    Just as relevant today as it was back then. What goes around comes around nothing new under the sun.

    Wake Up
    Motopony

    Dreamers are believers
    That's how you buy into a dream
    But how much more do you need to see
    Before you can believe?
    It's time to wake up from this dream
    What if I was never rejected?
    What if you all just knew the right time to leave?
    My judgment was never requested
    But what if you gave me exactly what I need?
    What if I altered my perspective?
    What if I discovered what I never thought to see?
    What if I'm still just asleep?
    Wake up, wake up, you dreamer
    Wake up and see the day
    You thought it was a nightmare
    But life has a mysterious way
    What if these drugs aren't the problem?
    What if my freedom's hiding just outside my reach?
    What if I never hit bottom?
    How far can I go fallin' 'fore I realize fallin's free?
    What if we've all got a Satan
    Hiding deep within our bellies, where he knows we cannot see?
    What if my dollar bill is me?
    Wake up, wake up, you dreamers
    This dream has gone astray
    A generation slumbers
    Through modern life's decay
    Wake up, wake up, you dreamers
    Wake up and discern the signs
    You thought it was a textbook
    But life is a decadent display
    Do you remember, kids?
    Dreamers are believers
    That's how you buy into a dream
    But how much more do you need to see
    Before you can believe?
    It's time to wake up from this dream

    I was gonna post this song myself Bill, and what a powerful message it contains.

    During lockdown, when I was doing food courier work, I was listening to Uprising constantly, and it filled me which such strength and courage to face whatever challenges were imminent, and a feeling of 'Yes! We can do this!'.

    It was also played on a portable PA, whilst about 40 of us walked through the city centre to join up with an anti lockdown rally. Was a really surreal experience, and we got a lot of cheers and beeping of horns in support.

    "The paranoia is in bloom
    The P.R. transmissions will resume
    They'll try to push drugs, keep us all dumbed down
    And hope that we will never see the truth around, so come on
    Another promise, another scene, another
    Packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed with all the
    Green belts wrapped around our minds and endless
    Red tape to keep the truth confined, so come on
    They will not force us
    And they will stop degrading us
    And they will not control us
    We will be victorious, so come on
    Interchanging mind control
    Come let the revolution take its toll
    If you could flick a switch and open your third eye
    You'd see that we should never be afraid to die
    So come on
    Rise up and take the power back
    It's time the fat cats had a heart attack
    You know that their time is coming to an end
    We have to unify and watch our flag ascend
    So come on
    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious, so come on
    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious, so come on
    Hey, hey, hey, hey".

    So close, no matter how far
    Couldn't be much more from the heart
    Forever trusting who we are
    And nothing else matters

    I never opened myself this way
    Life is ours, we live it our way
    All these words I don't just say
    And nothing else matters

    Yeah, trust I seek and I find in you
    Every day for us something new
    Open mind for a different view
    And nothing else matters

    Never cared for what they do
    Never cared for what they know
    And I know

    Has to be.........



    Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today... Aha-ah...

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion, too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace... You...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world... You...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    ""Hymn Of The Big Wheel"

    [Horace Andy]

    The big wheel keeps on turning
    On a simple line day by day
    The earth spins on its axis
    One man struggle while another relaxes

    There's a hole in my soul like a cavity
    Seems like the world is out to gather just by gravity
    The wheel keeps turning the sky's rearranging
    Look my son the weather is changing

    I'd like to feel that you could be free
    Look up at the blue skies beneath a new tree
    Sometime again
    You'll turn green and the sea turns red
    My son I said the power of axis over my head
    The big wheel keeps on turning
    On a simple line day by day
    The earth spins on its axis
    One man struggle while another relaxes

    We sang about the sun and danced among the trees
    And we listened to the whisper of the city on the breeze
    Will you cry in the most in a lead-free zone
    Down within the shadows where the factories drone
    On the surface of the wheel they build another town
    And so the green come tumbling down
    Yes close your eyes and hold me tight
    And i'll show you sunset sometime again

    The big wheel keeps on turning
    On a simple line day by day
    The earth spins on its axis
    One man struggle while another relaxes
    As a child's silent prayer my hope hides in disguise
    While satellites and cameras watch from the skies
    An acid drop of rain recycled from the sea
    It washed away my shadow burnt a hole in me
    And all the king's men cannot put it back again
    But the ghetto sun will nurture life
    And mend my soul sometime again

    The big wheel keeps on turning
    On a simple line day by day
    The earth spins on its axis
    One man struggle while another relaxes
    [x2]"

    The Sea
    HAEVN
    Sunrays touch the coastline
    On the cutter shows the dust
    Long nights are gone with the river
    The water has been waiting long enough
    We float on the river of time
    Hold steady, hold steady
    The sea comes, calls the summer
    Forced out the cold
    Don't follow the change of the tides
    Hold steady, hold steady
    Storm for hours and rainy days
    And all our lives we're told
    The stream will take us home
    Sunrays touch the coastline
    Warm our feet, show the glare
    We walk through the sand in the warm night
    The water will take the weight from us
    And all our lives we're told
    The stream will take us home
    And all our lives we're told
    The stream will take us home
    We sell our lives to the sea
    The sky lights up from the beach
    When you realize where you come from, you naturally become tolerant, disinterested, amused, kindhearted as a grandparent, dignified as a king. -- I Ching

    Poignant.



    Let It Be

    Malvina Reynolds

    When you walk in the forest, let it be
    There's a flower in the wood, let it be
    There's a flower in the wood, and it's innocent and good
    By the stone where it stands, let it be

    Let it be, let it be
    It's so lovely where it is, let it be

    Tho you want it for your own
    If you take it from its place
    It will not be what it was when you loved it
    Where it stood in the wood

    Let it be, let it be
    It's so lovely where it is, let it be

    It's a thoughtful child
    Innocent and wild
    In the wood by the stone, let it be

    Let her be, let her be
    When you walk in the forest, let her be

    You think that you love her
    And you want to discover
    How she's made, so you take her apart
    And break her heart

    Vicarious

    Eye on the TV
    'Cause tragedy thrills me
    Whatever flavor it happens to be like
    Killed by the husband
    Drowned by the ocean
    Shot by his own son
    She used a poison
    In his tea
    And kissed him goodbye
    That's my kind of story
    It's no fun until someone dies
    Don't look at me like
    I am a monster
    Frown out your one face
    But with the other
    Stare like a junkie
    Into the TV
    Stare like a zombie
    While the mother
    Holds her child
    Watches him die
    Hands to the sky crying
    "Why, oh why?"
