Update: Based on feedback from ya’ll, I remixed myself with the bass and kick turned way up, lead vocal turned up and some of the synth parts turn up as well. Thanks for pushing me!

I was inspired by Kara’s Power to Strike and thought I might add some back vocals to it — and then that idea blurred with one that came via spinningmerkaba’s Earthmoves sample pak that reminded me of Earth Intruders by Bjork. Not sure how I ended up here (and I’m sure it could use a remix or remaster!).

I imagine all of us dancing around the trunk of a huge gnarled tree ( Lothlorien style), hacking with shovels and axes.

Thanks for listening.

We are Free (at the Root)

We’ve been hacking at the branches
You’ve been stealing all the loot
Now we are marching for the changes
That are striking at the root

You’re going down (going down)
This is your demise (karma decides)
You’ll finally drown (set right somehow)
On your sea of lies (no, no more)

Strike the root of this tree
It’s falling soon making a clearing
Strike the root it’s time to sing
Calling to you and me

No way back now (no way back now)
Trapped by your faults (it’s your fault!)
And if we turn around (turn back around)
Disintegrate to salt (like Lot’s wife)

Strike the root of this tree
It’s falling soon making a clearing
Strike the root we’re unplugging
Calling to you and me

We’ve been hacking at the branches
You’ve been stealing all the loot
Now we are marching for the changes
That are striking at the root

Twisting, swaying, twisting, dancing
Twisting, shaking, twisting, dancing

“There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil
To one who is striking at the root.”
At the root, at the root, at the root.

Strike the root of this tree
It’s falling soon making a clearing
Strike the root it’s time to sing
Calling to you and me

Strike the root of this tree
It’s falling soon making a clearing
Strike the root we’re unplugging
Calling to you and me

Strike the root of this tree
It’s falling soon making a clearing
Strike the root we are free
Calling to you and me

Twisting, swaying, twisting, dancing
Twisting, shaking, twisting, dancing
(at the root we are free)
Twisting, swaying, twisting, dancing
Twisting, shaking, twisting, dancing
(at the root we are free)
Dancing (at the root we are free)
Dancing
We are free
