Lyrics

All the People

Written By: Angelina Birney

All the people
All the people in the world
All the people
All the people in the world

Where does your heart reside?
Have you lost it in your pride?
The blood of children is everywhere
Well, it's not here. It's over there

We like to hear the battle cry
The chant of war calls us to die
We want to fight and make a stand
Let's all fight -- Fight for the
brotherhood of man

All the people
All the people in the world
All the people
All the people in the world

The seeds of hatred have been sown
The force of war has fully grown
Frightened eyes from shadows peer
While men with guns keep drawing near

We turn the channel so we won't know
Don't want truth in our reality show
If they ask you to fight and join the marching band
Show up and fight -- Fight for the brotherhood of man

All the people
all the people
All the people in the world
All the people
all the people
All the people in the world

We all look up to the sky
We all suffer and we cry

Raise the lantern - dispel your fear
Ring the bell so you might hear
When told to fight on their command
Tell them you'll fight -- Fight for the brotherhood of man

All the people
All the people
All the people in the world
All the people
All the people
Raise the lantern - dispel your fear
All the people
All the people
Ring the bell so you might hear

All the people
All the people in the world
All the people
All the people in the world
All the people
All the people in the world
All the people
All the people in the world!

Raising Cain

Written By: Angelina Birney

Raising cain
Oh, I'm raising cain
I am able
and I'm cain.

Call me brother
Call me sister
I go by any name

Oh, I am able
and I'm raising cain

It's been too long
Time to end the pain
'cause I am able
and I'm raising cain.

Well the skies they rumble
and the clouds flash light
Now, we all fall, we stumble
and we're bound to fight
But the spirit's quickening
and we must unite

Oh, I am able
and I'm raising cain

I see the golden dome
I hear the wailing wall
We need a higher mind
That can accept it all
we can accept it all

Here's the olive tree
and here's the white dove
I've got the branch of peace
I've got the heart of love
I've got the heart of love

For I am able
and there's no one to blame
Oh, I am Abel
and I've forgiven Cain

Yes, I am able
I am able
I've got the heart of love

For I am able
and there's no one to blame
Oh, I am Abel
and I've forgiven Cain

Oh, I am able
I am able
Oh, I am able
and I'm raising cain!

Pure Vision

Written By: Angelina Birney

Clear sky overhead
Where is the pure land
that we were promised?
We praise the armies
We mourn the dead
There's more here than what meets the eye
Look deeper, look further, look far ahead
Look up to the opening sky

For pure vision is all we need
to till the soil, to plant the seed
Pure vision is our creation
for woman, for man, for every nation
to live together in the new Jerusalem.

When dark thoughts obscure your light
When ignorant minds put up a hard fight
Just keep on believing in your own sight
Though you're alone in the desert,
it's warm and it's bright
The stars in the heavens,
they shed their own light

CHORUS (1x)

We fight for the land
We struggle and die
Why don't we ask ourselves why?

We stand on the desert
We stand on the shore
We open our eyes
We open the door
to

Pure vision. It's our creation
for woman, for man, for every nation

For pure vision is all we need
to till the soil, to plant the seed
Pure vision, it's our creation
for woman, for man, for every nation
to live together in the new Jerusalem

New world has come
The new Jerusalem
New world has come. The new Jerusalem (repeat line)...
