"Speak truth to power and scour the stain"

A Call to Resistance


The people have been torn in two

As war wastes life and drains away

The future's hope from me and you

A stain of blood descends to stay

The proud hand which holds suffering

And leads but to decline and fall


Proud they sowed but harvest will bring

Disgrace unless we soon and all

Stand free to see the prophecy

Fulfilled in us and turn away

From masters dark with cruelty

That stalking death no longer slay

The young that what could be would be


The path of peace has overgrown

Restore the road which leads to light

That madmen might be overthrown

Before there comes no end of night


Does no one still believe in peace

Enough to struggle for release

From this cold stranglehold of pain

And would we see our womb our tomb?

Our last best hope at dusk of doom

Is that we find our voice again:


Resist the grasping grip of gloom

Speak truth to power and scour the stain
