about

Jon Lindsay, American Aquarium, Caitlin Cary, Kaitlin Grady, John Plymale and others teamed up for this single (originally released via Redeye Distribution on 9/2/14), which directly confronts the new regressove Voter ID laws in NC. This is the official follow-up to the 2013 NC Music Love Army LP, "We Are Not For Sale: Songs of Protest" (11/26/13).

lyrics

you are on the wrong side of history, like Wallace back in '63
so you'll go down eventually, to folks like King and Kennedy
I vote you are an absentee from human kindness, decency:
the hitman for the GOP, who seek sanction liberty
oh my dear mr. mccrory

when you were a young man did you wanna be
the person here before us today?
might as well be down at the school house, blockin’ the way
was it part of your plan for to come and worsen
the people’s plight day after day?
the poster child champion for the voices of hate?

a state school ID’s still a state ID, just be a man don’t lie to me
if you feel that minorities do not deserve equality
you are on the wrong side of history, and books in every library will see it just the same as me, yeah, this will be your legacy
oh my dear mr. mccrory

when you were a young man did you wanna be
this person here before us today?
might as well be down at the school house, blockin’ the way...
