Today we are Champions of children capriciously imprisoned
And parents whose hearts have been shattered.
We willingly stand in the gap, as Champions do,
Between those who lead and those who can’t speak
Demanding absolute justice and compassion from our elected.
It’s really not so much to ask.
Today we are Champions.
We acknowledge that this fight is not over
We understand that a Champion follows through
One action begets another, and then another
And we commit to the last motion and the final moment.
Tomorrow we’ll be Champions.
While marching in unison is right and resonates
It is only the pre-game show, it’s only the first step.
Now that we’re home, we’ve got to call our leaders,
Remind them that children need their parents.
We’ve got to sacrifice a latte once a week
For a candidate that will bring dignity back to the Democracy.
When it’s all said and done we’ll be Champions.
We’ll vote so hard that we’re exhausted, but that’s okay.
‘Cause Champions push through even when they’ve nothing left to give.
They know that others depend upon them,
And there’s only one possible outcome: victory.
Bomb us with a twitter storm, pollute our air with lies.
Our resolve is only strengthened, our conviction just more clear.
We are Champions today and forever,
For families and democracy,
We will not be deterred.
