If You Lessen Your Anger

If you lessen, lessen your anger
If you lessen, lessen your anger
Anger at the structures of power
Anger at the structures of power
Then you low, lower your love
for the victims of that power
You low low low, lower your love.

(optional other verses)

2. If you soften, soften your outrage
If you soften, soften your outrage
Outrage at the vict’ry of greed
Outrage at the vict’ry of greed
Then you low………..greed

3. If you dampen, dampen your fire
If you dampen, dampen your fire
Burning ’cause the deck has been stacked
burning ’cause the deck has been stacked
then you low……………scam

4. Never lessen, lessen your anger
Never lessen, lessen your anger
Anger at the structures of power
Anger at the structures of power
Never low…..power
