While this song has been around since 2006, it seems perfect for an "occupy" song. Ben Harper performing "Better Way."

i'm a living sunset
lightning in my bones
push me to the edge
but my will is stone

fools will be fools
and wise will be wise
but i will look this world
straight in the eyes

what good is a man
who won't take a stand
what good is a cynic
with no better plan

(hope these words feel pleasant
as they rest upon your ears)

reality is sharp
it cuts at me like a knife
everyone i know
is in the fight of their life

take your face out of your hands
and clear your eyes
you have a right to your dreams
and don't be denied

i believe in a better way

Performers:
Ben Harper: Weissenborn, Vocals, Bass, Drums, Percussion, Keys David Lindley: Tambura
