Four Women

Published October 5, 2022 by tindertender

And the original:

My skin is black
My arms are long
My hair is woolly
My back is strong
Strong enough to take the pain
Inflicted again and again
What do they call me?
My name is Aunt Sarah
My name is Aunt Sarah, Aunt Sarah

My skin is yellow
My hair is long
Between two worlds
I do belong
My father was rich and white
He forced my mother late one night
What do they call me?
My name is Saffronia
My name is Saffronia

My skin is tan
My hair is fine
My hips invite you
My mouth like wine
Whose little girl am I?
Anyone who has money to buy
What do they call me?
My name is Sweet Thing
My name is Sweet Thing

My skin is brown
My manner is tough
I’ll kill the first mother I see
My life has been rough
I’m awfully bitter these days
‘Cause my parents were slaves
What do they call me?
My name is Peaches

Let It Go ~ Mantra

Published September 19, 2022 by tindertender

All the old programming

All the habitual patterns that no longer serve the higher interest

All the relationships that seem to gravitate toward the hurtful and negative … words, energies and actions

All the chaos and drama

All the old expectations

All the old agreements no longer fueling higher interests and dreams

All the dark thoughts, keeping you stagnated in lower vibration

Examine your life, and release all things not utilized

In their place, pour in Love, Kindness and Compassion

Respectfully

With Honor and integrity

With Morality

For Self

And for others

Be good to You

Heal

One More Try

Published September 14, 2022 by tindertender

Last time people began to come together, they drafted the men for a needless war (https://www.britannica.com/event/Vietnam-War) effectively robbing the joy being birthed in their hearts.

Will the people allow it again?

Look over yonder
What do you see?
The sun is a-rising
Most definitely

A new day is coming (ooh, ooh)
People are changing
Ain’t it beautiful? (Ooh, ooh)
Crystal blue persuasion

Better get ready to see the light
Love, love is the answer (ooh, ooh)
And that’s all right

So don’t you give up now (ooh, ooh)
So easy to find
Just look to your soul (your soul)
And open your mind

Crystal blue persuasion, hmm, hmm
It’s a new vibration
Crystal blue persuasion
Crystal
Blue persuasion

Maybe tomorrow
When he looks down
On every green field (ooh, ooh)
And every town
All of his children
And every nation
There’ll be peace and good brotherhood

Crystal blue persuasion, yeah
Crystal blue persuasion, aah-aah
Crystal blue persuasion, aah-aah
(Crystal blue persuasion, aah-aah)

Revolution

Published August 23, 2022 by tindertender

Take back your feet, take back your hands.
Take back your words, take back your lands.
Take back your heart, take back your pride.
Don’t got to run, don’t got to hide.
Revolution.

So tell me family now what do you think
Watch it all go down the great big sink.
Watch how the scum it rises to the top.
Don’t you wonder when it’s all gonna stop?
Sometimes I wonder how we do sleep,
Serving the dodgy companies we keep.
All kicking and scrounging for the very first place
Dictionary definition of a rat race.
Pay off those losers we elect to lead,
Stealing from the mouths that we’re meant to feed.
Enslaving the very clothes upon my back,
I feel the sting but I hear no crack, no crack, I’m saying

Running through the fire, running through the flame,
Running through the hatred, pushing through the blame,
Running through the hopelessness and shame,
Revolution already underway.

Big Heavy Pirates man digging those holes,
Messing with something that they can’t control.
Tresspassing lands where they don’t belong,
All I hear is screaming where there once were songs.
I got my brothers there fighting those wars,
Fighting over scraps and scraping their souls.
Under a blanket of a fire and pride
That can’t keep us warm for the cold inside,
Inside, I’m saying

Running through the fire, running through the flame,
Running through the hatred, pushing through the blame,
Running through the hopelessness and shame,
Revolution already underway.

So tell me when you think we’re gonna rise?
Wake from this slumber wipe the tears from our eyes?
Yes from this nightmare yes I must now wake,
Open my fist my destiny I take!
Good people sick and tired of being pushed around,
We call them kings but I see no crown.
Tell me when you think we’ll just stand up,
Say enough is enough is enough, enough I’m saying

Running through the fire, running through the flame,
Running through the hatred, pushing through the blame,
Running through the hopelessness and shame,
Revolution already underway.

Take back your feet, take back your hands.
Take back your words, take back your lands.
Take back your heart, take back your pride.
Don’t got to run, don’t got to hide.
Revolution.

May the Force Be With You

Published August 20, 2022 by tindertender

Power, power, into my world, yeah
Into my world
There’s this power that pulls us closer
Deeper in love
There’s this power that pulls us like magic
And may the force that be with us forever
Be right here to guide us
Your sensitivity is very sensitive to mine
Come into my world
Welcome to my world
Come into my world
Welcome to my world
To rhythms of visions
We dance to the touch of…
In front of each echo
Alongside the rainbow there’s magic
Into my world
There’s this power that pulls us closer
Deeper in love
There’s this power that pulls us like magic
And may the force that be with us forever
Be right here to guide us
Your sensitivity is very sensitive to mine
Come into my world
Welcome to my world
Come into my world
Welcome to my world
Come into my world
Come into my world
Come into my world
Welcome to my world
Welcome to my world
It’s a lovely one
Welcome to my world…

There’s “Fire” In Their Eyes Alright

Published August 14, 2022 by tindertender

They told him, “Don’t you ever come around here”
“Don’t wanna see your face, you better disappear”
The fire’s in their eyes and their words are really clear
So beat it, just beat it

You better run, you better do what you can
Don’t wanna see no blood, don’t be a macho man
You wanna be tough, better do what you can
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it (beat it)
Just beat it (beat it)
Just beat it (beat it)
Just beat it (beat it, uh)

They’re out to get you, better leave while you can
Don’t wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man
You wanna stay alive, better do what you can
So beat it, just beat it

You have to show them that you’re really not scared
You’re playin’ with your life, this ain’t no truth or dare
They’ll kick you, then they’ll beat you
Then they’ll tell you it’s fair
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it (beat it, beat it, beat it)
Beat it (beat it, beat it)

Beat it (beat it, beat it)
Beat it (beat it, beat it)

Beat it (beat it, beat it)

Beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right (who’s right)

Just beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated (no one)
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated (oh, no)
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)

Savage Daughter

Published June 14, 2022 by tindertender

Chorus:
I am my mother’s savage daughter,
the one who runs barefoot cursing sharp stones.
I am my mother’s savage daughter,
I will not cut my hair, I will not lower my voice.

My mother’s child is a savage,
She looks for her omens in the colors of stones,
In the faces of cats, in the fall of feathers,
In the dancing of fire and the curve of old bones.

(Chorus)

My mother’s child dances in darkness,
She sings heathen songs by the light of the moon,
And watches the stars and renames the planets,
And dreams she can reach them with a song and a broom.

(Chorus)

My mother’s child curses too loud and too often,
My mother’s child laughs too hard and too long,
And howls at the moon and sleeps in ditches,
And clumsily raises her voice in this song.

(Chorus)

Now we all are brought forth out of darkness and water,
Brought into this world through blood and through pain,
And deep in our bones, the old songs are wakening,
So sing them with voices of thunder and rain.

(Chorus x3)
We are our mother’s savage daughters,
The ones who run barefoot cursing sharp stones.
We are our mother’s savage daughters,
We will not cut our hair, We will not lower our voice
