Coalhouse:
GO OUT AND TELL OUR STORY.
LET IT ECHO FAR AND WIDE.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
HOW JUSTICE WAS OUR BATTLE
AND HOW JUSTICE WAS DENIED.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
AND SAY TO THOSE WHO BLAME US
FOR THE WAY WE CHOSE TO FIGHT
THAT SOMETIMES THERE ARE BATTLES
WHICH ARE MORE THAN BLACK OR WHITE
AND I COULD NOT PUT DOWN MY SWORD
WHEN JUSTICE WAS MY RIGHT.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
MY PATH MAY LEAD TO HEAVEN OR HELL
AND GOD WILL SAY WHAT'S BEST
BUT ONE THING HE WILL NEVER SAY
IS THAT I WENT QUIETLY TO MY REST.
GO OUT AND TELL OUR STORY
TO YOUR DAUGHTERS AND YOUR SONS.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
AND TELL THEM, IN OUR STRUGGLE
WE WERE NOT THE ONLY ONES.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
PROCLAIM IT FROM YOUR PULPIT,
IN YOUR CLASSROOM, WITH YOUR PEN.
TEACH EVERY CHILD TO RAISE HIS VOICE
AND THEN, MY BROTHERS, THEN
WILL JUSTICE BE DEMANDED
BY TEN MILLION RIGHTEOUS MEN.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
MAKE THEM HEAR YOU.
I'LL BE NEAR YOU AGAIN.

Make Them Hear You Lyrics
