Bruce Springsteen has released a new anti-Trump protest song, and it’s called “That’s What Makes Us Great.”

Springsteen joined with songwriter Joel Grushecky on the track, who wrote the song after Trump took office in January.

Grushecky said:

“I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking. I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ‘What do you think about singing on it?’ He gave it the Bruce treatment.”

Springsteen hits Trump for his reported distaste for reading in one verse, singing “And don’t you brag to me/That you never read a book/I never put my faith/In a con man and his crooks.”

The chorus of the song takes a positive note, as both artists sing “It’s up to me and you/Love can conquer hate/I know this to be true/That’s what makes us great.”

Springsteen is a longtime supporter of Democratic candidates, having backed both former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton during their campaigns.

Here are the full lyrics:

That’s What Makes Us Great

Grushecky:

They come from everywhere

A longing to be free

They come to join us here

From sea to shining sea

Together:

And they all have a dream

As people always will

To be safe and warm

In that shining city on the hill

Grushecky:

Some wanna slam the door

Instead of opening the gate

Aw, let’s turn this thing around

Before it gets too late

Together:

It’s up to me and you

Love can conquer hate

I know this to be true

That’s what makes us great

Springsteen:

Don’t tell me a lie

And sell it as a fact

I’ve been down that road before

And I ain’t goin’ back

And don’t you brag to me

That you never read a book

I never put my faith

In a con man and his crooks

Together:

I won’t follow down that path

And tempt the hands of fate

Aw, let’s turn this thing around

Before it gets too late

It’s up to me and you

Love can conquer hate

I know this to be true

That’s what makes us great

Springsteen:

In the quiet of the night

I lie here wide awake

And I ask myself

Is there a difference I can make?

It’s up to me and you

Love can conquer hate

I know this to be true

That’s what makes us great
