One Too Many

The Occupy Wall Street mission.

Also I wrote a new song that was definitely inspired by the movement.  Here’s the lyrics (so far, they could change a bit):

One Too Many

All around the world one day
One too many senseless things
Raging wars, corporate greed
Homelessness, poverty

Brought too many to their knees

And one fine day

One too many prayers were prayed
One too many answers came
One too many chose to feed
The change they longed to see

One too many took a stand
One too many held their hand
One too many felt a call
To build a better world for all

And one fine day

One too many tipped the scales
All around the world until
One too many fantasies
Morphed into reality

Just like Martin Luther King
One too many dreamed a dream
One too many felt a call
To build a better world for all

And Earth was quite the place to be
Brimming with vitality
When one too many formed the “we”
That changed the course of history

One fine day
