Buffy St Marie – Power in the Blood – Buffy’s new album has all her old power

buffy_sainte-marie

Buffy has always been a positive force. Her songs about Native Americans, the genocide and her heritage, hit right in the heart. She is a major force.

This new albums pulls no punches. She aims at the bankers and tycoons, the government and policies that are creating war, exploitation, environmental destruction and suffering. The world is being polluted and raped for profit. The establishment are lining their pockets and selling our future.

There is power in the blood. We have to speak out. There are injustices to fight. There are issues to address. There are animals in need of protection. There’s a world that needs caring for.

Buffy shows that the older generation still has it. She’s pointing the way! Standing up for what’s right! More power to her!

Power In The Blood

GMO GMO has got to go
Power in the blood Power in the blood

No time for spin-doctors’ medicine
Corporation government selling me some cover-up
Weaponizing pesticides; poison in my groceries
Nothing but another drug, a license they can buy and sell

I don’t mind dying
Well I don’t mind dying
I don’t mind dying
But when that call it comes I will say no no no to war

No time for backhanded compliments
From television anchor men desperate for an incident
Real estate assassins exploiting our predicament
Everything depends upon it being in their interests

No I don’t mind dying
I don’t mind dying
I don’t mind dying
When that call it comes, I will say no no no to war

There is power in the blood, justice in the soul
When that call it comes, I will say no no no to war
Power in the blood, justice in the soul
When that call it comes I will say no no no to war

There’s military interest, GMOs in paradise
bio-weapons high up on the call sheet
Young soldiers driving tanks
but old thieves they drive the banks
and you never see a uniform on Wall Street

There is power in the blood

I don’t mind dying
I don’t mind the dying
I don’t mind dying
When that call it comes I will say no no no to war
