Another day sets on this mighty place
The bright strong man has kept his pace

And what have we done to create change
The good ole boys still own the range

Plenty are working yet things get worse
It feels like we struggle against a curse

200k down and the fire’s not stopping
Our culture, community, souls are toppling

Our city is quick to proclaim itself a hill
But that earth below our feet is a landfill

Still it’s our home, hope and pride all day
Look around you, do something or get out of our way

Another day’s dawning on this mighty place
Wake up, get dressed and join the race

chicago was written because day after day we turn our backs to claim deniability as our "hyper-progressive" city fails to embody the ideals that so many of us preach
