Story

This was the last song I wrote while living in Oregon before moving to California. It was a time when everyone was getting into crystals and channelers. My friends at work were putting crystals on their tips trays to get better tips. I somehow felt they missed the point . I think the second verse really addresses my feeling on this...The song was born  in kind of a spoof on the new age movement. With an acceptance of most everyone, my own philosophies emerge...After I recorded it Karie, she played for her friend and musician Kenny Susan...He threw on a bass track then and there...the song built out from that point. I used to call it my token country song because it has that feel although I would be surprised to hear a country song about the new age movement.

WE ARE THE CHANGES

                                      By Kahish © 1990-present

 

IT’S A NEW AGE REALITY AND IT’S ON THE MOVE                                               G C

IT YOU AREN’T A NEW AGE THINKER THEN YOU’RE NOT IN THE GROOVE     D  C  G

YOU’VE GOT POSITIVE THINKING AND YOUR PIE IN THE SKY                              G   C

YOU’RE RESPONSIBLE FOR CREATING WHAT’S IN YOUR MIND’S EYE              D  C   G

WE ARE THE CHANGES, WE’VE GOT THE CHANGES,           C   D   C   G  (X2)

WE SEE CHANGES EVERYDAY                                        

WE ARE THE CHANGES, WE’VE GOT THE CHANGES,

THINGS CHANGE EVERYDAY

AMULETS ON THE BUREAU, CRYSTALS ON THE SILL

THEY PROTECT YOU FROM YOUR TROUBLES,

BUT YOU STILL GET THE BILL

IT’S THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE TO ENVISION YOUR FATE                    

WHILE YOU LOVE EVERYBODY, THERE’S ALWAYS SOMEONE YOU HATE

 

DON’T GET ME WRONG NO CRITICISM ON MY PART

I LOVE EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU AND THAT COMES FROM MY HEART

BUT AS A UNIT IN SOCIETY, WE GET CARRIED AWAY

EVERYTIME WE’RE TIRED OF THINKING THE SAME THINGS EVERYDAY

 

WE CHANGE IDEAS AND STYLES JUST TO STAND OUT FAR ABOVE

YOU’RE AVERAGE JOE BLOW STUFFY PUFF, THE ONE YOU’D RATHER SNUB

WHILE MAKING PROFOUND STATEMENTS WITH OUR CLOTHES AND WITH OUR HAIR, WE ESCAPE ORIGINAL CONCEPT THAT HAVE SEEDED THESE COMEDY SHOWS

 

WHAT IS A FARSE TO SOME IS REAL TO FOLKS THAT ARE NOT NUTS

THE CRAZY ONES ARE THE ONES ENRAGED OVER THOSE WHO HAVE THE GUTS TO STAND UP AND STAND OUT, SPEAK ABOUT WHAT IS RIGHT

THE MORE SOME LIVE THE NATURAL LAWS THE RIGHTEOUS GET UPTIGHT

 

WE MAKE OUR OWN REALITY WHETHER GOD WAS THERE OR NOT

VISIONS CAME FORTH TO PROTECT US FROM THE VILLIANS WHO NEVER GOT CAUGHT

SO IT IS A GOOD THING THAT WE ARE THINKING POSITIVE FOR TIMES THAT ARE AHEAD

BECAUSE IT IS KIND OF HARD TO KEEP YOU SMILE~IF YOU LOSE YOUR HEAD!
