#ActToChange: Working to Fight Bullying and Oppression

Our newest song, “From the Heart,” was just released in a joint project with the White House Initiative on Asian Pacific Islanders to support their #ActToChange movement in addressing bullying and oppression.

The album is now available to stream on Spotify or for purchase on Amazon and Micrsoft (singles are available) and includes special messages from Barack and Michelle Obama, George Takei, Jeremy Lin, as well music from CHOPS, PaperDoll, Run River North, and many other incredible artists.

Our song, From the Heart, is like an open letter to the Trademark Office and reflects our experience of spending almost a decade in the legal system.

You can listen to the song here via Spotify. Below are the lyrics:

FROM THE HEART

Sorry if our note’s too sharp
Sorry if our voice’s too raw
Don’t make the pen a weapon
And censor our intelligence
Until our thoughts mean nothing at all

Sorry if you take offense
You made up rules and played pretend
We know you fear change
It’s something so strange
But nothing’s gonna get in our way

There’s no room
For your backwards feelings
And backyard dealings
We’re never gonna settle
We’re never gonna settle

No, we won’t remain silent
Know it’s our defining moment
We sing from the heart
We sing from the heart
No we won’t be complacent
Know it’s a rock n roll nation
We sing from the heart
We sing from the heart

Sorry if we try too hard
To take some power back for ours
The language of oppression
Will lose to education
Until the words can’t hurt us again

So sorry if you take offense
But silence will not make make amends
The system’s all wrong
And it won’t be long
Before the kids are singing our song

There’s no room
For your backwards feelings
And your backyard dealings
We’re never gonna settle
We’re never gonna settle

No, we won’t remain silent
Know it’s our defining moment
We sing from the heart
We sing from the heart
No we won’t be complacent
know it’s a rock n roll nation
We sing from the heart
We sing from the heart
