Human Sewage

A minor & G, song

I am human sewage, the DHB decided so
Bob Francis said do nothing, pretend we don’t know

I am human sewage, ACC decided so
Nick Smith said lets do nothing, keep up this torture show

I am human sewage, the commissioners decided so
The Ombudsman said do nothing, we don’t wanna know what you know

I am human sewage, the government decided so
John Key said lets do nothing, keep up this hypocrite show

I am human sewage, our MPs decided so
When they all said “We can’t do nothin, go away we don’t wanny know”

I am human sewage, mental health decided so
In the Wairarapa are ignorant bigots, running a suicide show

Turning me to human sewage, standing here just so
A witness to the lies they’re telling, cause they’re cruel & I know

I am human sewage, many people decided so
When they all stood back and did nothing, that’s why I’m here on show

Singing we have human sewage, created some years ago
When neo-liberals took over this country & a right-wing agenda took hold

Aye aye aye aye aye
Aye aye aye aye aye aye
Aye aye aye aye aye
Aye aye aye aye aye aye

God of National – song based on the NZ National Anthem

God of national at thy feet
In the bonds of fear we meet
Hear our voices we entreat
We must defend our free land

Guard our country’s loving state
From those who only want to take
Care for all show no-one hate
God defend New Zealand

All who sing this song are bound
A solumn oath to stand their ground
When there is injustice found
We must defend our free land

From dissension, envy, hate
And corruption guard our state
Make our country good and great
God defend New Zealand

Peace not war shall be our boast
But should those cruel asail our coast
Make us then a mighty host
We must defend our free land

Lord of battles in thy might
Give us strength, take up the fight
When our cause is just and right
God defend New Zealand

Let our love for all increase
Our quest for fairness never cease
Give all plenty, give all peace
We must defend our free land

From dishonour and from shame
Guard our country’s good deeds and name
Be guided by an eternal flame
God defend New Zealand

Never let democracy fall
Teach compassion, love and truth to all
Let the facts, not fear stand tall
God defend New Zealand

Stay Stay Away – song dedicated to Wairarapa Police

Stay Stay Away

My voice shatters the silence
This shit I’m in is grave
If only you had listened
If only you’d stayed away

CHORUS
But you jumped in your car
And you sped it this way
If only you had listened
Wouldn’t be singing in the cells today

(stay, stay away)

As I sat there and I waited
Police could see the tears on my face
Of your time and my honour
It’s such as bloody waste

CHORUS
Cause you jumped in your car
And sped it my way
If only you had listened
Wouldn’t be singing this song today

My voice cuts through the silence
As you drove me home today
Wish you your tazer gone for good
With my life you would not play

You just jumped in your car
And sped it away
To me you’ll finally listen
And away you then will stay

(stay, stay away)

End

Awesome – love it – can’t wait to sing it outside the police station in next couple of days. They needn’t think I’m gunna sit back and just accept this treatment.

 

 

Arrested (sorry detained) by police again today outside supermarket – WTF

Get this phoned Stephen Joyce’s office about this new app to find out best job to get and I have decided on studying to be an ICT Business and Systems Analyst, high earnings, average education costs and high number of jobs.  Will help with my activism and have a couple of Victoria papers I can probably count towards the degree.  Only 3 years full time – hope I can do it.

Anyway, I got upset because of being unemployed so long and everything that is going on, but I did not say I was going to fkn kill myself.  This guy phoned police, who not long after phoned me and said they were on their way round – completely freaked out, took off in the car, ended up at the local park until I had calmed down.  I knew I had to go back and face the music but my first reaction was to run, all I could think of was what happened on Xmas Eve, and these guys were on their way to hurt me.  Plus another possible showdown with CATT team.

I was away about 45 mins, decided to go home and on the way saw the police car coming out of a nearby street, my street, I decided to go and get something from the supermarket.  They had seen me and followed me, the got me coming out, were waiting for me, I saw the car arrived.  This was in front of all the staff, people I know, people who already dislike me because I don’t work and am called Crazy Jayne.  It was so fucking humiliating – even though they were reasonably ok cops.  Didn’t like the older one, they wouldn’t let me get in my car and follow them to the police station, they made me get in their car, threatened handcuffs the wanker – told him be better fucking not in a quiet voice.

I noticed when I was in the car one of them had a tazer – this is really threatening shit – how the fuck did the system get so fucked.  I am reminded of the verse ITS ALL BULLSHIT, RUN BY COCK SUCKERS, BACKED UP BY SOME VERY STUPID MOTHER FUCKERS!

