Music for the Evolution of Consciousness

For the last two years, the Harper government has done everything it could to wreck the world’s efforts to fix climate change. With Harper close to winning a majority government, Canadians are coming together across party lines to save the planet and vote for the candidate in their riding that is most likely to defeat the Conservative. Take the pledge below to join the effort!

To inspire our campaign, a fantastic group of top Canadian artists have come together to create the Avaaz Stop Harper anthem “You Have a Choice”. Artists include K-OS, Ed from Barenaked Ladies, Sarah Harmer, Hawksley Workman, Jason Collett from Broken Social Scene and many more!

Oh

Now the lights have gone to half-lit
And we might lose the planet
Find the wonder to believe
That you’ve got some power up your sleeve

And you’ll find yourself wondering
Could you even change anything
Before the world comes crashing down
Not too late, turn it around

And you know you have a choice
If you don’t then it’s already happened
Only takes one moment, rejoyce
If you don’t then it’s gone like the wind

You can feel it
Don’t let them steal it
Once its a deal
We just can’t appeal it
In an instant
Like an infant
We’re infactuated with the intent
Like minded
We can find it
Common ground where were all aligned at
We can change things
For the better
Not just dressing it up with a sweater

So remember winters
With the changing seasons
And the caring people
With their loving reasons
What is simply lovely
What never ceases to touch me
Its what’s going away
Its what’s going away

And you know you have a choice
If you don’t then it’s already happened
Only takes one moment, rejoyce
If you don’t then it’s gone like the wind

Tell the prime minister
We just can’t afford
There’s no room to breathe here
We ain’t got no more
And the wealth gives an addiction
To those who suffer the affliction
Of his bleech white teeth

And you know you have a choice
If you don’t then it’s already happened
Only takes one moment, rejoyce
If you don’t then it’s gone like the wind
