Hack Harassment PSA


Hi All,

Wole Idowu, President of TNGL and #HackHarassment Ambassador

I wanted to share our PSA with you all we created for #HackHarassment. In our past events this year we created original music for this campaign with the Music Department of Carnegie Mellon and hip-hop artist Da Great Deity Dah at Carnegie Mellon's studio onsite. Together we created a PSA against online harassment called “Stop The Bullying” It's available on Soundcloud, iTunes, Spotify, TIDAL, Amazon Music and more! Here is the link to it and the remix including voices from students from our hackathon events on our official soundcloud!: https://soundcloud.com/user-415104045/tracks

 The lyric sheet is also available below! Thank you!








Stop The Bullying (Leave The Kids alone)
V1
What’s going on/ society gone wrong
Adults terrorizing/ weak and the young/ In the name of freedom of speech
They seek/ to maim the weak/ to the point kids seek/ to make life brief
We aint monolithic/ great we are different/ Diverse ideas/ democratic systems
We all aint Christians/ or Muslims/ Or Jew/
Or Atheist/ or Buddhist/ Or Hindu/
Or Yoruba/ Or Wiccan/ It shouldn’t matter your prism/ Or How you engage/ the Ever living
Or if believe Him/ Her/Them/ Whatever
Fundamentalist set to attack together
Keyboard Gangsters/ Illiterate wanksters/ Some are just sinister
Nickle and dime pranksters/ got no answers/ pale moonlight dancers
Stop the bullying/ To the Deity you’ll answer
Chorus
You can keep on trying
I guarantee I won’t be scared
Cause freedom of expression
Don't give a right to play with fear
Really you just a bully
Another mean girl (interchange with troll)
Full of fear
Of looking in the mirror and
Realizing why you're here.

Bridge
Just stop it with harassment
Just stop it with the bullying
Just stop it with the hate
The world is a big place
And there's no way you will win


V2
Does your boss know what you’re doing?
Is your life ready for ruin?
You got so much to lose/ but don’t have no clue in
God’s green Earth/ just reciting propaganda
Hating on perspectives/Indecent/ a cancer
Root out the rot/ eggheads with a plot
Some in plain view/Alt Right they spew
And thinking its freedom/ But really it’s a prison
To the mundane/ and minute thinking
We come in all shapes and Textures
Craving various tastes/ and far flung pleasures
Endowed by the ever living
With accents and diction/ Passions and rhythm
Heritage O-ri-gin/ All from 1 origin
Africa and after/ plates separate
We journey different climates
Engaging with primates/ evolve communicate/create
Culture and systems/ dictating living/
Immaculate Conception/ vast solar systems
Chorus
You can keep on trying
I guarantee I won’t be scared
Cause freedom of expression
Don't give a right to play with fear
Really you just a bully
Another mean girl (interchange with troll)
Full of fear
Of looking in the mirror and
Realizing why you're here.

Bridge
Just stop it with harassment
Just stop it with the bullying
Just stop it with the hate
The world is a big place
And there's no way you will win

V3
They say I walk around like I got an S on my Chest
Actually a capital D/ tactical vest
However you want/you can get it
Any way/ we can set it
This is grown man talk/ bullies be pathetic
No merit/ to your position/ screaming causing friction
An addiction/ harassing women and children
This is age of wisdom/ semi-conducting systems
Communication around the globe/ multitudes can listen
Dialogue for building/ journey the solar system
Rovers controlled in Mars/ but you disrupt the rhythm
Hating science and logic/ world beyond your optics
Beyond your hand/ And mundane topics
Discovery is fantastic/ reasoning should be elastic
Stop the bullying/ Before you get your ass kicked
Chorus
You can keep on trying
I guarantee I won’t be scared
Cause freedom of expression
Don't give a right to play with fear
Really you just a bully
Another mean girl (interchange with troll)
Full of fear
Of looking in the mirror and
Realizing why you're here.

Bridge
Just stop it with harassment
Just stop it with the bullying
Just stop it with the hate
The world is a big place
And there's no way you will win
