Lyrics

Hammer To Fall

Here we stand or here we fall
History won't care at all
Make the bed, light the light
Lady Mercy won't be home tonight.

You don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
We're just waiting for the hammer to fall

Oh every night, and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
But lift your face the Western Way
Build your muscles as your body decays.

Tow the line and play their game
Let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know it's time for the hammer to fall.

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it's all the same
(Oh no! Oh no!)
Lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane
(Oh no!)
Baby, now your struggle's all vain.

For we who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the Mushroom Cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
We just wanna scream it louder and louder and louder

What the hell are we fighting for?
Just surrender and it won't hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
While you're waiting for the hammer to—hammer to fall.

Yeah! Yes.
Let's get on the floor!
Yeah! Hammer!
You know
Hammer to fall!

Yeah!

I've been waiting for the hammer to fall!
While you're waiting for the hammer to fall.

Give it to me one more time!

I’m not so sure this will fit here, compared to the comparatively soft way of Queen, but here’s a song from Alternosfera, a band from Moldova.

The song Theme is Wamintirile.

Amintiri means memories.
The song is about how our memories influence us.

In the refrain he sings “ma omoara amintirile” , which means “my memories kill me”. (The memories he makes while watching TV)

The video is quite self explicative I guess.
However, be warned that it might be disrupting.

In my eyes, the criticism they do is spot on. A very powerful visualization about how we are manipulated, they have some very provocative images imo, combined with the agressive music style it is … well decide for yourself.

Here comes the sun by George Harrison

Here is song by George Harrison. If you understand sun as a metaphor for Consciousness, you can see this song as an ode to awakening. It describes a young person, living through a cold winter of disconnection, suddenly having the walls (the ice) fall away and the sun comes shining through. With the Sun/Consciousness comes good feelings, clarity (years since it's been clear), and it's alright. Compare the message here with my Allegory of the Room, which is also about walls falling, people warming up and the sun of Consciousness shining through.

Lyrics

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And I say it's all right
It's all right

Exodus by Bob Marley

This is a Calling to awaken. This is a call to Jah's people, God's people, to awaken and connect. Men and women will resist (will fight ya down) when you start to connect (see Jah Light/God's Light). But that's ok because we are going to be the generation to walk through great tribulation and succeed. Exodus is the movement from the darkness and despair of disconnection (Babylon) to the light and joy of connection (God's Land).  Are you ready to awaken? Then look within. Pray for another avatar (another Brother moses) to lead us across the Red Sea of disconnection. Movement of Jah people. Movement of God's people. Movement towards connection. Movement of the connected.

Lyrics

Exodus: Movement of Jah people! Oh-oh-oh, yea-eah!
...
Men and people will fight ya down (Tell me why!)
When ya see Jah light. (Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!)
Let me tell you if you're not wrong; (Then, why?)
Everything is all right.
So we gonna walk - all right! - through de roads of creation:
We the generation (Tell me why!)
(Trod through great tribulation) trod through great tribulation.

Exodus, all right! Movement of Jah people!
Oh, yeah! O-oo, yeah! All right!
Exodus: Movement of Jah people! Oh, yeah!

Yeah-yeah-yeah, well!
Uh! Open your eyes and look within:
Are you satisfied (with the life you're living)? Uh!
We know where we're going, uh!
We know where we're from.
We're leaving Babylon,
We're going to our Father land.

2, 3, 4: Exodus: movement of Jah people! Oh, yeah!
(Movement of Jah people!) Send us another brother Moses!
(Movement of Jah people!) From across the Red Sea!
(Movement of Jah people!) Send us another brother Moses!
(Movement of Jah people!) From across the Red Sea!
Movement of Jah people!

/Instrumental break/

Exodus, all right! Oo-oo-ooh! Oo-ooh!
Movement of Jah people! Oh, yeah!
Exodus!
Exodus! All right!
Exodus! Now, now, now, now!
Exodus!
Exodus! Oh, yea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eah!
Exodus!
Exodus! All right!
Exodus! Uh-uh-uh-uh!

Move! Move! Move! Move! Move! Move!

Open your eyes and look within:
Are you satisfied with the life you're living?
We know where we're going;
We know where we're from.
We're leaving Babylon, y'all!
We're going to our Father's land.

Exodus, all right! Movement of Jah people!
Exodus: movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!

Move! Move! Move! Move! Move! Move! Move!

Jah come to break downpression,
Rule equality,
Wipe away transgression,
Set the captives free.

Exodus, all right, all right!
Movement of Jah people! Oh, yeah!
Exodus: movement of Jah people! Oh, now, now, now, now!
Movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!

Move! Move! Move! Move! Move! Move! Uh-uh-uh-uh!

Move(ment of Jah people)!
Move(ment of Jah people)! Movement of Jah people!
Move(ment of Jah people)!
Move(ment of Jah people)!
Movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!
Movement of Jah people!

Under Pressure by Queen

This song is about people stuck in Normal Consciousness,  people who can't escape from under the ideological thumb of The System, people who are slowly dying under its emotional and psychological toxicity. It's also a recognition that if we don't change, serious consequences are coming soon. What's the answer? It's not sitting on the fence like a blind man. The answer is Love.  But love is such an old fashion word. And love is so hard, because love is a challenge and to love you must care for everybody.  So don't bother and don't try. Just dance your last dance... "under pressure."

