Sisters and Brothers are here to lift your spirits

We all can yes well can together forever

For a brighter future

We call yes we all can

L.I.D.S rap

1 2 1 2 STOP racial discrimination

We want to take the temperature of the situation:

L stands for lookout buddy with a friend

Together a message loud and clear we send

I interrupt seize the moment break the ice

Show there’s a new way, I wanna say

how I feel, I disagree with a capital D (body percussion starts)

Ok Who’s with me?

Well let’s build! X4 (body percussion ends)

a place of love and support for the target

with an S don’t be silent be a part of it!

(L.I.D.S DANCE)

L.I. D. S keep your LIDS open reach into your pocket for this handy slogan L.I.D.S keep your LIDS open reach into your pocket for this handy slogan

We all can yes well can together forever

For a brighter future x 4

(HOLD HANDS TOGETHER AND FREEZE!)

  1. You guys are awesome. We hope you come back some day, and we like your “Brighter Future”. Speaking of which, why don’t you add the newer version onto the website? There is a different version of the song on here.

  2. You guys were awesome. We hope that we see you some other day. We especially like your “Brighter Future”. Speaking of which, why don’t you add the newer version onto your website? There is only the older version there.
