Anti-Flag Shares “A Dying Plea Vol. 1” ft. De’wayne, Marcia Richards, Jalise Della Gary, and Tom Morello


Veteran political Punk band Anti-Flag has shared a new track, “A Dying Plea”, featuring De’wayne, Marcia Richards, Julise Della Gary and Tom Morello. The political punk band teamed up with Sirius XM Faction for the world premiere of “A Dying Plea Vol. 1” yesterday and have just premiered the bone-chilling music video directed and produced by Keith Ray and INDECLINE. Watch it now!

 

 

On today’s release, the band shares the following message:

The 2020 election has highlighted the heightened divide between so many Americans. It has also clearly defined the unity among the ruling classes, who hand pick and present political candidates who have no intention of challenging an unjust structure of power which protects and enriches the nation’s economic elites.

Their unwillingness to waver on the marginalization, persecution and murder of BIPOC whether by economic isolation, environmental disaster or militarized and racist police forces. Their inability to break from the corporations that buy, sell and trade their policies and platforms allowing them to devour our planet, make us sick and create endless war for the sake of their economies.

 

With the civic duty of voting behind us and while the world waits to see the electoral outcome, we must turn our attention to the next phases of the work we all need to be doing. Working to hold these people accountable, fighting racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and all bigotry. The change we seek doesn’t come from presidents, prime ministers or popes. It has historically and will always come from The People.

Our hope is that A Dying Plea Vol. 1 & 2 serve as a reminder to stay focused on these goals.

Vote. Strike. Boycott. Protest. Win

Young vocalist Jálise Della Gary, the niece of Chris #2, adds a powerful plea. Rounding out the track is a guitar riff from the formidable Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, who dropped a five-song EP Comandantelast week.

Lyrics:

 

We can’t breathe…

 

I know you looking for a victim to kill – I KNOW YOU

I know you looking for a son to steal – I KNOW YOU

You wanna catch me slipping down on my heels

For a moment to boast and shout look at this nigga I killed

But what about my rights?

What about my life?

We ain’t equal to them

If they ain’t kill us

Slamming us down

Saw the tape on CNN

Got a call from my mother

You bet not go outside again

Got a call from my father

Like put a damn gun to they head

BANG

 

With others oppressed no one is free…

 

When just to breathe is a dying plea

Your freedom falls only skin deep

Out of reach like an American Dream

 

The blue lines cross at demand and need

Raze the statues from the hanging tree

Out of reach like an American Dream

 

We can’t breathe…

 

Well I’m unbelievably out of breath

I remember inna school that respect wasn’t there

Imagine what a fool, I’d step where the other girls stepped

I’d forget that I checked and the step wasn’t there

I know underneath another layer lies another liar

Out come the wolves from their wool to deny our rights

Buckle up, watch it take a turn until your luck is up

We got the backup and we’ll say their names until you’re gone

With others oppressed no one is free…

 

When just to breathe is a dying plea

Your freedom falls only skin deep

Out of reach like an American Dream

 

The blue lines cross at demand and need

Raze the statues from the hanging tree

Out of reach like an American Dream

 

How long must we wait

For all of this to change

The fear, the death, the pain…

Will it ever go away

How long must we wait

How long?

 

When just to breathe is a dying plea

Your freedom falls only skin deep

Out of reach like an American Dream

 

We can’t breathe…
