    I just thought all these Occupy Wall St./Movement songs & music deserve they're own thread.
    Mods & if others disagree go ahead & merge, whatever.
    I really believe we're experiencing an amazing time in history that will eventually change our world if we like it or not. I am excited about it, as for the first time in years my spirit is filled with hope for the future of my young adult children and the future of my grand-children's children & their children. (BTW my Native American ancestors thought Seven Generations ahead & if they didn't there would have been the complete genocide of an entire race).

    I recently read tweets from Anon's who are involved in the Occupy Movement that just learned about what happened @ Kent State.
    There are so many tunes that remind me of the Vietnam protests of the late 60's & early 70's and from...
    Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's
    "Four Dead in Ohio"



    to

    The Who's
    "Won't Get Fooled Again"



    TOO BAD...WE GOT FOOLED AGAIN!

    The End of the World
    Lyrics:

    [Hook]
    This world ends, this world ends
    This world ends, this world ends
    Now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now

    [Verse 1]
    Uh, she love her people so much
    Came to my show just to throw her flag up and
    Pray to God that I saw her
    One day wonder if she saw my scarf for palestine all on it
    Never struggle, Valentine all on it
    Put my heart to it
    Like Noah's Ark I'm too into it
    Like justice I'm just too influenced not to do this to it
    This one dedicated to the soldiers
    Throw up peace signs in their face and throw up peace signs in the face of bulldozers
    Never bow down or wrap their body in explosives
    As long as your alive, fight your whole lifetime
    The Horn of Africa needs you
    Callin' out to all you friends of the people
    Be the change that you wanna see
    Tell 'em no change just ain't what it gonna be

    [Hook]

    [Verse 2]
    Yeah, the people, united, will never be defeated
    And all my people's smite just forever be repeated
    These streets our streets, it'll never be deleted
    No matter how many cops that you send to try and beat it
    This is revolution in the making
    A ragtag movement set to takeover the nation
    Now isn't that fun
    You just wanna make the world better, isn't that young?
    Well, blessings to the youth then
    And don't stop, until they let the truth in
    Once there, never let it leave
    And protect it, they'll catch it and never set it free
    And every set is free
    Blood sweat and tears, no place I'd rather be
    So, let's occupy Wall Street, all day, all week

    [Hook]

    [Verse 3]
    So again, I fight evil
    This what I gotta do to live my life peaceful?
    So be it, outspoken and low key it
    My heart big, limousine no ?
    And you can hear it loud every time God be it
    Love always shines every time I see it
    Exactly what they handed is exactly what I needed
    And exactly where I started is exactly where I be at
    Cause I ain't never ever ever change
    I say that because I ain't never felt better mane
    Beautiful lasers as fans, do me a favor, this time I'll repay ya
    Friend of the peeps, free Chill, Esco at Peace
    Holla at me if you see me in the streets
    A pitch costs a dollar, First and Fifteenth

    [Hook]

    Yes, welcome to the idea of selective editing Fox-style and skinny 80's tunes that were written for a conceptual Broadway play!?

    Wow, you suck at this. Let me show you how its really done.

    Reach for a new horizon
    Setting sights on a circuit scream
    Hail the new arrival on
    Static signs from a distant wanderer
    Fill the air nights are never seen
    Face the electric time shock now
    No its not a dream anymore

    I will light the way for us to find
    Order of a new kind
    Join us on the stay the road is mine
    Poets line in a rhyme of silence
    Gathered from the winter air
    Warms the childrens eyes they see
    The time is near for the signs

    I can hear the chimes
    Ringing for you for me
    I can see your eyes
    Your hands joining with me
    I can feel its time
    Come together hold the light
    Keep the flame we cant let this world remain
    The same

    I can hear the chimes
    Ringing for you for me
    I can see your eyes
    Your hands joining with me
    I can feel its time
    Its time for the world to hear
    Neue regel is here

    I win at picking appropriate songs. You lose.
