about

Without the proper means to travel to Wall Street myself, I want to do SOMETHING to support the people that have gone and will go. My strongest power is writing music. So that's what I did.

lyrics

WE ARE THE 99

there gets to be a point you gotta stop signing your name
and start showing up
using your voice to prove
that you don't underestimate yourself
whether in person, or simply in song
show us what you mean
what you mean

irrigation systems work best
when there's crops that need to eat
point your pipe in the wrong direction
you've got water in the street
five people to an umbrella with the same thought in their teeth
that's community

a social circle at its best
pass your lessons to the left
pass your lessons to the left

that's how i learned to be independent
and how to go to open mic
how to stand on the streets of the rich
and hold up a sign
how to dam that raging river
one rock at a time
we are the 99

my friends and me will make music
as distraction from the heat
partial meeting of the minds
partial activist retreat
five people to a melody will distract your feet
it makes your heart beat
it makes your heart beat

a social circle at its best
take your lessons from the left
take your lessons from the left

that's how i learned to be independent
and how to go to open mic
how to stand on the streets of the rich
and hold up a sign
how to dam that raging river
one rock at a time
we are the 99
