Finally The Tables Are Starting To Turn

What is happening on our little planet is unprecedented in human history. Hundreds of millions of people rising up to take back what is theirs, despite desperate measures taken to maintain the status quo.

It is our Global Spring, and we will clean out the greed, corruption, and other turds that have gathered in our societal septic tank.

Today Linda and I are singing hopeful protest songs in our living room, and sending them out to the world. Our favourite today? Revolution by Tracy Chapman. It is an outstandingly optimistic piece of protest and performance.

Revolution - Tracy Chapman

Don't you know
They're talkin' bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what's theirs

Don't you know
You better run, run, run
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run

Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' bout a revolution
