Recruiting for Justice – Kelli-Marie Sellwood
I speak to help the people see, that basic rights for you and me
Must be in the people’s hands, not – corporates that don’t understand
That life on earth is too complex, for just a few, to choose what’s best
We’re not a class, or type, or thing, depending on the song they sing
I’ll decide, who I will be, your labels are not part of me.
Now we see just what they do, divide the masses, hide what’s true
But this cannot work anymore, there is a loophole in this war
They use time to grind us down, they stretch out hope, passion they drown
They know our system’s lack of time, ensures they can commit their crimes
For most are only getting by, don’t have the time to even try
To stand and fight for human rights, as working days move into nights!
But there are those that have the time, to stand up to these corporate crimes
And so, I must recruit those who, possess the time to spread what’s true
So, to the people, partly free, Help the needy, hear my plea
As we possess, the very tool, that allows these corporates that rule
To push the people to the ground, to stress us out and wear us down
So, give your time to help a cause!
speak up at bars and shopping malls
Educate, inform yourself, on housing scandals, public health
Privatisation underway, communities in disarray
On social cleansing, shrinking down, on corrupt councils in your town!
Join us and speak out for the poor, the vulnerable and many more!
Offer your help – please, if you can, for fairness is not in the plan
Of many councils, Co’s and Corps, that lie, and do divide our thoughts
Confusing, yes, it is indeed, and this is how they do succeed
Their constant drain on people’s time, confusing jargon on each line
keep it simple!
keep it true!
Housing’s a right for me and you
As is healthcare, healthy food, a lack of these brings sombre moods
These are basic human needs, and this, is why we must succeed!
How sad it is to see the few, that have the time to help undo
the unjust crimes this system breeds, only care for their own needs!
When families are crying out, ‘HELP US PLEASE!’ But still they doubt
That anyone will lend a hand, on this fake! and greedy land!
So, listen to what’s in your soul, do what is right and meet the goal.
To give the people what we need
Choose human rights!
Not human greed!
Homes sit empty everywhere, this crisis caused by the unfair
Development of social homes, by brainwashed corporate human clones!
With no regard for human life, they cause depression, pain and stifle
Then throw in section ‘106’ and believe that they have done their bit
But it is clear for most to see, this section is placed tactically
To seem as though, they’ve done there bit, but, in time the truth does hit
No residents around to see, the things built for community
They’re forced out by the corporate hand, as social cleansing sweeps the land
The homes that were built for the poor, are not for them now anymore
This greedy culture has to go, and changing seeds we all must sow…
Wake up please! The employees, of corporates causing such unease.
I understand it’s just your job, but help us, to reform this mob.
For if the corporate dream does win. All mankind will be locked in
The debated chains, that leave the few, to rule the masses, me and you.
Just because it’s legal, does not mean that it’s right,
this is why, as one the people need to stand and fight!
We can break our debated chains, free the people, start again!
Give rise to a united race!
of people true, and full of grace.
Where basic needs are owned by us!
And managed by those whom we trust
We’ll keep it local, keep it small, connected still to trade with all
A people that then understand, a complex web spreads through these lands
This is the way, that nature thrives, ensuring rich and diverse lives
Goodbye to the invasive weed, of corporates spreading fear and greed.
A world where cash won’t prove our worth
but how we treat, all life, on earth.
