    I always loved this one:


    "Life Is A Long Song"

    When you're falling awake and you take stock of the new day,
    and you hear your voice croak as you choke on what you need to say,
    well, don't you fret, don't you fear,
    I will give you good cheer.

    Life's a long song.
    Life's a long song.
    Life's a long song.

    If you wait then your plate I will fill.

    As the verses unfold and your soul suffers the long day,
    and the twelve o'clock gloom spins the room,
    you struggle on your way.
    Well, don't you sigh, don't you cry,
    lick the dust from your eye.

    Life's a long song.
    Life's a long song.
    Life's a long song.

    We will meet in the sweet light of dawn.

    As the Baker Street train spills your pain all over your new dress,
    and the symphony sounds underground put you under duress,
    well don't you squeal as the heel grinds you under the wheel.

    Life's a long song.
    Life's a long song.
    Life's a long song.

    But the tune ends too soon for us all.



    From the Heart,
    Kristin

    I think Joan Baez's 'We shall overcome' comes to mind, only needs to be sang in a present tense

    Mahalia Jackson---We Shall Overcome

    We shall overcome, we shall overcome,
    We shall overcome someday;
    Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
    We shall overcome someday.

    The Lord will see us through, The Lord will see us through,
    The Lord will see us through someday;
    Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
    We shall overcome someday.

    We're on to victory, We're on to victory,
    We're on to victory someday;
    Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
    We're on to victory someday.

    We'll walk hand in hand, we'll walk hand in hand,
    We'll walk hand in hand someday;
    Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
    We'll walk hand in hand someday.

    We are not afraid, we are not afraid,
    We are not afraid today;
    Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
    We are not afraid today
    .

    The truth shall set us free , the truth shall set us free,
    The truth shall set us free someday;
    Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
    The truth shall set us free someday.

    We shall live in peace, we shall live in peace,
    We shall live in peace someday;
    Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
    We shall live in peace someday




    And another more modern option, The video is most recommended : )




    June is on the run for so long
    Pushed and pulled then shunned
    It was so wrong
    These fours walls crashing in won't stop me now
    Cause I'm alive, I'm out tonight, all night

    Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
    Every day we've got to hold on
    'Cause if we hold on we could find some new energy

    Streets with flags unfurled like treasure
    Thank me for my words, it's a pleasure
    Just don't ask me to stay 'cause I'll be gone
    But it's alright I'm OK - always

    Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
    Every day we've got to hold on
    'Cause if we hold on we could find some new energy

    One plus one is one - together
    One plus one is one - forever
    One plus one is one - together
    One plus one is one - forever

    Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
    Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
    Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
    Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
    Every day we've got to hold on
    'Cause if we hold on we could find some new energy

    What about this one?



    Words are flowing out like
    Endless rain into a paper cup
    They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe.
    Pools of sorrow, waves of joy
    Are drifting through my opened mind
    Possessing and caressing me.

    Jai Guru Deva. Om
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world

    Images of broken light, which
    Dance before me like a million eyes,
    They call me on and on across the universe.
    Thoughts meander like a
    Restless wind inside a letter box
    They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe.

    Jai Guru Deva. Om
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world

    Sounds of laughter, shades of life
    Are ringing through my opened ears
    Inciting and inviting me.
    Limitless undying love, which
    Shines around me like a million suns,
    It calls me on and on across the universe

    Jai Guru Deva.
    Jai Guru Deva.
    Jai Guru Deva.
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world

    or maybe this one ?



    ...Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
    Can't we give ourselves one more chance
    Why can't we give love that one more chance
    Why can't we give love give love give love give love
    give love give love give love give love give love
    'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
    And love dares you to care for
    The people on the edge of the Night
    And love dares you to change our way of
    Caring about ourselves
    This is our last dance
    This is our last dance
    This is ourselves
    Under pressure
    Under pressure
    Pressure

    I always thought "Escape From The Prison Planet" is the underground insider anthem.


