about

This song was written before the Occupy movement took hold, so while it could easily be an anthem for the protestors, it was not written to be. I have problems associating with movements (every movement will have flaws), but as can be heard, I definitely share some sentiments.

lyrics

We want the sound that pricks your ears. We want the words that burn our tongues. We want to feel something. We want to be what we can become. We’re taking streets, the world wide ‐ making freedom more than a war‐faring tag line. We want nations in which power ain’t defined by the richest one percent tolerating a picket line. We’re pulling weight long after punching a clock to end the day. We don’t trust the politician. It takes too much money to get to where he stands. All that money from the corporations, loving their bottom lines before their common man. But, it’s not about us versus them. It’s about us. It’s about the working man. It’s not exclusive when the numbers rest in your hands. Eighty percent in decline for the richest men.
