In memory of Kimberly Rogers , killed because of Mike Harris' criminalization of people receiving social assistance and of the poor in general..
Teacher, teacher
You've gotta tell me what's going on
Why are rights only equal to those who can afford them
My faith in this system is gone..

Teacher, teacher
The truth is oh, so clear,
They say get off of your ass, but when you try to reach out
They only want you to disappear..

Access denied, I take a step forward
Access denied, they just push me back
It's an endless downward spiral
I feel so helpless when I'm under attack.

Teacher, teacher
What was I supposed to do
I thought that making something better of myself was a virtue..

I'm not a criminal
The system gave me no other choice
None of this would ever have happened
If they'd only listened when I raised my voice.

Access denied, I take a step forward
Access denied, they just push me back
It's an endless downward spiral
I feel so angry when I'm under attack..

Teacher, teacher
She was only trying to survive
When there's so much wealth and so many struggling to get by
You've got to tell me, who are the ones committing the crime..

Access denied – I take a step forward
Access denied, I won't let them push me back
Time to end this downward spiral
Nothing's gonna change until we stop their under attack..

Time to end this downward spiral
Nothing's gonna change until we stop their under attack..
