Feb. 26, 2008 marked the release of The Solidarity EP. Featuring three songs inspired by issues of social injustice and the reality and consequences of the fact that our own actions play a part in creating and maintaining many of those same systems of injustice in our world. Believing that we must choose to live above ignorance and apathy, these songs aim to be an encouragement to embrace the chance we have to effect a positive change in the lives of those whom we share this planet with. Be convicted with me, be affected, be encouraged. You can now order the EP at http://www.myspace.com/iknowiamaugust. And huge thanks to Kirsten Gorton for lending her voice.
don’t worry child
your name won’t be forgotten
it’s written down in his book of life
don’t worry mom
she’s not your only daughter
a different town where her heart falls out
how can you see them and not let it stir within you?
it’s our systems which have broken them
all of our wants, all of our needs
it’s the poor who pay the price
for all our lusts and our greed
