PPS we love your occupation, an inspiration world over obviously... but why is it impossible to get a decent cup of tea in the US? It really makes a mockery of the Tea Party if your nation can't even get it together to make a proper cuppa!

For pre-existing songs, I think the song Stand! by Sly and the Family Stone would be a good choice,with lyrics like "Stand! In the end you'll still be you, one who's done all the things you set out to do, Stand! For the things you know are right, it's the truth that the truth makes them so uptight!" "There's a midget standing tall, and a giant beside him about to fall" I'm working on an original though!

"Where Is The Love?"

What's wrong with the world, mama People livin' like they ain't got no mamas I think the whole world addicted to the drama Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism But we still got terrorists here livin' In the USA, the big CIA fightin' The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK But if you only have love for your own race Then you only leave space to discriminate And to discriminate only generates hate And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah Madness is what you demonstrate And that's exactly how anger works and operates Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight Take control of your mind and meditate Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all

People killin', people dyin' Children hurt and you hear them cryin' Can you practice what you preach And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us Send some guidance from above 'Cause people got me, got me questionin' Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love) Where is the love (The love) Where is the love The love, the love

It just ain't the same, always unchanged New days are strange, is the world insane If love and peace is so strong Why are there pieces of love that don't belong Nations droppin' bombs Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones With ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin' in Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug If you never know truth then you never know love Where's the love, y'all, come on (I don't know) Where's the truth, y'all, come on (I don't know) Where's the love, y'all

People killin', people dyin' Children hurt and you hear them cryin' Can you practice what you preach And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us Send some guidance from above 'Cause people got me, got me questionin' Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love) Where is the love (The love) Where is the love (The love) Where is the love (The love) Where is the love, the love, the love?

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder Most of us only care about money makin' Selfishness got us followin' our wrong direction Wrong information always shown by the media Negative images is the main criteria Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity Whatever happened to the fairness in equality Instead of spreading love we're spreading animosity Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found Now ask yourself

Where is the love? Where is the love? Where is the love? Where is the love?

Father, Father, Father help us Send some guidance from above 'Cause people got me, got me questionin' Where is the love?

Sing wit me y'all: One world, one world (We only got) One world, one world (That's all we got) One world, one world And something's wrong wit it (Yeah) Something's wrong wit it (Yeah) Something's wrong wit the wo-wo-world, yeah We only got (One world, one world) That's all we got (One world, one world)

I just recorded a song called The World Is Waking UP Right Now" and I am looking for anyone to collaborate with. It's female vocal, pop rock. If you have footage of OWS and you need music that resonates, please contact me.
as soon as I get a link up to give it away, I will post again!

It starts off: "Realize, I've been living in a web of lies...hypnotized, infantilaized, spiritually paralysed..come to see we're running out of reasons we should be wasting all our energy on this insanity" Good hooks, great chorus-- email songtime@earthlink.net for an mp3 or link

I nominate Pink Floyd's "I Wish You Were Here." It just seems to fit the mood of OWS. You can hear it at http://youtu.be/3j8mr-gcgoI

---- I Wish You Were Here ----

So, so you think you can tell

Heaven from Hell,

Blue skies from pain.

Can you tell a green field

From a cold steel rail?

A smile from a veil?

Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade

Your heroes for ghosts?

Hot ashes for trees?

Hot air for a cool breeze?

Cold comfort for change?

And did you exchange

A walk on part in the war

For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.

We're just two lost souls

Swimming in a fish bowl,

Year after year,

Running over the same old ground.

What have we found?

The same old fears.

Wish you were here.

Hey Rico, I'm a Pink Floyd fan too. What about Pink Floyd Animals?! They articulate this whole scene in their lyrics; Dogs, Pigs and Sheep etc.... http://www.ingsoc.com/waters/personal/animals.html

[-] 1 points by Rico (3027) 3 years ago

Yep, Animals has a lot of good material that would apply. Pink Floyd in GENERAL is one of the groups that, in my opinion, really had a LOT to say. I just picked "Wish You Were Here" because it's melancholy tone just reminds me of so much I hear from OWS folks.

