Happy New Day
the 99% are here to say
Happy New Day
we're gonna take the world back today
Happy New Day!
When we were kids, we used to go out to play all day
But as we grew up, loads of other things got in the way
Given too much to 'DO', forgot about taking time to 'BE'
We were led astray, became slaves to the 1% and
We.... forgot that we were all born
FREE.... but now we're starting to see
You know, we are all one, sharing the ship “Humanity”
And infinite LOVE, connected via singularity
We came here to learn, the lesson of unconditional LOVE
But this planet called earth, has been taken by those who live by
Greed.... but we've got 7 billion to
Feed... now we know what we need!
A Happy New Day – the 99% are here to stay
Happy New Day – we're gonna take the world back today
Happy New Day
we ain't gonna pay 'The Banksters' debts NO WAY!
we're gonna stop 'The Usury' today
we're here to tell 'The Soldiers' we don't wanna play
we're gonna take your bombs and guns away
we're here to tell 'The Taxman' “...we ain't gonna pay...”
you can tax 'The Corporations' millions a day
we ain't gonna go to work, we're going to play
we're gonna put the 'In Tray' straight in the 'Out Tray'
Happy New Day....
Happy New Day.... even if you think this song is "Gay"!
Happy New Day, we're gonna take the world back today
HAPPY NEW DAY!
Sunrise in Southern France on the day of recording
When we were at the 'Out Of The Ordinary' Festival this year (Sept 2011) I was greeted each morning by Nick M (Dr. Rock) with a "Happy New Day". I loved this because in recent years I've begun to live my life more and more in the moment and don't really measure my age any more but, when asked, I count my age by the day rather than the year. For example today, as I sit here typing this new page it is my soul's 17673'rd day in this vessel here on earth! As Peter Russell's 'Spirit of Now' page states:
"... The day is the natural cycle of our lives. The cycle of light and dark, wakefulness and sleep, has more significance than the cycle of the seasons.
Indeed, in equatorial latitudes, you hardly notice the passing of the seasons. The day is what counts..."
Anyway, since OOTO I've been singing a little "Happy New Day" chorus to myself and it seems to somehow put a bounce in my step and a smile on my face. Then as the "Occupy" movement seemed to kick off at the same time I started to get some "Happy New Day" words coming to me, and I imagine I'm on the steps at St. Paul's singing this REALLY CHEESY (but hopefully annoyingly catchy) song along with a big happy bunch of 99%-ers
You know protest songs can often be a bit dramatic, dull or even miserable but I believe that the energy we need to express right now to bring about the change we want to be is uplifting, positive energy, preferably with some tongue in cheek humour thrown in, you know like Bill Hicks said "...it's just a ride..."
If you agree SING 'HAPPY NEW DAY" - EVERY DAY!
