A Billion Strong

about

If we all work together, we can't lose. This song is inspired by the great Greta Thunberg, and it's the first single from our upcoming album, The Land Of California.

lyrics

Stepped outside in lonely cold
To stop a warming world
Sat alone. A paper sign
A swine-resistant pearl

A single voice above the din
Of smoking engines laughing
Hoping that somebody else
Would only pause
And join the cause

It’s all I’m asking
Come along
We’re a billion strong
Call out all
And make it better

It’s all I’m asking
Come along
We’re a billion strong
Call out all
And make it better

Walked along, a single-minded
Sea of human purpose
And not alone, another sign
A swell beneath the surface

So raise your voice above the din
Of politicians crying
Time for everybody else
To only pause
And join the cause

It’s all I’m asking
Come along
We’re a billion strong
Call out all
And make it better

It’s all I’m asking
Come along
We’re a billion strong
Call out all
And make it better

It’s all I’m asking
Come along
We’re a billion strong
Call out all
And make it better

It’s all I’m asking
Come along
We’re a billion strong
Call out all
And make it better
