sun towards a new day
through the night

Healing
let the stars fall this way again
let the moon pull the tides on my skin to cleanse me
Track Name: Citizens United
Billionaires buying time
selling fear to our minds
building walls and dividing sides
filling our airwaves and screens with lies

but I see an awakening
seedlings pushing through the ground
oh I hear an awakening
in the morning birdsong

singing
we will grown strong
branches reaching towards the light
we will grow strong
we will grown strong
together

gather 10,000 strong
where do we begin when so much is wrong
demand to keep our voices free
and don't put money where our mouths should be

but I see an awakening
seedlings pushing through the ground
oh I hear an awakening
in the morning birdsong

singing
we will grown strong
branches reaching towards the light
we will grow strong
we will grown strong
together

hands behind in zip ties
for the crime of marching by
singing songs and carrying signs
coming from every side

I think it's time we stop - hey what's that sound? Everybody look what's going down!

They're taking voters off the rolls, misleading us with polls, and if we try to make a change, they say we're throwing votes away.

We're not going to take it anymore
we are the ones we have been waiting for

Are we citizens united?
Are we citizens united against disenfranchisement
Are we citizens united against a house divided
Are we citizens united against citizens united?

We're not going to take it anymore
we are the ones we have been waiting for

we will grown strong
branches reaching towards the light
we will grow strong
we will grown strong
together

gather 100,000 strong
where do we begin when so much is wrong
demand to keep our voices free
and don't put money where our mouths should be
