the golden calf
"the golden calf" (we are the 99) -Dylan Rooke from DylanRooke on Vimeo.
i am so inspired and stand in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street/ Occupy Together, and my local movement of Occupy Pittsburgh. this is the first version of this song. i recorded it on my laptop as soon as a felt it had some cohesion. it's unpolished and uncut for now. give me some feedback, love it/ hate it? its all good.
"The years have been too long, but the days feel short now
There’s a fire burning in our hearts and in our souls
There’s something new on the horizon, inviting us in
Our voices together, diverse yet one. liberating
We don’t want a handout, we want a foot in
We ain’t worshipin’ the golden calf a wall street anymore/ no more
I haven’t cast a ballot, yet I try to vote everyday
With every breath I breathe, and the words I choose to say
We’re here to occupy our streets and towns
Till we reconcile democracy, and tear the idols down
We’ll overthrow the golden calf
Of Wall street, of the elite
We want no more, of all deceit/ of all the lies
the choking of our democracy/ no democracy
we are the ninety nine!"