So ended up in Masterton, singing my heart out, Why Am I arrested, Human Sewage and some poetry, very loud, heaps of echo, a prisoner gave me shit because I was annoying him.  Told him tough fucking shit I’ll do whatever I fucking want while I’m in this fucking cell.  Was there about an hour I think, taken home the long way, had to stop at Carterton.  Was ticking and rocking backwards and forwards, crying for most of the way, my head down and hands over my ears.  I couldn’t look out the window on the way back, what if someone saw me.  This is bullshit and I am going to fucking change it.  Already left a message for Brent Register and put a comment on Wairarapa Police site, now I’ve written a song.

Have been asked to perform at a gig in Wellington in a couple of weeks and I needed a new song, something not quite so dark, this will be perfect as no instrument, just voice.

Stay Stay Away

There’s a cold stoney silence
As I stand at my grave
If only you had listened
If only you’d stayed away

CHORUS
But you jumped in your car
And you sped it this way
If only you had listened
Wouldn’t be singing this song today

(stay, stay away)

As I sat there and I waited
They could see the tears on my face
Of your time and my honour
It’s such as bloody waste

CHORUS
Cause you jumped in your car
And you sped it this way
If only you had listened
Wouldn’t be sitting in the cells today

There’s a cold stoney silence
As you drove me home today
Wish you were gone for good
With my life you would not play

You just jumped in your car
And you sped it away
To me you’ll finally listen
And away you then will stay

(stay, stay away)

End

Awesome – love it

 

Must Stand Jerry, new song – dedicated to Jerry Mataparae – COWARD!

Must stand Jerry, yes you gotta know you must stand now
Must stand Jerry, now general, yes you gotta know you must stand now
Government’s running poor people down
Now its time to stop, stamp your royal foot on the ground

All you ever do is ride around Jerry (and hide Jerry hide)
All you ever do is ride around Jerry (and hide Jerry hide)
All you ever do is ride around Jerry (and hide Jerry hide)
All you ever do is ride around Jerry (and hide Jerry hide)
One of these early mornings, you gunna be seeing our weeping eyes, yeah

National bought the news so you must stand – against their hate and lies
We’re coming round, poor child man and woman
Cause we’re hurt, and they don’t, hear our cries
Must stand Jerry, now general, yes you gotta know you must stand now
Government’s running poor people down
Now its time to stop, stamp your royal foot on the ground

All you ever do is ride around Jerry (and hide Jerry hide)
All you ever do is ride around Jerry (and hide Jerry hide)
All you ever do is ride around Jerry (and hide Jerry hide)
All you ever do is ride around Jerry (and hide Jerry hide)
One of these early mornings, you gunna be seeing our weeping eyes, yeah
Our weeping eyes, our weeping eyes
Our weeping eyes, yeah yeah, our weeping eyes.

End

The words are really flowing at the moment, especially after I was told by Jerry’s office yesterday that there was no way I would be allowed an hour meeting with Governor-General.  He couldn’t possibly see all the people who were making complaints like me, the line would be out the door and down the road. Bloody coward – he knows who I am though, I’ve sent letters and been protesting when he was opening Parliament – creep.  Good to know there are lots of people making complaints then and adds to my legal challenge about being able to look these people who are supposed to protect us in the eye.

Song also gave me idea for a Guerrilla Protest Mission to government house, near the Basin Reserve.  Will make sure I get there early and chalk the song plus some other comments I want to make about this COWARD.  Got to take my video camera and get some of this stuff on Youtube.

 

Hold On – JR Murphy

Just wrote these new lyrics, been listening to Pete Seeger and Bruce Springstein singing Keep Your Eyes on the Prize, Hold On.  Was fuming after watching TV One coverage of ‘independent’ review of WINZ shootings. Government and media spin sickening.  Makes you want to give up when the lies are at the top level of government, ‘consultants’ & news media.

JR Murphy’s bound for court
Cause they’re not doing what they ought
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
Says disabled are treated like dirt
People in suits inflict more hurt
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

Freedoms aims are a muddy street
Soon the highways of hell are gunna meet
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
Keep your hands on the gospel plough
In the fires of hell here now

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on, hold on, hold on
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

Mentally ill are rotting in jail
Cause health services designed to fail
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
Being told you’re just no good
Just an addict, could if you would

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on, hold on, hold on
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

Been watchin ‘the man’ telling you lies
Media bigots in disguise
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
Day after the election was lost
Armour went on and the gloves came off

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on, hold on, hold on
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

That thing that you did wrong
Is not listen to us and our songs
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
That thing that we did was right
Was for good to keep up the fight

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on, hold on, hold on
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
(Repeat)
Hold on (repeat x 6

(slowly)
Wanna go to heaven cause I’ve been told
The streets are paved with gold, instead
I’ll keep my eyes on the prize and hold on

Note that verse referring to Bill English telling an audience all people on long term welfare were like addicts – WTF – that was so insulting and corrupt.  Bill English knows my situation and I can’t get health care – lying pig.

