Probably the strongest empowerment song on the album. This song speaks out against those who take away the freedoms of other people, and what we can all do to push for positive change.


Don’t Have the Right

They don’t have the right
To say what it is you can and cannot do
They don’t have the right
They don’t have it right
To force someone to do what they would not do
They don’t have it right
They don’t the right
To judge a woman for what she’s been made to do
No one has the right

Don’t listen to (no voices of doubt)
You know what to do (don’t let them take away)
All the things you thought (you could you can do)


Wake up, turn the news down
There’s no question what it is we do now
They don’t have their rights

I wanna wake up in a place where everyone’s free
I wanna be the change, the change I want to see

Darkness in your heart (it’s time to let go)
Let your spirit (ready to grow)
We can’t wait no more (it’s time to go)
You know what to do (it’s in your heart now)
Use the things you do (to make a change now)
You create the news (you see each day)


Let the states protect the children
Let the mothers protect the children
Let the men unite protect the women
Let the girls know their power

Women hold the piece (the missing piece now)
Hold them up to see (the light, the light)
Show the children please (what the world can be)
