Viva La Revolucion!

Music, like history, always has a way of coming back around full circle. Today while at work I listened repeatedly to a song over and over because I think it’s so fitting for this day and age. Here’s the lyrics and below is a link to the youtube video so you can relish in the song as well:

Dont you know
They’re talkin’ bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Dont you know
Theyre talkin’ about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

While theyre standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take whats theirs

Dont you know
You better run, run, run…
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run…

Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution


Talkin’ bout a revolution by Tracy Chapman

Who knows maybe our revolution is rumbling awake from a deep slumber just like Mt. Saint Helens in 1980. We’ll see. Viva La Revolucion!
