about

This song is about my hopes and dreams for Humanism in our world. It was inspired by Occupy.

lyrics

We got the daydream history conquered
up with the beat our bearly-eyed saunter
and they were shoutin'
"We are one and a thousand!
Though their lies are the loud ones
We are the human fountain!"

And if ever I could choose another time to be alive. Couldn't- why?
Cause through all the years of our oppression always we've been rising like a tidal drum.
Rebel sons shine on.

Light brightened up and we are the sunrise,
history sets the age of the empire.
And we were shoutin'
"They are one we are thousands!
Though their lies are the loud ones
We are the human fountain!"

A dreamer you could call be but you know I'm not the only one now.
The power of two. Two to the power of people like you.

What do the kings know of the poor man's lives and their trials and all of their dreams and
pullin' the weeds out of their gardens-
"Sick and dyin' those are their problems"-
you villains,
when will you have enough?

What are we for?
What is our message?
Solidarity forever.
And humanist ethic[s].

Oh and if the timer were to run us out
and we were all to die upon the burning bough
I won't regret we tried, I know, we tried with love
Cause just to be aliven the odds the odds the odds.

How We miss you Martin, Mahandas, George, and John. Abraham, Vinccetti, Sacco, Jesus on.

What are we for?
What is our message?
Solidarity forever.
And humanist ethic.

Oh and all my humans how I love you now
let's build a life for ev'ryone and make it sound
like dreams in past of angels' song and pluck the bow
to ride out on an arrow past the sun.

How We miss you Martin, Mahatma, George, and John. Abraham, Vinccetti, Sacco, Jesus on.
