The song, written by Natalya Zoe Weinstein and John Cloyd Miller, takes a middle-of-the-road stance towards the violence and division prevalent in America today. It implicates partisans left and right for insisting that everyone line up behind one side or the other, with no options in between.

For us to move forward, we have to find common ground on which to build a path toward a sustainable future.”
