And every single cricket, every fish in the sea

Not quite dead, not quite alive

The simple narrative taught in every history class

And neoliberal fascists are destroying the left
Gb/Bb A chord diagramB minorBm       Daug/Bb       A chord diagramD/AD/A        D(b5)/Ab
And every politician, every cop on the street
