Students Disrupt Legislature with Song

One of the more creative protests on the March 4 National Day of Action for Public Education, here's this amazing video of Washington students disrupting their state legislature with their own version of Amazing Grace.  Check it out:

And here's the lyrics:

Amazing Grace no longer flows,
Dammed up by greed so crude.
I once could eat, but now I find
I cant afford the food.

The bright young minds of our country
Now wake to meet their doom;
So why should we apply to school,
When close ahead lies gloom?

What will we say in years ahead
When strewn across the land
Are wretches poor in heart and soul,
By greedy robbers damned?

Remember, Aristocracy
Made bank from others toil.
I say we have the right to fruits
Weve grown on Natures soil.

Aloud, lament all ye who hope
To have a better life;
If our priorities dont change
We all will end in strife.

Awaken Creativity,
and doom we may waylay!
Lets make a plan while we still can
And birth a better day!
