For The Ride: A quick home-desk recording of Rita Hosking's latest, simple response to being told to just "sit back for the ride." Unmastered, turn it up. Throw a fit.



A friend has said to me, oh
she said why not just let it be? oh
but not till we learn all sides
and bigotry has died,
oh will I sit back for the ride

They say just give them a chance, oh
they'll show us who wears the pants, oh
but not till love beats hate,
and the women run this place,
oh will I sit back for the ride

People gonna rise up, singing
they're gonna tear down those walls
and you grab me there, well,
I'll kick you in the balls

They ask why can't you see, oh
well I studied my history, oh
and not till I meet my end,
till I take my last breath
oh will I sit back for the ride
