Protest Song - The ZIRP Song

The ZIRP Song

Mark Snyder, 2011



Let me tell you 'bout the Fed machine
Zero interest for the banks
So they can charge you usury
Fed don't check the bankers credit score
That's only there for you and me
So they can gouge us even more

 Yeah they they love their zero interest policy

You see with Uncle Ben and his printing press
Turbo Tim and his bailout chest They pour it out
But it don't get to you
And every new solution is just more debt
One less strand in the safety net
Too big to fail
Took that away from you

Ever wonder where that money went
Its not in the economy
Or anywhere that you can spend
No those bankers they just speculate
The money's in the price of gas
The price of food there on your plate

Yeah they they love their zero interest policy

 It don't get to you, it don't get to you They pour it out, but it don't get to you

Protest Song - We Will be Free

An anthem for direct democracy and freedom from political/economic slavery.




How you wield the power of centuries
Of the privilege borne of wealth and ease
Of the booty carried on backs of slaves
Of the soldiers fist and policeman's gaze
But rising through the crowd so boldly
Are voices you cannot ignore

(Chorus)
Hear our song
We will be free
We will stop for nothing less
Than real democracy
Kill or jail us But you will see
You will only make us strong
We will arise
And we will be free

Now your easy money - your greed and fear
Drove the oil and wheat into the stratosphere
But the least among us still have to pay
There's a breaking point and it came today

But rising through the crowd so boldly
Are voices you cannot ignore

(Chorus)


Protest Song - There is Hope

This was written to highlight that, while things might look grim, if we are willing to leave preconceptions and entitlements behind, we can grasp a future of hope.




There is hope beyond the window pane
This feed says I should read today
I know there is hope

There is hope beyond the zealot’s wars
And gunfire at the strongmen’s doors
I know there is hope

(Chorus)
       
There is hope beyond the darkness
There is hope in morning’s light
There is hope if we will leave our preconceptions far behind

There is hope beyond the best laid plans
That only  follow mom’s and dad’s
I know there is hope

There is hope beyond the blind pursuit
Of fatter gains and banker suits
 I know there is hope

(Chorus)


If we learn there is more to this than our lives                                                          
If we learn what we can give in love
If we learn there are times to lay down our rights                    
There is hope

There is hope beyond success defined
As gated homes and finer wines
I know there is hope
There is hope beyond the network crowd
That only follows here and now
I know there is hope

( Chorus)

There is hope beyond the window pane
This feed says I should read today
I know there is hope,  there is hope
