‘We are’ (algo de optimismo, que falta hace)

We are

We are the dawn’s electric rise
A gathering of consciousness creating
We are an overwhelming tide
Of heat and light and sound to break the chain

Time to take the keys back to our kingdom
It is time to move the rules to fairer ground
Equality and justice so the masses can breathe free again
The workers and the players have to take this world and turn it all around

We are the dawn’s electric rise
A gallery of consciousness creating
We are an overwhelming tide
Of reason and rights endowed to change the game

And to those who think that nothing ever happens
When peaceful forces speak the truth to power
Watch the water carving through the mountain’s heart of stone
How simple winds increase until they topple every tower

And we love to see you
Stepping up across the lands
And we love to be with you
As you make your righteous stand

And we love to hear you
Shouting out your desires
And we love to cheer you
As you join the expanding choir

We are the dawn’s electric rise
A galaxy of consciousness creating
We are an overwhelming tide
The heat and light and sound they can’t contain

New Party System propone este himno para el movimiento Occupy Wall Street y por extensión, como muestran las imágenes, para todos aquellos que, entre tantas otras cuestiones, se niegan a vender el estado del bienestar a precio de saldo. Está claro que Milton Friedman no va revolverse en su tumba y que sus discípulos están en otros asuntos -esos que aparecen al comienzo del clip dirigido por Toni Comas-, lo cual no impide que la canción -escrita por David First (The Notekillers) e interpretada entre otros por Kyp Malone (TV On The Radio)- insufle ánimo a nuestros corazones (y en especial al de mi compañera Tamara Velázquez: va por ti).
