Excerpt from the script:

HECTOR

No matter the pigment in our flesh

We want equality and respect

Loosen the noose around our neck

So we can push forward

Elevate the next step

At last

Smuggle ideas no

Way of the past

Can’t bring it back

Say it out loud

Vocal outcast

Didn’t think we’d have to argue

whether or not

My people should stop being harassed

You do the math

Didn’t realize being other

was the same as being second-class

being second-class

One bad apple, ruins the lot

Bruised by the sin of bigotry

If nobody grapples, we all rot

Used, by a nation no symmetry

No, I can’t stop till the next crop

Express your views explicitly

This just in, we’re not backing down

Kicking and clawing, you hear that sound?

CHORUS

You hear us now.

You hear that sound

You hear us now.

You hear that sound.

You hear us now.

You hear that sound.

You hear us now.

You hear that sound.
