Reminiscent of a Dylan or Guthrie folk tune with its gentle music, this song has the most violent lyrics of the songs I've heard written specifically for occupy. Aimed at the metaphorical 1%, "And what you won’t share - Will be ripped from your hands - Your body destroyed -The way fire lands - Burning your homes"

Reminiscent of a Dylan or Guthrie folk tune with its gentle music, this song probably has the most violent lyrics of the songs I've heard written specifically for occupy. Aimed at the metaphorical 1%, "And what you won’t share - Will be ripped from your hands - Your body destroyed -The way fire lands - Burning your homes"

The Occupy movement is peaceful, so don't take the tune literally and get all wonky on me.
