Self Revolution

I just noticed something as I was listening to some of my music earlier this afternoon.
There is a band I listen to on a daily basis called 'Killswitch Engage'. They are a Massachusetts based Metalcore band that has been around since the early 2000's. They are mostly known for writing lyrics with a positive/inspirational spin instead of the usual doom and gloom you get with the likes of that genre.

As I mentioned before, I was listening to them earlier and something started scratching at my brain. It was one particular song of theirs called, 'Self Revolution' that began to claw at my brain.
As I skimmed over the lyrics it became clear.

If you want to listen to the music

Here are the lyrics...

Self Revolution
by Killswitch Engage

I can't comprehend society's movement
The regression of human existence
This is the quest of life
Fulfill your destiny
Slow down

Slow down this fast paced world
And you will see past the illusion

Breaking the foundation
Collapse the control
Building a revolution to heal nations
It starts within you

Slow down this fast paced world
And you will see past the illusion

Breaking the foundation
Collapse the control
Building a revolution to heal nations
It starts within you

In this search for I & I the truth is always deep inside
(reversal of oneself finding the truth)

This is the quest of life
We must find the strength
This is the quest of life
We must find the strength
for a new movement

Slow down this fast paced world and you will see
the revolution
For a new movement

This song was released back in 2002.
I didn't know about Ron Paul til one of my life long friends told me about him about 3-4 years back. He is a military vet from the Iraq war and supports Ron Paul. He would always tell me that Ron Paul's message was the answer to our problems with this nation. He never got in to too much detail, in fact, he told me to do my own research.

Since then, to me, has been my own "self revolution".

So I researched Dr. Paul, and the more I researched, the more I understood what he was saying. The more I understood what he was saying, the more our government stood out as being corrupt and warmongers with too much power at their disposal.

With the help of my friend, I have woken up to this revolution. It started with Ron Paul's message, but it doesn't end there. We have the power to take this revolution to the top and shake the government to its very core. We the people have the power to do this.

This song and its lyrics are a battle-cry for the people to have their own self revolution, to wake up and see what they are doing to our citizens and our land.

WE ARE THE NEW MOVEMENT!!!
WE ARE THE REVOLUTION!!!
