"Resist, Stand Up, Fight Back"

The Official Anthem of #TheResistance

Like millions of other people across the country, the results of the 2016 Election hit me pretty hard. The thought of a thin-skinned, racist, xenophobic, demagogue being the leader of the free world was and still is absolutely terrifying.

Let's face it. Every single day of this administration has been a complete and utter nightmare. Jobs are being lost. Rights are being taken away. Hope is being destroyed.

Even in the face of such adversity, I am pleased to be able to say that the rise of #TheResistance is growing with each passing day. From marches on Washington to movements online, the good people of this country are coming together, rising up, and fighting back against the greatest threat we've seen in a generation...Donald J. Trump.

As a musician, it has been especially hard watching Trump slowly chip away at funding for the arts and sciences. That is why I felt it was important for me to try and do something to help #TheResistance. Anything. I wanted to create something that gave people their hope back.

It's my belief that my song, "Resist, Stand Up, Fight Back" can do just that.

Resist, Stand Up, Fight Back
Words and Music by Xavier Gonzalez Jr.

What have we done
A monster’s taken over, everyone
Where have we been
The future for our children’s caving in

We’re tired of lies
They’ve had their time
So this we sing

Resist, Stand Up, Fight Back
This is our moment now

What can we do
The man up in the tower’s just a fool
How can we be
When the truth and all the facts are so hard to see

We’re tired of lies
They’ve had their time
So this we sing

Resist, Stand Up, Fight Back
This is our moment now

We only have each other
We are just sisters and brothers
There’s never been a greater time
For people to unite


(SPOKEN WORD)

We’re tired of the lies
All this hate
And Russian spies
What do we do
When a man who mocks the weak
Is in charge of the peace we seek
This can’t be the end of the fight
No, this is our time
Our moment
Our duty to stand and reject hatred
Wherever it may hide
We have the power to change
To press on
To stand up
To fight, fight, fight

Resist, Stand Up, Fight Back
This is our moment now
