about

UPDATE! A brand new version of this song was recorded in the studio in Chicago in the summer of 2012...stay tuned for the new album "Missing Anchor" to hear it! The version posted here is the original demo version recorded in October of 2011.

I was inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests that emerged in the United States in 2011 and wrote the lyrics, music and recorded this track in my home studio as my own way of supporting people who have the courage to stand up and be heard. To help support my passion for writing, recording, and performing music, please share this with one friend!

lyrics

Hey friend, come down and stay a while
Hey friend, come down and play a while

When they say go, we'll say no
When they tell us to leave, we'll stand and scream
I will not leave
You will listen to me

Hey friends, come to see
All the things that are bothering me
Hey friends, want to know
Why I'm here to take control

When they say go, we'll say no
When they tell us to leave, we'll stand and scream
I will not leave
You will listen to me

We've all paid our dues
And we handed the power to you
Company man...it's time
It's time we get it back

When they say go, we'll say no
When they tell us to leave, we'll stand and scream
I will not leave
You will listen to me

I will not leave
You will listen to me
