(Verse 1: 6/8 time)
I respect you
And I believe you try to do good

But you've gotten used to
A way of taking much more than you should
And we've let you
Get used to a comfort that more of us could

Enjoy, and feel
For once, for real
And to feel like
We're part of a team

So please please please
Understand what it means
That you're making a choice
In times like these
It will come like the tide
In a unified voice

We'll say...

(Chorus 1: 5/8 time, 3/8 polyrhythm)
...that we're here at the door
There will be many more
Don't be scared but be sure
We're prepared to endure

The wildest ride of all our lives
And if you'll fight don't be surprised
That we're hangin' on...

(Verse 2: 6/8 time)
In case you doubted
There are many more of us
Than you've counted
And we do know that it's crowded

In there but it's
Crowded out here
I just want a seat at this table
Looking for a place

That's stable enough
To stake my claim
To lay my foundation
And shout my name
So please please please
Understand I'm a friend

But I'll tell you again

(Chorus 2: 5/8 time, 4/8 polyrhythm)
That we're here at the door
There will be many more
If you just make some room
Then this place will grow too

And you could stand to clear the air
Just take my hand, there's room in there
And we're hangin' on...

(Outro: 4/4 time, 3/4 polyrhythm)
I respect you
But I have to ask you
Please hear me out
Don't you wrangle me down
Don't wrangle me down, or rein me in
