Hey Rosetta! And Yukon Blonde release Anti Conservative song “Land You Love”

They are from opposite ends of the country, but they have come together and have released a song urging Canadians to vote for parties other than the Conservatives.

Written by Tim Baker, the song is titled “Land You Love”. On their Vimeo profile, their advise is, “Please visit VOTETOGETHER.CA and vote to avoid another tragic Harper government.”

Land You Love

what have we lost, poisoned, or crushed?
what highest hopes were stolen from us?
what holy rolling hills were cut into dust?
what voices were stifled, silenced, scared and carried off?

do you think we can hide? (no)
put your head in the sand? (no)
do you think we can ride it out?
well some of us can’t

who’s after taking our wages and our trust?
our women forsaken, forgotten, and lost
our holy rolling hills, our waters, our crops
are hid in their bills, pushed through and hushed up and sold off like pawns

do they think they can hide them? (no)
keep our heads in the sand? (no)
do they think they can ride it out for another one?
well we say they can’t
there is a time (oh)
when a change has to come (oh)
for you to speak your mind (oh)
for you to fight for the land you love

when i was a child, i sang the anthem with pride
it stood for justice, peace, and human rights
it stood for the holy rolling hills and a home for all walks of life
and it must again, for my children, and theirs

do you think they can hide? (no)
put their heads in the sand? no
you think they can ride it out?
well some of em can’t
no now is the time (oh)
when a change has to come (oh)
for you to draw a line (oh)
and to fight for the land you love
