444 featuring peter coyle
peter coyle / ronnie stone

Story

444 refers to an account fund set up by the Stasi in East Berlin before the wall came down...it was a propaganda tool to highlight the evils of the free and liberal west...this song is born out of the belief that human beings can stand together in adversity and overcome their differences...born out of the belief that democracy is the best political system we have...born out of the belief that when people work together with love and respect miracles can happen...democracy that involves women and men...rich and poor...the world is going through an enormous change...and in this tumult...the people will be fed all sorts of propaganda...to allow war...to allow subjugation...to allow persecution...all in the name of nationalism...all in the name of the global economy...all in the name of God or Allah...all in the name of denial...denial of the human being in all of us...denial of the basic human rights for all...our greatest gift to one another is to be human when the context and the political environment is encouraging us to be enemies to one another...our ancestors have suffered greatly so as we can develop democracy...we must cherish it dearly and not let it be devalued by those in power...we have our own mind and our own thoughts and we must not be led like sheep...in short this song is about democracy and human values of love and respect...

Lyrics

We can’t live in chains We can’t be imprisoned There’s just too much at stake Love is the thing that feeds us Above and beyond our fear We can’t do it alone We’ve got to stand Together Against the propaganda Losing your humanness is worse than death With no democratic oath we’ve nothing left Tell them no Tell them never will the lust for power end Tell them no Tell them we don’t follow anyone at all Men of war Men of money Men of mind control We don’t follow the headless beast of evil Indoctrination Indoctrination Indoctrination Losing your humanness is worse than death Nothing real in our hearts we’ve nothing left Tell them no Tell them never will the lust for power end Tell them no Tell them we don’t follow anyone at all Men of war Men of money Men of mind control Nothing will destroy the people’s soul all words peter coyle
