Austin’s Bright Light Social Hour celebrated Inauguration Day by dropping a searing ode to unity bolstered by the band’s signature expansive rock grooves.

A sample of lyrics:

“If they build it, we’ll tear it down

When they try again, when they try again, we’ll tear it down

If they push us out, we’ll come back in and tear down that wall

Be together again”
