Ted James – Our Future (feat. Jennifer James)

Bridge: Ted James

We will not take another back seat to your cuts
You’ve broken trust with the people grinding dreams into dust
Stained our safety net with rust courting free market lust
Through the business of your bluster, pushed our patience to the cusp
Of a massive demonstration marching swiftly towards the dome
Working class determination: that resonates from in our bones
We’ll organize a delegation, ensure the seeds of change are sown
Our future, our Texas, we will occupy our home

Verse One: Ted James

Precious pennies get pinched, can’t move an inch
Paradise can’t exist getting squeezed by the rich
Stagnant wages, no glitch, just an economic stitch
In the fabric of a society dangling over the fiscal cliff
The whole model is adrift without a job to uplift
When that college loan debt is all regret, something shifts
Watch the time tick, tick, we on the line, picket’s thick
They have managed the decline but we’ll rebuild it brick by brick

Chorus: Ted & Jennifer James

Stand up, be heard, and get on the bus
We’re gonna march and yell, we’re gonna make a fuss
The fight is hard and the road is long
Our future’s bright when the union’s strong (Repeat)

Bridge: Ted James

We will not take another back seat to your cuts
You’ve broken trust with the people grinding dreams into dust
Stained our safety net with rust courting free market lust
Through the business of your bluster, pushed our patience to the cusp
Of a massive demonstration marching swiftly towards the dome
Working class determination: that resonates from in our bones
We’ll organize a delegation, ensure the seeds of change are sown
Our future, our Texas, we will occupy our home

Verse Two: Ted James

Voodoo profiteers play tricks on our careers
Pull a quarter out the ear to make our pensions disappear
We give blood, sweat, and tears; 25 to 30 years
Punch in here, don’t interfere, this is how they domineer
In the Lear so cavalier, looking down at the austere
Daily grinding of the gears, keep us minding out of fear
Until the unionists appear, on the steps to make it clear
The time for bargaining is near; we will persevere

Chorus: Ted & Jennifer James

Stand up, be heard, and get on the bus
We’re gonna march and yell, we’re gonna make a fuss
The fight is hard and the road is long
Our future’s bright when the union’s strong (Repeat)
