"Southwind" as written by and Yoko Ono....
You say I'm a warrior fighting for the cause
But most days I feel so small, no I'm just not that strong
I feel the weight of 500 years of progress pressing down on me
Progress that has turned the earth sour
Progress that has turned our minds sour
I feel the weight of 500 years of progress pressing down on me

But there's a south wind blowing on in from Mexico
But there's a south wind blowing on in from Mexico
Change is in the air, revolution is
Change is in the air, revolution is
Change is in the air, revolution is on my mind

I wish I was the president so I could play God too
I wish I was a CEO so I could tell God what to do
Because generally I find the people that run this show,
Oh no they don't care about me and you
Because generally I find the people that run the people that run this show,
Oh no they don't care about me and you
Because generally I find the dollars that run the people that run the people that run this
show,
Oh no they don't care about me and you

So it's 500 years from wilderness to Walmart
500 years from paradise to Pillsbury
They call this progress, They call this progress

So now everything that we used to get in the forest for free
Is wrapped in plastic and made available for a fee
They call this progress, They call this progress

So it's 500 years from wilderness to Walmart
500 years from nature to Nasdaq
They call this progress, They call this progress

But there's a south wind blowing on in from Mexico
But there's a south wind blowing on in from Mexico
Change is in the air, revolution is
Change is in the air, revolution is
Change is in the air, revolution is on my mind