Titus Andronicus-Richard II http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjaWJ74GkXA

The album is based on the civil war so it fits well

"Soon you'll be burning orphanages down Watching ashes scattering all over town And when the smoke gets too close to the ground You'll see blue trampling over gray and green over brown

And you'll be cutting ears off of dead men Pumping shells into the carcass for hours on end Then you'll swear that we've always been friends And be unable to conceive it could ever happen again

Of course, you have never been to blame For the various horrible things that you did You may have gotten away with them too If not for those meddling kids

The lump in your throat, the ache in your bones They are nobody's fault but your own

And whatever amount you paid For your many distractions, well, it was too much Oh, and at the end of the day To whatever extent that you hate yourself, it isn't enough

And we can no longer afford Waiting for someone to lift this terrible swift sword In our basements, we all look so bored We've never seen the glory of the coming of the Lord

There will be parties, there will be fun There'll be tall gallows for everyone And we will all be sleeping easy upon the sinking of the sun But there's only one dream that I keep close and it's the one of my hand at your throat

I will not deny my humanity I'll be rolling in it like a pig in feces 'Cause there's no other integrity In awaiting the demise of our species

May you endure every indignity knowing all the while that life will go on And when it ends, may you have nothing to say, except that it took too long And may I be there somehow Asking, "Where are all your friends now?"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2wvJUZYQ7o

We don't care what flag you're waving

We don't even want to know your name

We don't care where you're from or where you're going

All we know is that you came

You're making all our decisions

We have just one request of you

That while you're thinking things over

Here's something you just better do

Free the people now Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now

Well we were caught with our hands in the air

Don't despair paranoia is everywhere

We can shake it with love when we're scared

So let's shout it aloud like a prayer

Free the people now

Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now

We understand your paranoia

But we don't want to play your game

You think you're cool and know what you are doing

666 is your name

So while you're jerking off each other

You better bear this thought in mind

Your time is up you better know it

But maybe you don't read the signs

Free the people now Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now

Well you were caught with your hands in the kill

And you still got to swallow your pill

As you slip and you slide down the hill

On the blood of the people you killed

Stop the killing (Free the people now) Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now

"Love Don't Run" - By Steve Holy

This is gonna hurt, this is gonna hurt like hell This is gonna damn near kill me, sometimes the truth ain't easy I know that you’re scared of telling me something I don’t wanna hear, but baby believe that I’m not leaving, you couldn’t give me one good reason

[Chorus:] Love don’t run, love don’t hide It won't turn away or back down from a fight Baby I’m right here and I ain't going anywhere Love’s too tough it wont give up no not on us Baby Love don’t run

Let’s lay it on the line, I don’t care if it takes all night cause This is gonna make us stronger, it’s gonna make forever longer I know it’d be easier walking away but what we got is real And I wanna save us, baby we can do it, Baby we’ll get through it 'cause...

[Chorus:] Love don’t run, love don’t hide It won't turn away or back down from a fight Baby I’m right here and I ain't going anywhere Love’s too tough, it wont give up no not on us Baby Love don’t run Baby love don’t run

[Bridge:] So come over here and lay down in my arms Baby tell me everything that’s on your heart, 'cause...

[Chorus:] I won’t run, and I won’t hide I won’t turn away, I just wanna make things right Baby I’m right here and I ain't going anywhere Love’s too tough it won’t give up no not on us Baby Love don’t run Baby Love don’t run

Union Sundown

Well, my shoes, they come from Singapore My flashlight’s from Taiwan My tablecloth’s from Malaysia My belt buckle’s from the Amazon You know, this shirt I wear comes from the Philippines And the car I drive is a Chevrolet It was put together down in Argentina By a guy makin’ thirty cents a day

Well, it’s sundown on the union And what’s made in the U.S.A. Sure was a good idea ’Til greed got in the way

Well, this silk dress is from Hong Kong And the pearls are from Japan Well, the dog collar’s from India And the flower pot’s from Pakistan All the furniture, it says “Made in Brazil” Where a woman, she slaved for sure Bringin’ home thirty cents a day to a family of twelve You know, that’s a lot of money to her

