Burning the Midnight Oil


Written By Tim Scott Poma

Our cause is like a fright train
It starts off slow then gains speed
The clip clap of the wheels hitting the tracks
Whispers to me that there’s no looking back
So ahead full speed we all sing
In hopes to derail this fucking machine
To give true hope to the future offspring
As we all sing, as we all sing

Burning the midnight oil
We all sing together
The burning in our heart
Is what keeps us together

We will keep this blaze a burning bright
Cause our cause of fight is for the light

Down the tracks
Were moving too fast
Now there’s no turning back
Straight ahead we forage our path
In the darkness of the night
The moon sits at our right
Whispering to me its worth the fight
To elevate the darkness to the light

Burning the midnight oil
We all sing together
The burning in our heart
Is what keeps us together

We will keep this blaze a burning bright
Cause our cause of fight is for the light

Everyone signing in the caboose
Brings a chill to my spine
For in my heart I know, I know
That we fight for what is right
Truth, justice and equality
Not to be confused with authority
For in our hearts there is no lies
Just a wall built by our minds

Burning the midnight oil
We all sing together
The Burning in our heart
Is what keeps us together

We will keep this blaze a burning bright
Cause our cause of fight is for the light
