This track was co-written in conjunction with Jack Spriko for his podcast "The Survival Podcast". The song describes how we are responsible for our own freedom. We can create our own revolution through becoming more self-sufficient, independent, and building networks of like-minded people. The goal is to build a better life if things get tough....or even if they don't.


you pull yourself up
But they keep ...bringin you down
Are they gonna bail you out?
Or just, run you around
They said you should have a

It’s the ‘merican way
Dollar down, a dollar a month
And you’ll never have to pay

But there’s a better way to do this
Let me show you a better way

You don't have to be,
another face In the crowd,
You don't have to live the way they
want you to,
Make your own way,
and the others will follow
The revolution is you

It’s in our food these days,
you know it’s on our TV,
Sometimes we forget that we
are what we eat
I don’t know the answer,
it’s like there’s nothin’ I can do
It’s the price we pay, I guess,
if we follow all the rules


Someday day we’ll realize
our children just can’t pay,
And nobody up there cares,
they’re livin’ for toda......yyyyy
