This is dedicated to PNoy, the legal team, people’s organizations, & all who worked, spoke, walked, sailed, raised a fist to win our case over the West Philippine Sea

        This is dedicated to PNoy, the legal team, people’s organizations, and all who worked, spoke, walked, sailed, raised a fist to win our case over the West Philippine Sea… 

         … and to our counterparts in China and other claimant-countries:

“In the empire of the senses

You reign supreme over all you survey

All the cities all the nations

Everything that falls your way

There is a deeper wave than this

That you don’t understand

There is a deeper wave than this

Tugging at your hand

“Every ripple on the ocean

Every leaf on every tree

Every sand dune in the desert

Every power we never see

There is a deeper wave than this

Swelling in the world

There is a deeper wave than this

Listen to me now

“Feel it rising in the cities

Feel it sweeping over the land

Over borders, over frontiers

Nothing will its power withstand

There is no deeper wave than this

Rising in the world

There is no deeper wave than this

Listen to me now

“All the bloodshed, all the anger

All the weapons, all the greed

All the armies, all the missiles

All the symbols of our fear

There is a deeper wave than this

Rising in the world

There is a deeper wave than this

Listen to me now

“At the still point of destruction

At the centre of the fury

All the angels, all the devils

All around us can’t you see

There is a deeper wave than this

Rising in the land

There is a deeper wave than this

Nothing will withstand

“I say justice is the seventh wave

I say justice is the seventh wave…

Every ripple on the ocean

Every leaf on every tree

Every sand dune in the desert

Every power we never see…”

The original arrangement by Sting is reggae-inspired; this millennial cover is gospel ballad; if you want to see the original, pls click the youtube vid below the soundcloud pod, click the soundcloud pod to stop its audio)
