Info to accompany interview here -

Recorded live with one guitar overdub, inspired by the global issue of the earth's need for renewable energy, discussed by Paul Richmond (Zest) in an interview with Greg Allen, I guess when you really start thinking about the world it's like ripples on a pond and war and destruction of any kind goes hand in hand with ripping up rainforests to make more junk mail.

****Peace Wins The Election****

I'm holdin' the post
N' I'm runnin' for freedom
No political road, no
Just a hunch of a feelin'
Too old is the war
Too young our redemption
Too sorry the state of the world
N' it's too sorry to mention

Where there were those that would stand up n' count
Count themselves in for the haul
Now only rivers of money are washed
By the hands that fight to own more

I'm nobody's choice
N' I'm nobody's monkey
But I have a voice
And I know you don't want me
I'll say what I will
N' I'll sing with conviction
There's a flag on the hill
'Peace wins the Election'

Where there were those that would stand up n' count
Count themselves in for the haul
Now only rivers of money are washed
By the hands that fight to own more

I won't sit on the fence
I won't call for no plannin'
This world should be friends
N' stand up for the planet
I won't tire of the toil
I won't swing on the glory
Between humans n' soil
There's a beautiful story

Where there were those that would stand up n' count
Count themselves in for the haul
Now only rivers of money are washed
By the hands that fight to own more
Where there were those that would stand up n' count
Count themselves in for the haul
Now only rivers of money are washed
By the hands that fight to own more
Oh we're in for the long haul
Pull up a chair
We're in for the long haul
We all gotta pull
We're in for the long haul yeah
Peace wins the election...

Outstanding lyrics...and I like your politics!! Rock used to be the music of rebellion. It's good to see it still is.
