Verse

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 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

L. I. D.S sisters and brothers keep your LIDS open!

 Bridge

The chorus and bridge of this track was written within stage 1 of Sisters and Brothers. Our fam at Diversitat will be writing the verses.

Chorus

You have the wisdom to name it, racial discrimination

You have the strength to step in, bystander intervention

You have the power to speak up, pull out your LIDS yeah

Stand up for your sisters and brothers x 1

Verse 1

Everyone come together oh yeah, can you feel the cultures flow over there?

Don’t forget about the beat box pff pff, we wanna make peace through hip-hop

Don’t judge me I won’t judge you, join the crew with a positive attitude

How about you? right there right there, how about you? right there!

Verse 2

Let us unite and show respect for all people

Look at the bright side with hope in your heart

Live happy for the future, as equals

No bad situations, we’re friends from the start

Spreading, a good message, through lyric.

Supporting eachother, encourage good spirit.

Rich, in culture, we have so much to share

Consideration and love feel it in the air!

Verse 3

Stand up for your rights,

Right to be safe Right to be free

Right to have an education.

Freedom of culture, freedom to choose in

A positive way for our future to live in- REPEAT 3 TIMES.

  1. I think that we should all get along even if we have different colour skin it doesn’t matter. We all have same colour blood. It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside it matters what is on the inside.

  2. Bianca Gillett is right, me myself, I’m Chinese and if you witness racism, don’t be scared to help someone…
