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.

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.

 

New song Love Peace Honour – JR Murphy

Been listening to lots of Pete Seeger, new words came to me for the song The Power and the Glory by Phil Ochs.  Influenced by the NZ National anthem’s promise of love, Christian values (which do not include advancing the power and wealth of the rich while denying and degrading the poor) and peace by guarding us against dissension envy and hate – which INEQUALITY does not do.

LOVE PEACE HONOUR

Come take a walk with me through this green and growing land
Walk through the paddocks, the mountains and the sand
Walk through the valleys, the rivers and the plains
Walk through the sun and walk through the rain

CHORUS
Here is a land full of love peace honour
Beauty that words cannot recall
Oh her love shall rest on the strength of her justice
Peace and honour shall rest on us all

From Stuart Island through to Westland along the Southern Alps too
Marlborough Sounds to Napier from the old to the new
Taupo, Coromandle and a Bay of Islands shore
Tell me who could ask for more

CHORUS
Here is a land full of love peace honour
Beauty that words cannot recall
Oh her love shall rest on the strength of her justice
Peace and honour shall rest on us all

Yet she’s only as rich as the poorest of the poor
Only as free as that padlocked cell door
Only as strong as our love for this land
Only as tall as we stand

CHORUS
Here is a land full of love peace honour
Beauty that words cannot recall
Oh her love shall rest on the strength of her justice
Peace and honour shall rest on us all

Come take a walk with me through this green and growing land
Walk through the paddocks the mountains and the sand
Walk through the valleys, the rivers and the plains
Walk through the sun and walk through the rain

CHORUS
Here is a land full of love peace honour
Beauty that words cannot recall
Oh her love shall rest on the strength of her justice
Peace and honour shall rest on us all

End

Some really good lines in here, be good for chalking.
