Track Name: Resistance Is Vital
They hear all that you hear and read what you write
Have access to your mail and know your favorite site
While you fund both their wars and the other side
Now it's all exposed and you're the one they fight

This is for Bradley, the pressure is on
This is for Julian, your freedom is gone
This is for Edward, the Empire's lost son
And Dr. Kelly, you were too late to run

Ze noemden je een gek, een crimineel
Want de waarheid werd Defensie teveel
Onthulde hoe mijn privacy wordt gekraakt
En hoe verzet door geweld wordt verdacht gemaakt

Dit is voor Rop, je hebt ons voorbereid
Dit is voor Fred, gestraft voor de waarheid
Dit is voor Louis, vermoord in de strijd
Complottheorie ingehaald door de realiteit

Verzet is vitaal alleen als jij dat wilt
No more denial, resistance is vital
This is for us, because we need to act
Dit is voor ons, want verandering komt niet vanzelf
Komt niet vanzelf
Komt niet vanzelf
Track Name: Summer Jammed
It's been several years since I've felt this way
Everything is going south, but I feel okay
yes I'm doing great
And I am not alone
Beauty's all around in the hearts of those
standing up for justice and change
and try to end the pain

So celebrate this moment together
Occupy the squares
Spring returns every year
Let's get the system summer jammed

You are not alone
Desperation shows in
the violence of the 1%
As our movement grows
and obviously they know

So occupy the streets
Occupy the squares
and the beaches too
Enjoy the sunshine
let your love flow
and your light
The sunshine
don't let them take it away from you

Let's reclaim all parties
our dance has begun
and revolution started
time has come now to revolt
tonight, the perfect moment
tonight

No better time than now
Time has come to evolve
let's get started tonight
Track Name: The Offer (Part 1)
I had no home, no hope, I had no job, no job, all I had left were my beliefs, but those would not get me anything to eat
Then came the offer, I could not refuse, the offer, what was I supposed to do, I had nothing to lose, nothing to lose
Track Name: Arrived
Arrived

this is not who I am
I'm in a place I shouldn't be
a dire warning from inside my body told me
how this could tear my soul apart
tear my soul apart

somehow
somehow it tries to turn into someone new
someone I could never be

I've always been told
to take care of my future
Now I've arrived, at that point in time

somehow
somehow I have changed into someone new
someone I could never be

I've been trying my best
to take care of my future
But this future isn't mine

so today
I am going to say goodbye
to the places I've seen
where I shouldn't have been
So today I am going to say goodbye
to the darkness In me
I won't become someone new
only set myself free
learn to love the real me
Track Name: I'm Not An American
Well I'm an inhabitant
of the world outside yours
but it really does matter to me
who'll be the one you'll vote for

will you choose profit or peace
will you choose people or war
will you allow the next government
to destroy the planet we're fighting for

I'm not an American
but if I were
I'd surely vote for Jill

will you choose profit or peace
will you choose people or war
will you allow the next president
to destroy the planet we're fighting for
will you choose people or war

I'm no interventionist
unlike your government (and mine)
so I won't tell you who to vote for
what to believe or whose profits you should fight and die for

will you choose profit or peace
will you choose people or war
will you allow the next president
destroy the planet we're fighting for
will you choose people or war

I'm not an American
but if I were
I'd surely vote for Jill
Track Name: I Am Here
I Am Here

and you don't need to cry
have no fear it's
nothing but a lie
time is near for us
to learn and fly
we can change the future
if we try
you are why the world can't die
your light shines in our eyes

you are not here
but I sense you're in my heart
separate lives can’t ever keep us apart
you’re my blood as precious as can be
and when you’re hurt I sense the pain in me

You are why
I’ll always try
your light shines
through my eyes

I am here though
I’m not in the streets
just like you I’ve got
people I love to meet
this is what the movement is about
be as one and restore humanity

you are why we stand up and shine
and open our eyes
as we occupy

There’s a 1000 reasons I know
to get into the streets and strike a blow
to banksters and politicians they show
they’re puppets on a string
time for them to go
I don’t know how the world will be
for the generation coming after me
I don’t care if the cops hunt me
if that’s wat it takes than so it be
Kid, one day you’ll realize how
all the occupiers on the squares and me
we took the heat out of love for you
we did what we did and we do what we do
Don’t believe the lies on your tv
or the DOD-approved movie
Stay close to your heart
and stick to Love
to make sure
you’ll BE FREE
Track Name: Mermaid
Once I met a mermaid
born out of the sea

the water is her home
but she came to me

she teaches me how to swim
as I almost drowned in life
she saved the heart of me
I'll love her endlessly

the water is her home
but she came to me
