Brilliant young traditional guitarist from Hawai'i puts on his best Woody Guthrie and offers us this.
Get a taste of his regular gig and background here.
Lyrics after the danish of power and unity.
If you want to sing along....
We Are the Many
We come here, gather ‘round the stage / The time has come for us to voice our rage
Against the ones who trapped us in a cage / To steal from us the value of our wage
From underneath the vestiture of law / The lobbyists at Washington do gnaw
At liberty; the bureaucrats guffaw / And until they are purged we won’t withdraw
We’ll occupy the streets, we’ll occupy the courts / We’ll occupy the offices of you
‘Til you do / The bidding of the many, not the few
Our nation was built upon the right / Of every person to improve their plight
The laws of this republic they rewrite / And now the few own everything in sight
They own it free of liability / They own, but they are not like you and me
Their influence dictates legality / And until they are stopped we are not free
You enforce your monopolies with guns / While sacrificing our daughters and sons
Well, certain things belong to everyone / You’re thievery has left the people none
So take heed of our notice to redress / We have little to lose we must confess
Your empty words leave us unimpressed / A growing number join us in protest
You can’t divide us into sides / And, from our gaze you cannot hide
Denial serves to amplify / And our allegiance you can’t buy
Our government is not for sale / The banks do not deserve a bail
We won’t reward those who fail / we’ll not move ‘til we prevail
We are the many, you are the few.
