lyrics

I Am The Revolution

marching not with a closed fist but with an open heart,
of a billion headed, multi-limbed body, stretching back through time
to a single cell that still divides and has never died.

I am the revolution of the word,
the word made flesh,
the flesh making words.

I am the revolution
I am the revolution
I am the revolution

14 billion years in the making,
of hieroglyphs and sub-atomic particles,
moons, stars, a sun, a milky way, galaxy's,
of matter, mind and consciousness,
I am that here before, never ending, subjective all experiencing bliss!

I am the revolution
and I am leading little legions through the parted sea, out of Ireland-unfree
and I hear her children singing I'm angry mad as hell
and I'm not gonna take this anymore.

I am the revolution
and I will be televised on RTE, SKY, and the BBC,
you will see me in 100 years
on 50 foot plasma 3D plug yerself in bio-cybernetic TV's,
I am a maker of history.

I am the revolution
no burning effigy,
but burning with the joy of existence,
a hunk of burning love,
burning bright and strong,
burning like Einstein's brain, James Brown's feet,
Muhhamed Ali's fists and Bruce Lee's kicks,
burning like the colour's Red, Yellow and Orange.

I am the revolution
terrifying, 200ft tall,
Godzilla like, wreaking havoc on the open mic,
trampling Moloch's armies into paste,
smashing his thousand blind windows in,
swallowing whole the mass media machine,
digesting it and shiting it back out
as a piece of postmodern art stool.

I am the revolution
I am the revolution
I am the revolution

I am the revolution
I am not Marxist, Capitalist, Catholic, Buddhist, Taoist,
left-wing, right-wing,Republican, Democrat,
I am maddening, entertaining, nothing and everything,
I am a warrior, who has no sword or gun,
but I am armed with a Tape recorder,
Magick wand, Microphone, Pen and a Voice,
I have Tanka torpedoes, Hakui hand grenades, slashing stanza's, lethal litany's
and a Hip-Hop Hydrogen poetry bomb, that will produce a mushroom cloud
that spells the word FREEDOM across the glowing sky!

I am the revolution
and I will infected the system like a super virus,
multiplying exponionally till their's a billion mother fuckers saying they're the revolution
and they're not gonna take this anymore!

I am the revolution
and I see a lot of labels and players in this devine theather,
but I wanna see more Heros in the play.

I am the revolution
of the object know as time, I am Dinosaur, Shakesphere, UFO's
and telepathic-tantrick-Zen master-Voodoo cultual engineers!

I am the revolution
I am music in your soul
music
in
your soul
I am the revolution
we are the revolution
we are we are we are!
