Protest recorded live in NYC 11/12/2016


I don't know how it went down
I bet that you do
While everyone was looking at you
The man in the background came through
Oh and it sure feels good
To get away with things untrue
Letting the background through
letting the background through

When you leave don't come back
Your presence we could not endure
Sitting silently you'll see
The man in the background who is he
Oh and it sure feels good
To leave it all behind again
Letting the background man come in
Letting the background man come in

You ain't sure if you're gonna fight
Background man may take your life

See you next life is what I say
If I passed you on the train
My voice you won't hear come to you
You let the background through
you let the background...
