about

I wrote this song after being date-raped in Venezuela. It is dedicated to all survivors-may we all find our voices, speak and sing!

lyrics

Roaring for a Revolution

The moon is a lion tonight
With her mane shining oh so bright
Roaring roaring for a revolution
to split the darkness with her teeth
Roaring roaring for a revolution
so she can speak

You are weeping in your bed
The only roar you hear is in your head
your house burned down you lost it all
a spring a summer then a fall
It's hard to know what ashes bring
The resignation on the wind
but then you hear something
rustling in the night
something alive and with a will to fight

Roaring roaring for a revolution
to split the darkness with her teeth
Roaring roaring for a revolution
so she can speak

Remember the lion when you die
When your tears are quiet inside
Remember the bracing flick of her tail
That breaks the bars of any jail
Remember that quicksand disappears
When the tide deafens your fears
Remember you are the moon
leading your own way to your own tune

Roaring roaring for a revolution
to split the darkness with her teeth
Roaring roaring for a revolution
so she, so we, so all of can speak
So we can speak, so we can speak
So we can sing
