Amos Matsick Jack Brown is a fellow Bernie Sanders campaign activist who wrote this song about the Occupy Wall Street movement. On a frigid day in February we met at Zuccotti Park in Manhattan and he told me about his experience with the protest and then we talked about political activism past, present and future. I am encouraging Jack to write new music and create new art for this campaign.

lyrics

IT TAKES LOVE
(love in action)
Down in the concrete canyon
home of the Bull and the Bear.
Captain rides a stallion.
People stop and stare.
He represents the rule of law
not always black and white.
Sometimes there's a fatal flaw
confusing wrong and right.

CH It takes loves to move a mountain
Love to swim the sea.
It takes love to heal the world
and build community.
It takes love,love,love,love,love.
It takes love,love,love,love,love.

In a park between two rivers
there's a shot heard round the world.
People stand and deliver
Stars and stripes unfurled.
Speaking out for freedom.
Saying fair is fair.
No one should go hungry.
Everyone deserves a share.

CH & Break

Get out and feel the feeling
Get out and feel the beat.
No more double dealing
we're occupying Wall Street.
All across the USA
from Europe to the Arab Spring
Australia to the Frisco Bay
the Liberty Bell rings.

Ch and out.