The Torture Wheel – JR Murphy

I’ve written a thousand letters
Phoned a thousand times
Been ignored by hundreds of people
Been told hundreds of lies

I’ve been arrested for saying in chalk
A truth they don’t wanny hear
Stripped naked because of disorder
Neglected because of fear

CHORUS
I’m on that torture wheel
A hot potato am I
I’m on that torture wheel
And I keep on asking them why

I’ve written dozens of poems
About the plight I am in
Written dozens of lyrics and songs
Almost committed a moral sin

I’ve cried a river of tears
Grieved and grieved again
Screamed and wailed at injustice
Been driven to the point of insane

I’m on that torture wheel
A hot potato am I
I’m on that torture wheel
And I keep on asking them why

Rehabilitation must be the goal
And the care ’til you heal
Not the current ‘hot potato’ way
The current torture wheel

This poem’s just one of many
Exposing lies, exposing facts
Until we all get the help that we need
I’ll stay upon these tracks

I’m on that torture wheel
A hot potato am I
I’m on that torture wheel
And I keep on asking them why

If you’re on the torture wheel
If you’re one just like me
At the mercy of ignorant bigots
In mental health and ACC

If you’re on the torture wheel
If you’re one just like me
It’s time to stand up for your rights
Get all the care that you need

I’m on that torture wheel
A hot potato am I
I’m on that torture wheel
And I keep on asking them why

End

What the NZ government does to long term disabled people on welfare is psychological torture, it is degrading, it is experimental and follows no known health or rehabilitation models and to make this failure palatable to their right-wing bigoted voters they brainwash everybody into thinking it is ok.

 

Wherefore Art Thou ACC – JR Murphy

Wrote this poem at a time I was listening to heaps of Eminem, still remember the night I started rapping the poem to I’m A Soldier.  Cheers for the inspiration Marshall.

Wherefore art thou ACC x 2

No matter how you phrase it
The law tells me the rules
They’re meant for my interpretation
You bureaucratic fools

The times I’ve used the law before
I havn’t needed help
But now I am incapable
Of fighting for myself

Don’t tell me I am wrong
I’ve read it in the act
How ACC is there for us
Why do you ignore that fact

You’ll come and clean my toilet
To get me on my feet
But when I ask for help with parenting
You tell me not to bleat

No matter how far down the cliff I’ve gone
I’m never far enough
Until I lose my sanity
Thing’s gunna be real rough

I want to scream it in your face
I’ve tried with mental health
But I know you just won’t listen
Because I have no wealth

I am a body and a mind
No more important than the other
I don’t deserve this treatment
It just keeps me in the gutter

Cause I had no status in your eyes
As I was just a student
It’s a case of human rights abuse
To you it’s fiscally prudent

Wherefore art thou ACC
Wherefore art thou ACC

And as I write this rap
I feel better about myself
I’m not a wasted loser
Just a product of ignorance

I don’t have cuts and bruises
Leg’s not severed at the thigh
And I never got the help I needed
Keep on asking why

The blood pools all around me
Drips from every piece of art
What does a person do
With such a badly broken heart

Every time I ask for help
It gets increasingly harder
Rejection’s like a hunger’s knife
Giving deep wounds to my mana

I’m filled with toxic shame
A festering type of wound
But all you want to give me
Are drugs to change my mood

It seems so obvious to me
What needs to be done
Treat the mentally injured
The same as anyone

Ignore me at your peril
I’m not about to go away
I will demand that you obey the law
And stop – this – twisted – game you play

Wherefore art thou ACC
Wherefore art thou ACC

Last Train To Wellywood – JR Murphy – For Sale $2

Creativity off the Richter Scale, was listening to Peter Seeger singing Last Train to Nuremberg and these words came pouring out of me.  Dedicated to all those people who know how bad it is for poor and disabled people and sit back and do fucking nothing!

Last train to Wellywood
Last train to Wellywood
Last train to Wellywood
All on board
(Repeat)

Do I see Brendan Boyle? Do I see Paula Bennett
Do I see John Key, Bill English and all their crew
Do I see our Governor-General
Do I see both right and left
Do I see the voters, me and you

Last train to Wellywood
Last train to Wellywood
Last train to Wellywood

Tell me is that blood upon my hands

Last train to Wellywood
Last train to Wellywood
Last train to Wellywood
All on board

Oooooo Oooooo Ooooooo

If 5000 good caring people, went to Wellington

Would they say “They had to watch a rugby game.”

Last train to Wellywood
Last train to Wellywood
Last train to Wellywood
All on board
(repeat)

End

Now that’s a keeper and I know a couple of musicians who would be able to accompany me singing this. I got some work to do.

Now the lyrics of this song are for sale and on the internet it makes them illegal under the Electoral Act – WTF.  Lets hope that High Court judge in Planet Key case isn’t corrupt.
