We'll Rise Again
This is song #3 in the Auntie-Sin challenge.
I synthesized two very different songs by @andygetch and @scubed. "Freedom is our Worship Word" and "You Caught Me". Both songs shared a certain beat on the shakers and used strings, so I capitalized on that in writing my song. I also mashed their lyrics together, keeping the spirit of the first song and the light, high vocals of the second one.
1. I was a butterfly, flitting from flower to flower.
They came from sea and sky. They took away my power.
I wanted peace, to catch a breeze, to move as I pleased. They caught me. They destroyed my tribe.
They came along and stole my song. Where do I belong when they steal home with a bribe?
Freedom is our worship word.
Love will conquer hate.
Hill and vale, beast and bird;
Nature knows to wait.
We'll rise again, our spirits strong,
And take over the concrete.
Freedom is our worship song.
Listen to the heartbeat.
2. I was a waterfall, fresh from a mountain lake.
Blowing bubbles, loving all--they take and take and take.
Raping the women, hurting the children, killing the men. They caught me, polluting my sacred land.
Now a trickle in a dam, I don't know who I am.
Will my spirit rise again?
3. As they choke on deadly air,
The ice will melt, deserts will form.
As they take and do not share,
Famine spreads, disease will roam.
Nature's wild heart will not be tamed.
They'll kill themselves like dinosaurs.
I'll triumph--love is my game.
I'll persist despite their roars.
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
