Why do you ask me to lie in the path of your ignorance?
When will enough be enough for the violence to end?
Is this official your stance is that money is more important than living with wisdom?
More important than the lives of the children?
More important than the wind in the trees?
Please please tell me it's just a dream,
Our hearts aren't run by the machine.
Turn off the news,
Be with the human,
The gravity rules,
Are deeper than culture considers.
Take to the streets,
Put up resistance,
Take to the woods,
Build up your homesteads and cabins.
No! We won't go,
No! I don't care who they put in to office,
The address was already sold,
A mirage of the emperor's cloak.
They tell us to give up to power but we already know,
That in every moment we can choose this life,
And practice compassion,
'Cause love will get us through the fight.
