lyrics

Bullets flyin’ cross the sky

Ain’t nowhere to run and hide

All our streets are painted red

All our brothers laid to rest



Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust



Alton Sterling, say his name

Walter Scott ain’t here today

Eric Garner, he can’t breathe

Lord, oh Lord what’s happening



Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust



Florida, we can hear your cries

Carolina, Jesus Christ

Sandy Hook, my baby’s gone

Dallas, Lord what’s going on



Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust



Stomp the ground beneath your feet

Shake the dust

Shake the dust

Rattle the bones of your enemies

Shake the dust

Shake the dust



Stomp the ground beneath your feet

Shake the dust

Shake the dust

Rattle the bones of your enemies

Shake the dust

Shake the dust



Every town, a battleground

I can’t stand to sit around

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I’ve had enough

Oh, it's time to shake the dust

Silent tongues, I've had enough

Oh, it’s time to shake --- shake the dust
