The Resistance
(Part 2)

June 17, 2015

 

Understanding and wisdom are not found in the answers, but rather in asking the right questions.

Enlightenment, illumination and ascension are not found at the destination, but rather
they are realized in the steps that one makes (and takes) along the journey.

The "invasion" has already happened. The nature of the "resistance"
will be determined by how each person chooses to address it.

Questions for Contemplation

1) Do the seven songs above represent seven different approaches to the resistance?

2 ) Or, do they represent a progression of thought and understanding on the journey
of awakening?

3) Or, are they simply seven different shades of the resistance that unfold over
time and then eventually reintegrate back into one?

4) What does one equal?

5) What does seven equal?

 

Song Lyrics
 

Escape
(Journey)

He's just a young boy out of school
Livin' his world like he wants to
They're makin' laws, but they don't understand
Turns a boy in to a fightin' man

They won't take me
They won't break me

No one could tell him what to do
Had to learn everything the hard way
He's on the street, breakin' all the rules
I'm tellin' you that he's nobody's fool

They won't take me
They won't break me

Now he's leavin', gettin' out from this masquerade
Oh gotta go

I'm finally out in the clear and I'm free
I've got dreams I'm livin' for
I'm movin' on where they'll never find me
Rollin' on to anywhere

I'll break away, yes I'm on my way
Leavin' today, yes I'm on my way

Just when you think you had it all figured out
Runnin' scared can change your mind
I never knew I had so much to give
How hard times can fool ya
Oh I'm okay, I'm alright
Feelin' good out on your own

I'll break away, I'll break away tonight
I've got dreams I'm livin' for

I'll break away
Yes, I'm on my way
I'm leaving', leavin' today
Yes, I'm on my way

This is my escape
Yes, I'm on my way
I'll break away
Yes, I'm on my way

 

Selling the Drama
(Live)

And to love, a god
And to fear, a flame
And to burn a crowd that has a name
And to right or wrong
And to meek or strong
It is known, just scream it from the wall

I've willed, I've walked, I've read
I've talked, I know, I know,
I've been here before, yeah

Now we won't be raped
Hey, now we won't be scarred like that
Hey, now we won't be raped
Hey, now we won't be scarred like that

Itís the sun that burns
Itís the wheel that turns
Itís the way we sing that makes 'em dream
And to Christ, a cross
And to me, a chair
I will sit and earn the ransom from up here

I've willed, I've walked, I've read
I've talked, I know, I know,
I've been here before, yeah

Now we won't be raped
Hey, now we won't be scarred like that
Hey, now we won't be raped
Hey, now we won't be scarred like that
Scarred like that
Scarred like that

And to love, a god
And to fear, a flame
And to burn a crowd that has a name

I've willed, I've walked, I've read
I've talked, I know, I know,
I've been here before, yeah

Now we won't be raped
Hey, now we won't be scarred like that
Hey, now we won't be raped
Hey, now we won't be scarred like that
Hey, hey, now, now, now
Wonít be scarred like that
Wonít be scarred like that

 

Won't Get Fooled Again
(The Who)

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no

Yeah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

 

Blue and Grey
(South FM)

Collected all these words
To paint this picture for you
And try to get you to see
These words might have no worth
Unless you understand that
This picture wants to be free
And I've spent all this time
In a world that chooses victims for a faceless crime
That just adds to the statistics of the hurt not seen

You never see me when I'm blue, blue, blue and grey

There's not a day gone by
That I don't see this picture
Reveal itself in my head
But everyday I try
To prove to you I'm alive
Though parts of me might be dead

And I've spent all this life
I'll carry the burden of a beaten wife
Raped and bruised and battered by the hurt not seen

You never see me when I'm blue, blue, blue and grey

You've got to be strong and proud
Don't let the loss of dignity get you down
You're more then just the flower in the field he found
Silence can't overcome with a truth so loud

You never see me when I'm blue, blue, blue and grey

 

The World I Know
 (Collective Soul)

Has our conscience shown?
Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all kindness gone?
Hope still lingers on
I drink myself of newfound pity
Sitting alone in New York City
And I don't know why

Are we listening?
Hymns of offering
Have we eyes to see?
Love is gathering
All the words that I've been reading
Have now started the act of bleeding
Into one

So I walk up on high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down
'Cause it's the world I know
It's the world I know

 

Always with Me, Always with You
(Joe Satriani)

What is always with me, and always with you?

 

The Velocity of Love
(Suzanne Ciani)

What is the velocity of Love?
