see to get involved


A hot wind is blowing
the seeds we are sowing
but what are growing
that’s watered with blood

Lessons we don’t learn
So how can the tide turn?
in a sea

Oceans of hatred
pulling us down in your war time
it’s like a rip tide
red tide

rankles the womb of our humanity
bone yard parade

faithless charade
of the wrong minds
minds without reason, wisdom, or grace
and yet power

eyes full of fear
dead light
it’s tearing us all into
leading you, bleeding you,
and the red tide is also blue.

herein the red tide is drowning you

warm tears are falling
our conscience is calling
the clock hands keep crawling
to the time we’ll see change

(when we’ll)

pray to the peace sign
throw out a lifeline
in this sea

there’ll be no hatred
pulling us down in your wartime
it’s like a rip tide
red tide

rankles the womb of our humanity
your bone yard parade

baseless tirade
of the wrong minds
minds without reason
will soon have to face
a new power

eyes wide and clear
as midnight
will deafen their ears to you
vest no more fear in you

and the red tide will roll in blue

download instructions

    If you have QuickTime Pro, you can select to save the MP3 from the pop up menu.

    You may be able to directly download the MP3 through this link: download now. If the browser reports that it doesn’t know the MIME type, go ahead and download it — you will get the full MP3. If the browser brings up QuickTime, then try the next step.

    As a final method, we have instructed your browser to keep a copy of the MP3 in its cache. That copy will be there only as long as this web page is loaded. Wait until the full song has downloaded to your browser, then go into the browser cache and search for the song (on a Macintosh, the browser cache will be located in the System Folder --> Preferences --> Netscape Users --> your user name --> Cache ƒ). This will only work for Netscape Communicator or Navigator; Microsoft Internet Explorer uses a proprietary anti-social cache that doesn’t allow direct user access) The song will be listed under a strange name (something like cache416991.mp3) — locate it by searching for something with an MP3 file extension. Now, copy (not move) the file from the cache to the desktop (soon after you close this web page, the copy in the cache will be removed) and rename it something meaningful like torch.mp3.
