I was attempting to capture the passion, mission, activism, deep humanity and tenderness of Marianne, the new political sensibility she represents and the consciousness that produced it.
Recording at Sunset Sound with my bandmates, Marianne came by and visited. We all huddled together as the song was recorded. I love this song. I love this woman and I love a world that would vote for her.

Lyrics:
I've fallen down, joan of arc ailing, systems are failing the mission
I've been taken down, wind from my sails, by tempers that flared and were vicious 

I'm going down down down
I'm going down down down

Unless we start a revolution
Awaken from this frozen
start the mending of our union 
Today
'less we revive this constitution
From sure disintegration
live out this revelation
Today

Smile upside down, Rupture is rising,
Families are scrambling for custody
Faithlessly drowned
The chase of this dollar is tilting my altar t'ward apathy

We're going down down down
We're going down lest we move to new ground

Unless we start a revolution
Awaken from this frozen
start the mending of our union 
Today
'less we revive this constitution
From sure disintegration
live out this revelation
Today

Warm'd by this fire born from a flicker
My heart moves slower than technology
This dampened desire is rolling its sleeves up
Replaced by a vigor and empathy

I'm reaching higher and higher and higher
I'm moving up and up and up

As we bandy round solution
celebrate our evolution
That antidotes our stations 
today

And as we activate our nation
As we're joined by our companions
we ignite our generation 
today
