For the past few years, perhaps due in some part to a vast change in perception on my part, I’ve been noticing more and more songs speaking directly to our situation here on Earth, in a truthful and refreshing way. As a result of the clearly-observable awakening happening across the globe, too, there’s been more and more artists coming out with work along the same vein. We’re going to start spotlighting songs we think do a good job of that in a piece called Revolution Songs.
In this installment, we’re featuring a song by thrash metal band Toxic Holocaust, called ‘International Conspiracy.’ This one might come off as a little abrasive to the ears for some, but we’re really trying to illustrate how widespread this awakening is. From metal bands, to hip hop artists and folk musicians, the world is most definitely waking up!
Prophets falsely claim the gift, the eye that sees it all
Harsh reality is crashing before you
Spreading the panic all hope has been lost
They feel what we stand for – fear all our strength
An International Conspiracy
Give away another right to ease your sleep at night
We come closer each day to a prison
You make a chance but the outcome’s the same
It’s tine to wake up – this is your warning
Privacy stripped away it’s time to act today
For the cowards who won’t stand behind us
Panic is leading to social unrest
They’re hiding their motive – total slavery.
If you’ve got a song you think we should spotlight, let us know!
