Lyrics
[ revolution II ]

in memory of my grandfather who was a soldier in the finnish army against russia in the so called winter war

i was around 12 years old
my grandfather was a wounded drunk
telling me stories of the war
i promised him in faith and blood
not to ever salute the army
to always live for love

stand up and fight, march for human rights
begin with your kids, teach them what is right
tell them how it is, that some people die
some people have to pay an unfair price

human revolution

i was around 15 years old
my grandfather died in peace
i know his life was a living hell
i know what the war did to him
i can only imagine what it means
having your best friend step on a hand grenade
and do it in the name of peace?

take back your rights, take back your time
start a revolution, fight for human rights
no more big brothers, telling you what's right
no more army's, no more more fights

What I like is the Human part
I think it's a delicate balance when you use music as a soapbox to speak about big issues, but this song is redeemed in large part due to your using your very personal experience with you grandfather to relate this message. Incredible!
good production, maybe cut off a little at the end
Check out my latest song called Big Yawn (Apogee One mic demo)

Thank you
I agree, it is a delicate balance, but I'd rather stand there
toe tipping on this balance then keeping my mouth shut.
I grew up with the Brittish punk rock scene (and Jello
Biafra), hence, I still think it's very important to make and
sing songs about important issues. At the same token, my
favorite music and musicians also are trying to
communicate something - like you are Jim.

Thank you for listening to my songs today (and all the
other days). I am working very hard with my music right
now and just need to push it all out rather than second-
guessing the meaning of it all, or spending too much time
with the production... Everything has it's time! :)

Thanks again!