Lyrics

Bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah*
Bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah
Pressure, pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure, that burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah
Bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah

That's okay
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"
Pray tomorrow takes me higher
Pressure on people, people on streets

Doh doh doh bah bah bah bah
Okay
Chipping around, kick my brains around the floor
These are the days it never rains but it pours
People on streets, people on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"

Pray tomorrow takes me higher
Pressure on people, people on streets

Turned away from it all, like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love
But it's so slashed and torn
Why, why, why?
Love, love, love, love

Insanity laughs, under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love one more chance
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love, give love

Because love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For the people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves

This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure

Fight from the inside by Queen

From one of my favorite bands of all time, a very simple "Calling" to awaken, directed at A-list celebrities who think they're doing good but are really just perpetuating the System. Done before "selling in" became the thing to do.

 

Lyrics

Hey you boy, hey you
Hey you boy, think that you know what you're doing
You think you're gonna set things to rights
You're just another picture on a teenage wall
You're just another sucker ready for a fall

You gotta fight from the inside
Attack from the rear
Fight from the inside
You can't win with your hands tied
Fight from the inside
Ooh, ooh, aah
Fight from the inside
Right down the line

Hey you boy, hey you
Hey you boy, think that you know what you're doing
You think that out in the streets is all true
You're just another, money-spinner tool
You're just another, fool

You gotta fight from the inside
Attack from the rear
Fight from the inside
You can't win with your hands tied
Fight from the inside
Ooh, ooh, aah
Fight from the inside
Right down the line
Right down the line
Right down the line

Let the Sunshine in - from the musical Hair

This is a song, from our previous attempt, that an advanced student would get in an instant. A very powerful Calling. It's about the desperate grey hell of Normal Consciousness that most people walk around in. Swaddled in winter cloths to protect themselves, wearing perfumes from laboratories, and participating in the paper fantasy of a dying nation, they are marched off to war as sacrifices so that the System can bleed another generation dry. Let the sunshine in before it's too late!

Lyrics

We Starve-look at one another short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes

Somewhere, inside something there is a rush of
Greatness who knows what stands in front of,
Our lives I fashion my future on films in space
Silence tells me secretly, everything everything
Manchester England, England
Across the Atlantic Sea
I'm a genius, genius
I believe in God and I believe that God believes in Claude that's me.

We Starve-look at one another short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories

Facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes

Singing our space songs on a spider web sitar.
Life is around you and in you
Answer for Timothy Leary deary

Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in
The sunshine in

Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in

Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in. the sunshine in

The joy in this song comes close to the bliss of connection

Everything is sound

 

Lyrics

When there is love, I can't wait to talk about it
When things get rough, I like to walk with you
Or when it's night, I like to be the light that's missing
And remind you every minute of the future isn't written
Not yet

When there is love, or when the heart feels heavy
We can lighten it up, if you've had enough
Well you can empty your glass and we can fill it back up
You know it's up to us to make it all up
So what you making up? I can make it up back
You could be loved no matter what
And know the only time is right now, it's right where... where you are
You don't need a vacation when there's nothing to escape from

Singing
La la la la
Let's all sing
La la la la
Laying it down
Everything is sound

Let's sing to be happy, to feel things, to communicate, and be heard
Or sing out to protest, and to project, and to harmonize with birds
Whether it's your birthday or your dying day
It's a celebration too
Rejoice to use your voice and give wings to any of choice
Whatever you're choosing right now, it's right where... where you are
You don't need a vacation when there's nothing to escape from

Set your vibration and undulation to the hightest it can go
And trust me, hear me
If it makes you wanna sing
Just sing it

La la la la
Let's all sing
La la la la
Laying it down
Everything is sound
La la la la
Let's all sing
La la la la
Hallelujah

It's a song that I've forgotten often
It doesn't make me wrong
Cause we all need the darkness, to see the light
In our own eyes, come on, and sing it

La la la la
Let's all sing
La la la la
Laying it down
Everything is sound
La la la la
Let's all sing
La la la la
Hallelujah
We're connected now
La la la la
Let's all sing
Hallelujah
Everything is sound
La la la
Let's all sing
La la la la
Hallelujah
We're connected now

It's a kind of magic

All I can say about this song is, wow. This is not only about awakening, but about the collective awakening of the planet. It's not just a song, but a prophecy of global awakening, activation, and ascension!

 

It's a kind of magic

It's a kind of magic.
It's a kind of magic.
A kind of magic.

One dream, one soul,
One prize, one goal.
One golden glance of what should be.

It's a kind of magic.

One shaft of light that shows the way.
No mortal man can win this day.

It's a kind of magic.

The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time.

It's a kind of magic.

The waiting seems eternity.
The day will dawn of sanity.

Is this a kind of magic?
(It's a kind of magic.)
There can be only one.
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done.

This flame that burns inside of me.
I'm hearing secret harmonies.

It's a kind of magic.

The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time.

It's a kind of magic.
It's a kind of magic.

This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be—
Will soon be—
Will soon be done.

This is (this is) a kind (a kind) of magic.
There can be only one.
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done. (Done.)

Magic.
It's a kind of magic.
It's a kind of magic, magic, magic, magic, magic.

It's magic.

It's a kind of magic.
