Songwriters in the 20th century like George M. Cohan and Irving Berlin expressed in their music an abiding appreciation for America's many freedoms. Fast forward to today: after watching how the events of January 6th unfolded - and now, the Congressional hearings of the January 6th Committee - it's been an honor to channel my "inner Cohan & Berlin" at the piano to write Justice Day. I hope you'll sing along...

Lyrics

Justice Day
by Michael Lyon

Are you feeling blue
Don’t know what to do
Wondering why you lost your way

How to go from here
To where the coast is clear
Intriguing case of foul play

Thought you’d never ask
Who to take to task
Forever is a long long wait

Glimmer of a dim horizon
Though it may seem far away
Sooner than you think the time comes

Justice Day


Flipping on the news
Want to sing the blues
Can you believe the world today

Hard to sympathize
With never-ending lies
Creating utter disarray

Rightfully you ask
Who’s up to meet the task
While others turn and run away

Would you concede it bears reminding
Not to look the other way
Sooner than you think the time comes

Justice Day


Without appearing rude
Or in an angry mood
Enough of being led astray

All that’s on the line
The future - yours and mine
Is nothing to be thrown away

Seems only fair to ask
That rules be hard and fast
You break ‘em - there’s a price to pay

Trust in what we must rely on
Though it may seem far away
Be nice to celebrate and why not
Proclaim a special holiday

Sooner than you think the time comes
Truth is marching on and then some
Sooner than you think the time comes

Justice Day