Well, it’s sundown on the union And what’s made in the U.S.A. Sure was a good idea ’Til greed got in the way

Well, you know, lots of people complainin’ that there is no work I say, “Why you say that for When nothin’ you got is U.S.–made?” They don’t make nothin’ here no more You know, capitalism is above the law It say, “It don’t count ’less it sells” When it costs too much to build it at home You just build it cheaper someplace else

Well, it’s sundown on the union And what’s made in the U.S.A. Sure was a good idea ’Til greed got in the way

Well, the job that you used to have They gave it to somebody down in El Salvador The unions are big business, friend And they’re goin’ out like a dinosaur They used to grow food in Kansas Now they want to grow it on the moon and eat it raw I can see the day coming when even your home garden Is gonna be against the law

Well, it’s sundown on the union And what’s made in the U.S.A. Sure was a good idea ’Til greed got in the way

Democracy don’t rule the world You’d better get that in your head This world is ruled by violence But I guess that’s better left unsaid From Broadway to the Milky Way That’s a lot of territory indeed And a man’s gonna do what he has to do When he’s got a hungry mouth to feed

Well, it’s sundown on the union And what’s made in the U.S.A. Sure was a good idea ’Til greed got in the way

Requiem for a Dream ?

[-] 1 points by maryannfarley (1) 3 years ago

I wrote this song, "My Life of Crime," about ten years ago when I became ill and could no longer afford health care. As I threw my doctor bills in the trash, I began to feel like a criminal. Here's the song/video on YouTube, accompanied by my photos taken Oct. 5 at the OWS protest.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTKobZr19c8

If I can stay in shape, If I can stay in line, If I can stay the course, I'll be doing fine, Nobody knows, nobody feels what they do not see, And it's killing me, It's making me feel like I have to take, like I have to steal, I stepped upon a mine, And stumbled into... my life of crime

If I could call the shots, If I could call the game, If I could call you up, If I could place the blame, How would it feel? How is it knowing you made a deal, And now you're petrified, Cause I won't plead, I'll simply take everything I need, And never do my time, I stumbled into... my life of crime

'Cause the pie's not getting bigger, The weak just wilt and wither, And I just can't deliver, I'll keep it brief, I am a thief

It's always on my mind, And eating at me, I dream of days without worry, Oh but until that time, I stumbled into... I'm feeling fine, Here's it's debut... I'll take what's mine, And I'll take it from you, My life of crime

exacly what does that mean? Becaus ewealth is even, its worthless. Thats an idotic statement.

[-] 1 points by gtyper (477) from San Antonio, TX 3 years ago

Actually, yes. It's demand-pull inflation.

You cannot distribute money like that. Doesn't work.

[-] 1 points by ChrisArnold (68) 3 years ago

What that figure says, witht the amount of people at work and not right now, everyone could have a home. Thats including seperating everyone, kids, familys. That means that we could live in a soceity where everyone who participated in the system could have what people consider a good life. If an economic plan was bassed on the idea of equal oppertunity for all who participate, then you would eliminate the possibility for someone to try and fail, and you would prevent slackers from reaping the benifits.

[-] 1 points by gtyper (477) from San Antonio, TX 3 years ago

Actually, what that figure says is nothing of the sort.

Overnight what the value of a single dollar represents would be diminished.

Who would build your homes that everyone could have? The millionaire next door? Doubtful. Who is going to run the electrical plant? The millionaire next door? Doubtful.

There are only so many high paying jobs. You need cheap labor. Period. You need people to do the menial tasks that others can't be bothered with. It's an unfortunate truth.

You simply can't redistribute wealth in any way like you suggest.

[-] 1 points by ChrisArnold (68) 3 years ago

wow...did you read anything i said. I said a system could be created, not distribute wealth and our system will work.

[-] 1 points by gtyper (477) from San Antonio, TX 3 years ago

Then you need to explain yourself better.

The way I see it - what you're saying is that there is enough money for everyone. That we can pay everyone ridiculous salaries so long as they participate.

My point is that the dollar becomes revalued due to demand-push inflation.

