Inauguration Special: tapping into the energy source

"imaginations harnessed for a common purpose..."

"Moving forward using all my breath..."

I am only one mommy from Houston, TX,

but sometimes I have ideas,

About how to make normal things...

into something yummy!

Freedom is a very old idea...

Freedom...

is it being able to have all the new stuff you want?

No, that can't be it! *

I am only one mommy in Houston, TX,

...but I know what it takes to make a Revolution.

I saw it in Paris at the CPU/CPE protests in 2006.

The students rose up for better job contracts,

and everyone supported them.


...and it worked!

Now mother earth is at stake...

My friends and I...

We are good at making old things,

new again!

We are small,

but we have some ideas...

Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world thrashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace
I'll stop the world and melt with you
You've seen the difference and
It's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(You should know better)
Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
(You should see why)
Dropped in the state of imaginary grace
(You should know better)
I made a pilgrimage to save this human race
(You should see why)
Never comprehending a race that long gone by
(I'll stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(I'll stop the world)
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
(Let's stop the world)
There's nothing you and I won't do
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
The future's open wide
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)
I've seen some changes but it's getting better all the time
(Let's stop the world)
There's nothing you and I won't do
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
The future's open wide
hmmm hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
(Let's stop the world)
There's nothing you and I won't do
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you
(Let's stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you...
