"Excuse Me, Mr Emperor" reflects the current turbulent times we live in and echoes the protest's made by the people due to the controversial political issues stirred up by the current U.S. President .


You tell me to go back home
got news for you,
This is where I belong.
You tell me not to speak up
Little do you know
I cause more peace then your own.

Excuse me, Mr. Emperor
Got something to say
you've got it all wrong.
Excuse me, Mr. Emperor
Got something to say
The dream is for everyone.

Keep Marching
We're not standing alone

Your power will not divide us,
we were meant to rise
United as one
Excuse me, Mr. Emperor
We need more colors and shapes
then what you realize

Keep Marching
We're not standing alone

Keep Marching
We're not fighting alone

Keep Marching
