"Yet even in this darkness I see light / The candle of our hope flickers somehow"
Candle of Our Hope
Enough of all the crass vulgarity Of those who care for war more than the poor Unworthy is their harsh hegemony Of you and me and in the end they bore
They huff and puff and seek to frighten us Are darkest when they would enlighten us But they are only sadly misused tools Enslaved without their knowledge by the fools Who own and operate the world today
If we think independently we are Thought blasphemous subversive and bizarre They wish they could just make us go away But this is our land too where we were born
So why will they not allow us to warn That something is wrong in the USA?
I am a cat with claws and I strike back When cowards lie in wait to then attack When I am weak as they sneak up on me I leave to the justice of destiny Their judgment but we will be free someday
Yet even in this darkness I see light The candle of our hope flickers somehow That here among the wrong one thing is right No yesterday tomorrow only now:
