Much of the misery, suffering and exploitation that is so palpable to so many right now, relies on deception, hopelessness and complacency in order to maintain power. Only with hearts, minds and eyes wide open can we really find our way forward. Music helps us open, and we hope this song can help you as we find our collective way forward.

This song came to us by way of two brave women: Malvina Reynolds who wrote it, and Barbara Dane who made this arrangement. As they demonstrated on the front lines of past freedom struggles, working for freedom is not always seen as nice, convenient or even permissible by law. But we need to embrace it, otherwise we are working against our own humanity.

If freedom is the absence of subjugation to domination, we have a lot of work to do before we all truly have access to this fundamental ideal. And there are so many courageous examples of this work. This song means to move you into rebellion. To embrace your power to disrupt the viciousness that is permitted by complacency.