[-] 1 points by ChrisArnold (68) 2 years ago

no....i'm not talking about that. I'm saying a whole updated system could be created. One where you do have freedom to own property, but in a way limited to a degree so few people don't own most land. I'm not saying i could make one, though i do have good ideas on a true equal oppertunity society. A money system within U.S. could be built where it wasn't bassed on resource but buying power for your contribute to the system. We would progress in tech alot faster in a system where all companies are owned by the country, not individual. As we learn more, we create new systems, so why live by an old economic system that dosen't work so great?

[-] 1 points by gtyper (477) from San Antonio, TX 2 years ago

You say that - but there are more examples of government inefficiencies than there are of them creating progress. I can't imagine that a government with complete control would strive for efficiency.

[-] 1 points by ChrisArnold (68) 2 years ago

the government dosen't have to be seperate from the people. As in, by beieng in the top of government, on a real election process where every vote truly counts, you do not reap benifits any different from anyone else, you get paid for your job, you do not get donations, i would say it would be fair if they made the wages equivalent to $100-$200 a year today. This would be in buying power within the system, read below...where i give a decent little system structure.

[-] 1 points by rush2547 (5) 3 years ago

Tell us how that system should be established. How do you get someone to continue working after they receive their 2 million dollars? Are you going to tell someone that wants to be a doctor that he cant be a doctor, he has to be a policeman? That to me is infringing on the right to choose ones own destiny. It then becomes an infringement of my liberty to do what I want to do.

[-] 1 points by ChrisArnold (68) 2 years ago

A system where money isn't bassed on resourse but buying power for contributing by School, or job. Different amounts of credits for different jobs. Doctors make alot and can own alot, low end get paid a wage good enough to live comfortably on. School counts as low end job. When you die you can't pass down credits or property to family unless certain condictions arise. Like as one example, a family man dies while wife is raising kid. We all work for the system, if jobs are needed they are created. All products would be built for easy recycling, non polluting and best quality. An unemployment system where if your'er on list you get paid minimum, if feilds are needed like nurse or anything, you can either train for the position you select within availble jobs or you're off the list and you do not recieve pay. Slackers don't get paid, disabled cases do get paid minimum. Minimum pay like i said is enough to live decent on, like lower middle class today. retirement age is 65 unless you choose to continue to work. Retirement pay is bassed on your job, and how good you are at it, as is your pay. Theres a few ideas. I'm sure a scientist could do a way better job. But basically a system where you a guaranteed opportunity to participate and have a good life. But if you choose not, you do not benifit.

[-] 1 points by ChrisArnold (68) 2 years ago

If the people demand more high paying jobs, like lots of people who wanted to be doctors....but couldn't find a job as a doctor. Then more positions would be created in health, and our soceity would just be focusing more on health...which isn't a bad idea. If more people wanted to be scientist, we would open more positions allowing more reasearch into tech and understanding and our soecity would progress more in science which also helps alot. Just more ideas, its a good structure, just needs to be modified as problems are found. Not hard to do for me. But i love creating systems, i taught myself how to program in Microsoft Visual Basic V3-6pro as hobby. I wasn't a pro, i wasn't to fimilar on using dll's, but i loved writing liettle systems involving data files and the use of moduels.

[-] 1 points by ChrisArnold (68) 2 years ago

you wouldn't split the money up. All that would do is waste time and new people would eventually end up with all the money, its the system that is flawed, not the individual, though they are greedy, the system we live by creates greed.

"Uprising" -by the band Muse

Here's the lyrics:

The paranoia is in bloom, the PR Transmissions will resume, they'll try to Push drugs, keep us all dumb down and hope that We will never see the truth around, so come on

Another promise, another scene, another Package not to keep us trapped in greed with all the Green belts wrapped around our minds and endless Red tape to keep the truth confined, so come on

They will not force us And they will stop degrading us And they will not control us We will be victorious, so come on

Interchanging mind control, come let the Revolution take its toll, if you could Flick a switch and open your third eye, you'd see that We should never be afraid to die, so come on

Rise up and take the power back, it's time that The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that Their time is coming to an end, we have to Unify and watch our flag ascend, so come on

They will not force us They will stop degrading us They will not control us We will be victorious, so come on
