Feel the Power

(See below for notes on the music.)

 

The king’s men
Have betrayed us
Tricked us out of
Our homes

No one else
Gonna save us
We must stand up
On our own

 

Divided
We’ve been conquered
For too long
We’ve played their game

United
We’d be invincible
So rise up
And shake off our chains

 

We’ve been fooled
By the banker
The sheriff
And the priest

We’ve been ruled
By the con man
The scoundrel
And the thief

 

Divided
We’ve been conquered
For too long
We’ve played their game

United
We’d be invincible
So rise up
And shake off our chains

 

Feel
The power
Streaming out
Through our souls [Note: if you’re an atheist, think of it as our source of courage, or just change the last word to “soles”]

Now is
The hour
Come together
And let’s roll

 

Here we are
In the meadow
It is time to
Decide

From afar
The army’s nearing
Are we slaves or
Will we fight?

 

Divided
We’ve been conquered
For too long
We’ve played their game

United
We’d be invincible
So rise up
And shake off our chains

 

Feel
The power
Streaming out
Through our souls

Now is
The hour
Come together
And let’s roll

Notes on the music: The drums are similar to U2’s “Bloody Sunday“, the guitar similar to U2 in some parts and the main riff from Little Steven’s “Freedom” in other parts, and there are elements of Simple Minds’ “Sanctify Yourself” or “Don’t You Forget About Me” and – I know, I know – Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.

Note: If a professional recording studio donates time, we can record this properly. Please send us an email if you can offer recording and engineering time.

    I especially like these stanzas:
    We’ve been fooled
    By the banker
    The sheriff
    And the priest

    We’ve been ruled
    By the con man
    The scoundrel
    And the thief

    Very well done.

    Call out the instigators
    Because there’s something in the air
    We’ve got to get together sooner or later
    Because the revolution’s here, and you know it’s right
    And you know that it’s right

    We have got to get it together
    We have got to get it together now

    Lock up the streets and houses
    Because there’s something in the air
    We’ve got to get together sooner or later
    Because the revolution’s here, and you know it’s right
    And you know that it’s right

    We have got to get it together
    We have got to get it together now

    Hand out the arms and ammo
    We’re going to blast our way through here
    We’ve got to get together sooner or later
    Because the revolution’s here, and you know it’s right
    And you know that it’s right

    – Thunderclap Newman

    I hope a valid cause doesn’t get hijacked by special interest groups, like unions.

    Take this invitation
    Bishop’s Queen to Pawn
    All of us were taken
    All that was, is gone
    Of this information
    Shames us, one and all
    Where’s my compensation
    Watching others fall
    Welcome to the fall

    Everything is useless
    Nothing works at all
    Nothing ever matters
    Welcome to the fall

    A theme song also worth chanting and sharing: http://redtailhawk.bandcamp.com/track/bilderberg

    Lyrics:

    Bilderberg and Babylon are one
    Ruling economics by the gun
    Bilderberg and Babylon are one
    Ruling economics by the gun
    Bilderberg and Babylon are one
    Ruling economics by the gun
    Bilderberg and Babylon are one
    Ruling economics by the gun
    Ruling economics by the gun

    Were you present in 1954
    When they started planning third World War
    My blood runs through red white and blue
    A BLOODLESS revolution must ensue

    Bilderberg and Babylon are one
    Ruling economics by the gun
    Bilderberg and Babylon are one
    Ruling economics by the gun
    Ruling economics by the gun

    Clandestine by nature
    Destined for failure
    With scarcity comes need
    With secrecy comes greed

    Bilderberg and Babylon are one
    Ruling economics by the gun
    Bilderberg and Babylon are one
    Ruling economics by the gun
    Ruling economics by the gun

    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun
    By the gun…

    Here’s my OWS tune “Cut the Crap”
    http://soundcloud.com/gregdiablo/cut-the-crap-g-diablo

    When lobbyists legislate, and make YOU pay the freight… CUT THE CRAP!
    When Wall Street calls the shots, ties Main Street up in knots…. CUT THE CRAP!
    When media mergers wage, an assault upon our truth brigade…. CUT THE CRAP!

    It’s democracy’s demise, unless you realize
    That corporate greed and calumny are going to rob you of your liberty!

    CHORUS: We’re the third millennium generation,
    Diverse, pissed off, and on the rise,
    It’s a social justice revolution,
    We denounce your corporate lies!
    We shoot from the hip right between your eyes CUT THE CRAP!

    When our leadership turns to rust, from selling out the public trust, CUT THE CRAP!
    With capitalism dead, and our country deep in debt, CUT THE CRAP!
    It’s time for the people to MOVE, history’s lessons provide the proof CUT THE CRAP!
    It’s democracy’s demise, unless you realize,
    That we’re the new Minutemen, our weapon? Organized action!
