lyrics

When the lights go down in Detroit you can hear the sirens singing in the air. Yeah yeah.
Its a desperate situation if you're not from here you couldn't understand.
The system works against us, they promise hope while stealing from our hand.
But you know I am a survivor, I won't play their game I've got a plan.

We can do better if we stand up together.

Brother don't you worry there's no need to fear. Think of all the struggles we have faced throughout the years. It changes your perspective when the bullet tears a hole. It's time for us to take control and do this on our own Down Jefferson.

On the streets are kids are dying, you can feel the anger in their hollow stares.
And the numbers keep on climbing, but it doesn't seem that anybody cares.
They say love can make a difference, but I swear to god my faith is growing dim.
Cuz when I stand and speak against it, the world is there to knock me down again.
Pre-chorus.
We can do better if we stand up together.

We can do better let's all come together.

No need to worry. Fear isn't worth it. Change your direction. Come with us Down Jefferson.

Brother don't you worry there's nothing left to fear. Think of all the trials we overcame through the years. It changes your direction when the bullet reaches home. Time to take control and do this on our own Down Jefferson.

This band is a celebration of every sonic movement borne of the Motor City; the well-crafted pop-soul of Motown, to the sheer in-your-face bravado of Parliament Funkadelic, to the raw untamed energy of the MC5. ... more
