Don’t Lie To Me | a protest song

“I find myself quite sad these days. They say that “One picture is worth a thousand words,” so I chose 138 of them for my “Don’t Lie To Me” video! I’m grateful that music allows me to express my feelings. In my own four-minute way, I’m trying to fight against the disintegration of democracy – where truth becomes “alternative facts” and lying becomes the new norm.” – Barbra Streisand


Don’t Lie to Me
Written & Directed by Barbra Streisand

“Don’t Lie To Me” (Lyrics)
(Barbra Streisand/John Shanks/Jonas Myrin/Jay Landers)

Why can’t you just tell me the truth?
Hard to believe the things you say
Why can’t you feel the tears I cry today?
Cry today…cry today

How do you win if we all lose?
You change the facts to justify
Your lips move but your words get in the way
In the way…in the way

Kings and queens, crooks and thieves
You don’t see the forest for the trees
Head and heart, on our knees
You can’t see what we all see

How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?
All that we built has come undone
How do you sleep when the world is burning?
Everyone answers to someone

Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me
Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me

You can build towers of bronze and gold
You can paint castles in the sky
You can use smoke and mirrors, old clichés,
Not today…not today

Kings and queens, crooks and thieves
You don’t see the forest for the trees
Hand on heart, down on knees
You can’t see what everyone sees

How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?
All that we built has come undone
How do you sleep when the world is burning?
Everyone answers to someone

Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me
Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me

Can’t you see I’m crying?
Can’t you see we’re crying?
Where’s the new horizon?
Where’s the new horizon?

How do you sleep?
How do you sleep?
How do you sleep?

How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?
All that we built has come undone
Enough is enough
How do you sleep when the world is burning?
Everyone answers to someone

Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me
Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me

Can’t you see I’m crying?
Can’t you see we’re crying?
Everyone answers to someone

In Trump’s America, To Kill A Mockingbird is considered Liberal Propaganda. Harper Lee saw a lot of Donald Trump supporters in her day.

SAME HIGH SCHOOL . . .

A Mississippi HS is removing To Kill a Mockingbird because it makes people uncomfortable, yet this is the flag they fly out front daily.

Song Tribute | We Didn’t Start the Fire | Billy Joel

Michael Bennett . Famous Professional Football Player and a member of the Seattle Seahawks

For More on Michael Bennett go to LINK on ‘Expats Post’ for a more extensive post than on ‘the secret keeper’ . it explains in the Statement by Michael Bennett how he recently experienced a horrendous attack of police brutality in Las Vegas NV. at the end of August 2017. His life will tell us what we need to do. Follow the story. #BlackLivesMatter

It’s getting worse . the violence . from the forces of Law & Order . they don’t play nice . rather suppress the masses . then let us protest peacefully . in most cases with protests for equality . it is the police who push too hard and too far . the police are ones who start the fire . the protesters can honestly pull a quote from Billy Joel “We Didn’t Start the Fire . . .” . take a listen . it is the song of the Resistance #Resist . and I intend to protest in my way . as everyone else will do it their way . peace to #BlackLivesMatter . Viva la Resistance . May We All Unite In Peace . if that is possible ever . . . ✌☮ 🤘 – j.kiley
