#PersistResistandBloom

lyrics

If the roses in the rocks can bloom,
then I'd better get to bloomin' too.
Persist, Resist, and Bloom.
Persist, Resist, and Bloom.

If the roses in the rocks can bloom,
then I'd better get to bloomin' too.
If the roses in the rocks can bloom,
so can I.

Not like it's rocket science,
or even prickly pear marinade.
You know what they say about life and lemons.
Pour me some of that lemonade.

Rich vs. Poor ain't nothing new.
Artists and fools still speaking truth to power,
well what about you?
Yeah, what about you?

See, I'm not afraid to fight for change.
I am here to be the change we wanna see.
Springtime comes on back around.
Blossom feeds the honeybees and
sweet little seeds keep breaking free.

If the roses in the rocks can bloom,
then I'd better get to bloomin' too.
Persist, Resist, and Bloom.
Persist, Resist, and Bloom.

If the roses in the rocks can bloom,
then I'd better get to bloomin' too.
If the roses in the rocks can bloom,
so can I.

It's hard to kill a rosebush.
Why would you wanna try?
We all share the water,
the starry sky, the food supply,
so grow your thorns, my people.
We've still got plenty of sun.
We are the wild and rainbow roses
whose colors will not run.

Wild roses keep on climbing,
no matter who's in charge.
Our truth has always been here.
The future still is ours.

Wild roses keep on growing,
no matter who's in charge.
Our truth has always been here.
The future still is ours.

Wild roses keep on blooming
no matter who's in charge.
Our truth has always been here.
The future still is ours!

Better get to bloomin'.
Persist, Resist, and bloom.
If the roses in the rocks can bloom,
then I'd better get to bloomin' too.
If the roses in the rocks can bloom,
so can I!
