lyrics

we are witnesses to wildly moving times
experiences strong and not easily torn apart
what is happening here and now
in front of us, and what is to follow
is a time, are times, our times
in which we operate

stop standing here so outrageously empty
move, move
you are not a tree
you are not an herb garden
i am moving, we will move (now)
we will be a movement
i am moving, we will move (now)
we will be a movement

we are trumpet, tuba, tenor
bass bass baby
soprano, organ, heavy munition
we are verse, bridge, and chorus
verse, bridge, and chorus
verse, bridge, and chorus
we're all of it.

don't be a retreat
don't be a concern
don't be a reserve
don't be a backup
keep your eyes open

OK: verse, main verse, main demands:
we demand the vital humanity of any human
in particular of any human who writes
in particular in this upside down world we make our home
a world unsuitable for humanity
in these dark times, in this dark world (or both)
everyone cares only about their own:
their own personal, private freedom
their own individual interests
their retreat
their ignorance
in this dark, steaming hot world
where humanity has become politically irrelevant
we demand
again and again
verse, main verse, main demands:

WE DARE YOU (truth or dare? both! always!)
truth or dare is always a REQUEST
a demand, a wish, much more: a desire
we dare you to our 3 standards
our minimum standards:
the bottom, the base, the heartbeat
the bottom, the base, the heartbeat
the bottom, the base, the heartbeat
the bottom, the base, the heartbeat

and we write
and we say:

HERZ HERDE ERDE
HEART HERD EARTH
