‘(Alternative) Facts’ — Lyrics To An Anti-Trump Rock Protest Song

This is just me screwing around with writing lyrics while listening to Rage Against The Machine. The Trump Administration has a way of coining phrases that could be used as song titles.

tell me the truth
don’t lie to me
tell me the truth
don’t lie to me

I know what I can see with my own eyes
you can try to tell me otherwise
I’m not buying your lies
I’m not buying them at all
you can’t get me to believe
you can’t deceive me
you can’t deceive me
you can’t deceive me

won’t buy your alternative facts
won’t listen to your lies
won’t buy your alternative facts
won’t listen to your lies

we the people know the truth
we can’t argue about facts
the people know the truth
we know what is real
soon enough you’re going to have to deal
nothing will stop us
nothing will stop us on our quest
we won’t rest until
we achieve victory

we know what is real
we don’t need your alternative facts
we are going to show you what we feel
in the streets you will hear us roar
there’s no doubt you’ll know the score
once we have our way
you won’t have anywhere to stay

won’t buy your alternative facts
won’t listen to your lies
won’t buy your alternative facts
won’t listen to your lies

[bridge]
nothing will stop us
just you wait and see
we won’t rest until we have victory

there’s rest for us
here we come
in the streets you’ll hear us hum
there’s nothing you can do
that will stop us from following through
