Somewhere

Somewhere © 2020 Matthew Checker

We cut across the lines to find the truth
haven of evil
and when we found you there we came to spare you
haven of evil
your pain is their prize, they hide all your cries
sleepwalk and swallow
insatiable lies of peaceful demise

Gather round my children bold, you’re inheriting a bad bad world
but flick the switch and drop your worry. Free will to be to see to feel
be the beacon of appeal and cut through the evil under the sea so dense,
pretence that clouds the soul: it’s the sole being, that distant memory

Our sentience is shared by many, but how human greed and dominion
cast compassion to the ground without a sound till we search inside

But somewhere, buried deeply in those cold remains
But somewhere, buried deeply, their pain’s our own

You are the ones made to pick up the pieces
you tell the elders supposed to lead us. They need our help –
those brothers and sisters may not look the same may not speak the same
but God what we do to them, they feel like we do, love like we do
live and die like we never could wish another that never harmed us,
gave us trust as we forced them down with pain,
the broken wings, the broken wounds, the broken minds that deny this,
bury it down in the well to forget lest they drown in sorrow

But somewhere, buried deeply in those cold remains
But somewhere, buried deeply, their pain’s our own

 

Rebel for Life

Rebel for Life © 2019 Matthew Checker

Every day we walk the way, along the path to Planet Freedom
Shine the light, burning bright, our courage growing ever stronger
Burst into smile and walk these miles with me, you know it’s our destiny
Let the earth recreate her green green lands so we can make reality of harmony

Oh yeah I’m a rebel, oh yeah I’m a rebel for life.
Oh yeah I’m a rebel, oh yeah.

Every day we turn away from oppression-hungry madness
We start a new, with a view of empowered meaningful existence
Take my hand and walk these miles with me, you know it was meant to be
Let the earth recreate her green green lands, like a cosmic sacred Symphony

Oh yeah I’m a rebel, oh yeah I’m a rebel for life
Oh yeah I’m a rebel, oh yeah I’m a rebel for life
For life I’m a rebel, oh yeah I’m a rebel for life
For life I’m a rebel, oh yeah I’m a rebel for life

Every soul who is getting bold come and join the call to earth assistance
We march along and sing our song and rise in peace to grow resistance
Take my hand and walk those miles with me and help all beings to be be free
Let the earth recreate her green green lands like a cosmic sacred Symphony

Oh yeah I’m a rebel, oh yeah I’m a rebel for life, Oh yeah I’m a rebel, oh yeah
Oh yeah I’m a rebel, oh yeah I’m a rebel for life
Oh yeah I’m a rebel, oh yeah I’m a rebel for life
For life I’m a rebel, oh yeah I’m a rebel for life, For life I’m a rebel, oh yeah I’m a rebel for life

Now or Never

NOW OR NEVER © 2019 Matthew Checker

On a rainy windy dawn, we gathered round let the spirit form

and strode forth to a place they’d claimed their own

we never knew if the tide would turn but in our hearts the fire did burn

and we stared the destruction in the eye

Around the world people standing up to corporate control, gonna break it up

the moment is now or never

On the bridges we sat in lines as the force that is meant to protect our kind

came at us and dragged our folk away

all the time we would party on because the spirit of love it has always won

and we can blast that old bad power away

Around the world people standing up to corporate control, gonna break it up

the moment is now or never

Around the world people waking up for love and to survive gonna rise up

the moment is now or never, sing together when moments are rough

Now or never, the moment is now

Now or never, the moment is now

We’ve had enough of your corporate power,

killing the Earth every minute, every hour

we’re done with your brainwashed strategies

and we will fight to free the common ground

that you took without asking those living around

to pollute rape and pillage from forest to sea

Around the world people standing up to corporate control, gonna break it up

the moment is now or never

Around the world people waking up for love and to survive gonna rise up

the moment is now or never

We’ve had enough …………

Around………………………
