Description
Here is another great song by Stan Loh (Lagusaya2.) I was proud and honored to do this for him. It's kinda rough and I really meant to polish it farther but when I sent it to him it was on the very day of the event it was written for so it was posted just then (on icompositions) and that was fine with me.
I meant to post this here at the same time and though Stan didn't ask me to I post it today as better late than never.

Here is what it's all about in Stan's words:
"Today, July 9th 2011 is the day for a huge rally called Bersih 2.0 in Kuala Lumpur...it sends a message to the corrupt government of Malaysia to clean up its act in running unfair elections! Bersih means CLEAN. This song advocates better elected government without racism and nepotism. Up to 1 million marchers are expected.

Jibes produced this piece for me. Thanks Neal! Love your sound!"

Lyrics
I’m Not Guilty And The World Knows That
Copyright Stan Loh January 1, 2011

Like a pirate you steal off people’s back,
They condemn you; your soldiers counterattack,
You buy their votes, and fire their thirst,
And raise your fists with racial curse,
Your papers hide you! And the world knows that!

Verse 2
God’s your witness to your deeds of dishonesty,
All your cunning can’t change history,
You’re unafraid that your secrets show,
Though you hide the trail of stolen dough,
You’re so guilty! And the world knows that!

Chorus
I’m not guilty! You won’t break my will!
I’m not guilty! You will have to kill!
You can lock me up, break my hands,
Slave my children, take my land,
I may be killed, but you won’t defeat me!
I may be killed, but you won’t defeat me!

Verse 3
Hidden orders, your juries will impeach,
Spineless judges silenced by your reach,
My scars will heal where the lashes scored,
Where you thrust my face to the muddy floor,
You’re so guilty! And the world knows that!
Repeat chorus

I like the arrangement & vocal. The lyric makes some strong statements, but I think it assumes that the listener will have a greater perspective on the situation that the song describes.

That government is a mess, isn't it?
Good song. I'm wondering a bit about the balance between the vocals and background. It's probably a matter of taste that I would have mixed them a bit further back. Which would probably have made them less intelligibile, so I understand why you did it this way.

The mix is not right on this song. I sent this rough draft to Stan and little did I know it was the actual day of the event. So Stan posted the version I sent him and that was alright with me. But I was going to redo the Vocals and the mix but if it was good enough for Stan it was good enough for me! #:)