    Then Against My Better Judgment I Went Walking Out That Door.
    I Smiled At One Person Then I Nodded To Three More.
    One Man Asked Me For A Dollar, I Asked Him, "What's It For?"
    He Said, "I Have Seen Them." I Said, "O.K., It's Yours."
    And As Featured On The MTV, The Local High School Lets Out,
    And The Town Becomes Anarchy.
    Parties Are Crashed, Skid Marks Are Measured.
    The Story's In The Paper, You May Read It At Your Leisure.

    Get Out.
    Eject.
    Escape From The Prison Planet.
    Get Out.
    Eject.
    Escape From The Prison Planet.

    And To The Tune Of A Billion Dollars, I Supplied To The D.O.E.
    Some Tasty Little Nuggets Of Alien Technology.
    And As One Might Expect, I've Been Harassed For Years.
    The Men In Black Have Been Bending My Ear.
    As A Matter Of Fact, They Were Just Here Today,
    But I Escaped Them Through A Secret Passageway.
    Once I Lived There For One Thousand Days.

    Get Out.
    Eject.
    Escape From The Prison Planet.
    Get Out.
    Eject.
    Escape From The Prison Planet.

    I Have Plans For The Future, Guess They're Futuristic Plans.
    Move Out West And Buy Some Desert Lands.
    Maybe Up North, Just Past Alaska.
    You Know Nothing Of This If They Ask You.
    Red Rover, Red Rover, Bob Lazar's Coming Over.
    So Honey Clear The Airstrip And Light Up That Stove.
    By Jove, I Think It's Started. Oh Yeah,
    Escape From The Prison Planet.

    Billion People Harvest On Mars.
    Rebuild The Remnants Of The Obelisk,
    One Mile From The Pyramid.
    Escape From The Planet Of The Apes.
    Go Forth, Ad Infinitum.
    Return The Relics To The Elephant.
    And Atlantis Rises.

    Get Out.
    Eject.
    Escape From The Prison Planet.
    Ejector Seat Ignite.

    Billion People Harvest On Mars.
    Rebuild The Remnants Of The Obelisk,
    One Mile From The Pyramid.
    Escape From The Planet Of The Apes.

    We're sailing in a strange boat
    heading for a strange shore
    We're sailing in a strange boat
    heading for a strange shore
    Carrying the strangest cargo
    that was ever hauled aboard.

    We're sailing on a strange sea
    blown by a strange wind
    We're sailing on a strange sea
    blown by a strange wind
    Carrying the strangest crew
    that ever sinned.

    We're riding in a strange car
    We're following a strange star
    We're climbing on the strangest ladder
    that was ever there to climb.

    We're living in a strange time
    working for a strange goal
    We're living in a strange time
    working for a strange goal
    We're turning flesh and body into soul.

    Bills choice is the one to go with, or at least the best one so far. Really heartfelt and representative of Avalon, it offer the spirit of solidarity for everyone who's committed to the cause.

    Kristen turned back a few pages of my book. This is another that was on that page.
    I didn't hear it quite as clearly then as I do now.

    abbreviated, but nonetheless....you're a rabbit on the run......

    Meanwhile back in the year One…..When you belonged to know one.
    You didn’t stand a chance son……if your pants were undone.
    ‘Cause you were bred for humanity…and sold to society.
    One day you’ll WAKE UP...in the present day.

    A million generations removed from expectations of being who you really want to be.


    So as you push off from the shore, won’t you turn your head once more
    And make your piece with everyone.
    For those who choose to stay, will live just one more day
    To do the things they should have done.

    And as you cross the wilderness, spinning in your emptiness
    You feel you have to pray.
    Looking for a sign that the Universal Mind has written you into the Passion Play.

    Skating away, skating away,
    Skating away on the thin ice of the New Day.

    Well, do you ever get the feeling that the story's too damn real and in the present tense?
    Or that everybody's on the stage, and it seems like you're the only person
    Sitting in the audience?

    Skating away, skating away,
    Skating away on the thin ice of the New Day.
