lyrics

OF THE PEOPLE
lyrics © Mojdeh Stoakley

Every land has a language
That language has a taste
Building every sentence savory
Salt and lime
The cadence makes the flavor rich

Every country has a melody
that's made of faces.
Filling notes,
the passages are folk.
The folk make the stories
that begin with grass and end with war!
The folk make our history
Our history, our history is torn!

The best we can do,
make light of history,
take pride in our legacy,
celebrate each brushstroke
of culture!

A nation is no more than genre,
a country no more than cuisine,
all is music, all hearts hunger,
and all folk be hopeful of imminent unity!
