lyrics

Action
Doin’ it a to z until i feel so free
Action
I don’t care if you refuse to see, i gotta put it into
Action, action
Consider this a sign of an emergency
Who’s gonna do it if i don’t do it?
I’m tired of being scared
(tired of being scared)
I’m so tired of being scared
(tired of being scared)
Scared for our children, i’m scared for my children
Tired of being scared for the mothers and the fathers
And brothers and sisters
Action
Gotta share the truth that’s inside me
This is an emergency
Of the highest and fullest and the final degree
Oh i’m still crying to be free
Don’t let this separate you and me
Oh please
Who’s gonna do it if i don’t do it?
Action, action
Doin’ it a to z until i feel so free
Action
I don’t care if you refuse to see, i gotta put it into
Action, action
Consider this a sign of an emergency
Who’s gonna do it if i don’t do it?
