​When The People Speak

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Marching Mystery (1994).

For too long we've heard them laughing at our dreams
Ridicule our reasons and blind ignoring what it means
For too long we have believed the walls they made
But now we see a shining light and we are not afraid

But when the people speak, it's not with corporate lies
It's not with indecision, no, or academic bows and ties
When the people speak, it thunders through these hills
It's not a thing that's mild and meek when the people speak

And there's a fear that's made to keep us in our place
Pacify our anger and justify our fool disgrace
There's a fear made to destroy and to degrade
But now we see a shining light and we are not afraid

But when the people speak, it's not with corporate lies
It's not with indecision, no, or academic bows and ties
When the people speak, it thunders through these hills
It's not a thing that's mild and meek when the people speak
