Lyric video: bit.ly/therightmovie

The first verse is based on a story I heard about my grandpa's experiences at school. The rest of the song expands on this, covering body image and Hitler's master plan!


My Grandpa was left-handed but his school-teacher tried
To make him write with the right so his left hand was tied.

What about you, what do you do?
When you meet someone a little different from you?
What do you do, What about you, do you have the right?

I knew a girl who thought that the right shape for her was thin.
As she grew older, she heard what they told her, and she couldn't keep it in.

I read about a man who had a masterplan.
If you weren't white, you had no rights, and so the war began.

When you look at somebody else,
Do you compare them to yourself?
What do you see, are they just like me?
Are they just like you?
What do you do?
Do you have the right?
