Burning Down

Burning Down
By Ellie Grace

I wrote this song on September 28th, 2018, in response to the personal and collective pain of witnessing the oppression and violence perpetuated by the patriarchal system on full display in the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.

You would hold her down and silence her cries
And you would stand by him even though you know he lies

But your time is up
You must face the fire
That is rising up
Watch the flames grow higher
Count us one by one
We will not turn around
Until the patriarchy
Is burning down

You would sacrifice a woman in her darkest hour
At the altar of your privilege and power

The sun will shine on the truth of your dirty ways
We believe her and are counting down your days
