Wishlist / Remixes
« on: January 01, 2012, 02:32:26 PM »
I'd love people to start doing some completely different-styled remixes of the song, too.

Maybe there's already enough raw material in the first rough mix to get going on a dubstep remix or a minimal techno version or... whatever style you are inclined towards.

Wishlist / New Verses
« on: January 01, 2012, 02:30:24 PM »
There are a bunch of other important subjects that I haven't touched on in the verses and one chorus that I've recorded so far. In the lyrics forum (http://the99percentsong.org/index.php?board=3.0) I'll be discussing some of the other lines I have floating around that could be the seed to get something going, but it can come out of thin air, too, so if you're a lyricist, please chime in.

Wishlist / Other Rappers

If you or anyone you know can rap, I'd love to get some other voices doing some of the verses and if you wanna write your own verse - even better!

If you only feel comfortable doing backing vocals, that's great, too.

Here is the first rough mix. Everything is a placeholder right now just to get the ball rolling.

Lyrics / Lyrics 2011/12/30
« on: December 30, 2011, 07:17:39 PM »
The rich get richer and the poor get screwed
While bankers bring home billions, teachers barely bring home food
The middle class shrinks; their investments run dry
And I for one am wondering why
While the rich get richer the poor don't rise up
We just keep on working to line the pockets of the corrupt
We just keep believing one day we might be rich, too
But it's never gonna happen to someone honest like me or you

The system is broken, let's all gather in the open
Link arms people and occupy
We all know the truth; we've all seen the truth
Speak up people let me hear you cry:

We are the 99 percent
We know where all the money went
We are the 99 percent
And we're coming for every singe cent

The Arab Spring has inspired me
But it's not just the oppressed that deserve to be free
And it's not just the middle east where they stifle free speech
And where police use violence against peaceful protest
Exactly the same tactics in UC Berkley as in Damascus
Mace in the face and a nightstick to the head
The protestors message is effectively suppressed
But it reminds the population of the price of dissent
See how they closed down all the occupy camps
The way they treat Bradley Manning and Julian Assange
Why do you think they're so afraid of wiki leaks?
They must have even deeper darker secrets to keep
We're not victims of a totalitarian regime
We're just cogs in a giant money making machine
That is built and run exclusively for the benefit
Of a small gang of rich white men we call the one percent

We are the 99 percent
We know where all the money went
We are the 99 percent
And we're coming for every singe cent

We are the 99 percent
We know where all the money went
We are the 99 percent
And we're coming for every singe cent

There are crooked politicians in the pockets of the banks
Pushing through new legislation just by way of saying thanks
For the votes that were bought with the money that was made
By the bankers themselves when the laws got changed

Far too few people control far too much media
We need more public access and more Wikipedia
We need to stop buying so much of our news
From those with a vested interest in shaping our views

The system is broken, let's all gather in the open
Link arms people and occupy
We all know the truth; we've all seen the truth
Speak up people let me hear you cry:

We are the 99 percent
We know where all the money went
We are the 99 percent
And we're coming for every cent

We are the 99 percent
We know where all the money went
We are the 99 percent
And we're coming for every cent
