lyrics

[this is a work about perception- there no image on the screen just yet.
it isn't about the perception of small facts, it isn't about the physiology of perception.
it's about the perception of self, it's about the meaning of truth.
the definition of fact.
this is a work about being done to.
this is a work about learning how to think:
what is the same, what is different?
what is outside, what is inside?
like man is chicken, only here we deal with egg;
it is a documentary record,
it's about scrutiny on a mass level.
about what has been and what could be
this is a work about coercion.
coercion can be quick and brutal; that is the worst crime.
coercion can also extend over the whole of life; that is the ordinary, the usual crime
bureaucratic crime can be brutal or merely devastating. we need not make a choice.
evil demands only the systematic substitution of the abstract for the concrete.
it demands only the de-realization of the human status of the people on who you carry out your ideas and plans.]

[some of you have been living freely for decades,
and others of you are still wondering how you can possibly live the lives that you were born to lead.
but no matter how isolated, no matter how afraid,
and no matter how alone you may feel today, know this:
that we see you, we stand with you,
and we will do everything we can to protect you going forward.
and please know that history is on your side.
this country was founded on the promise of equal rights for all,
and it may not be easy, but we will get there together.]
