lyrics
[Hook: Jesse Jett]

This will mark another day
our insurance companies
denied another claim

We’re human beings
we have rights to our names
We deserve better
and we’ll die without a change

[Verse 1: AWKWORD]

My daughter’s sick, they denied another claim
So now we got to pick on what to spend assorted change
It’s sort of strange, with all the rich there’s all this pain
Sometimes I fantasize about sticking up a bank

I’m a husband, a father, a freakin’ law abiding citizen
So why I got to calm my child crying for her medicine
Trying to force a smile, when she cant get out of bed again
The first step is denial, is the next to pump some lead in them?

I heard a story of a dad who robbed a pharmacy
Opened up his bag, like, ‘poverty is policy’
He left a note saying, ‘Sorry, I feel horribly
To save my kid’s life I’ll be a criminal if I got to be’

That guy’s a god to me, I lost all other faith
Healthcare is a human right for all the human race
I heard they’re marching, maybe this will force a change
Tell me, how can CEOs and politicians show their face?

[Hook: Jesse Jett]

This will mark another day
our insurance companies
denied another claim

We’re human beings
we have rights to our names
We deserve better
and we’ll die without a change

[Verse 2: AWKWORD]

It’s CEOs and politicians poors are coming for
‘Cause more than 30 million of us still are uninsured
Half a million of us lose it all to pay the bills
Each and every year, this is how Big Pharma kills
Plus the 30 thousand dead from no insurance
And the workers losing coverage ’cause the boss don’t need their service
We occupied congress, bailing out big business
We march in 40 cities, ’cause its time to end the sickness

[Hook: Jesse Jett]

This will mark another day
our insurance companies
denied another claim

We’re human beings
we have rights to our names
We deserve better
and we’ll die without a change
