Revolution & the Artist

Sharing is caring!

Revolution and the artist go hand in hand. One cannot exist without the other. From street art to music, we are motivated and inspired to think outside the box, to organize and protest, to unite with each other and the planet.

Our latest documentary project (which is the continuation of the visual style and format created in the first Time is Art film) is centered around the power of music as a tool to uplift, motivate and wake people up. This time around, the artist and lyricist, Omboy Rome is our mirror to guide us through the process of self-transformation.

After many years of filming and envisioning the second film, we cut together a short promo to excite the artist inside of you. We have also launched a patreon so please become a patron and support this inspiring film for as little as $1 per month.

And if you haven’t found Jesus maybe you found Dr. John.  Start your new year off with his song “Revolution” which is a good example of how music reminds us of what’s really going on in the world. France is currently involved in a revolution to oust another fascist leader and of course the media is censoring their true message.  The question posed in this song and what we need to ask ourselves, is what will it take for us to revolt against such insane corruption (just a small example; the creation and sale of arms that are destroying families and our environment all over the world.)

“Revolution lyrics”

Blind eyes of justice, deaf ears of power
Dumb lose our money
Left us in a desperate hour
Economy
Driving me out of my sanity
Rebellious, Revolution
Is it the final solution?
Final Solution!Angels surrender, killed in their tracks
Babies, women raped
Leaders on their backs
Religious delusions
Stoned confusions
Prepare your Revolution
Is this the final solution?

The roots of man’s insanity
The truth of wars inhumanity
Let’s all just pray on it right now…

Brother the warpath
Is painted with liberty
Propaganda, hypocrisy
Have we lost our constitution?

Rebellious, revolution
Is this the final solution?
A rebellious revolution
Is this the final solution?

Of course you can’t talk about revolution and the artist without…

Gil Scott-Heron – The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

The first collaboration with Omboy Rome was inspired by the Standing Rock movement.

“Power” by Dream Circle feat. Omboy Rome

“Power” feat. Omboy Rome Lyrics

Only a fool would sell his soul for some power
leave it up to a few to forget about love
and believe in power
politrix is a system used against you
take your power
it’s the final hour
together as one Power

Attract what you expect
Reflect what you desire
Become what you respect
Mirror what you admire
At the expense of the human soul, mind and body
Materialism is above God, above God
all for the sake of economic security
You throw our people in cages made for dogs

Standing like a rock, like a rock
Standing like a rock, Standing like a rock
like a rock, Standing like a rock

This is our land, this is our right
This is our way of life,
This is our land, this is our right
This is our way of life,
Water is life
Water is life

Only a fool would sell his soul for some power
leave it up to a few to forget about love
and believe in power
politrix is a system used against you
take your power
it’s the final hour
together as one Power

We gotta empower
the power of love
the power from above
takes precedence
over presidents
We the true representatives
of planet earth
the people are through
with tryna make do
evolution over due what we gonna do
leave it up to a vote
or will we the people move as one
in order to form a more perfect union
in order to establish justice
we endure so we must insure
domestic tranquility
we must secure the blessings of liberty
if not for ourselves at least
for our posterity (water is life)

Only a fool would sell his soul for some power
leave it up to a few to forget about love
and believe in power
politrix is a system used against you
take your power
it’s the final hour
together as one Power

We’re a fusion of races
the heart is pure
not the color of our faces
Hashtag #NoJusticeNoPeace
we organize communities
to fight police brutality
and protect our children
from MKUltra
Google it and do your homework
go down that rabbit whole
things aren’t what the seem
CIA, NSA and FBI
might have some good guys on the inside
but if you investigate
they threaten your family
his last tweet said it was murder
not a suicide
now its time for everyone to wake up
and reclaim their true power
through love, through love

You follow orders and never question why (question why)
The money man robs you, he controls you, lies to you,
There’s no integrity, no humanity
