Nasty Weather

lyrics

You got words for people like me
You think it hurts when you call me "nasty"
Well you can't hurt me just as long as I stand free
and I can stand long as my sisters stand with me

A storm is coming, something's rolling in
You're not a winner just because you win
I know you feel it prickle on your skin
Enough whispers make a howling wind

And we're in for nasty weather
We're in for nasty weather
We gotta stick together
We're in for nasty weather
One snowflake is a drop in the fountain
but avalanches move mountains

Once we're awake we can't go back to sleep
Make every chant a promise that you keep
I know we marched but can we walk the walk?
Behind the earthquake comes the aftershock

We're in for nasty weather
We're in for nasty weather
We gotta stick together
We're in for nasty weather
One snowflake is a drop in the fountain
But avalanches move mountains

Black and white, immigrant and native
let's elevate, let's get legislative
It's time the system was rearranged
Let's bring about a social climate change

Give 'em some nasty weather
let's give 'em nasty weather
We gotta stick together
Give 'em nasty weather

One snowflake is a drop in the fountain
One snowflake is just a drop in the fountain
One special snowflake is just a drop in the fountain
But avalanches
Avalanches move mountains
