Description
I am posting this for Stan Loh who asked me to post it for him. Because he isn't able to get over here as often as he likes.

Stan wrote:
Malaysia was once a well respected, progressive Islamic country. Not any more. Killed by corrupt power-grabbers belonging to a political party called Barisan Nasional. The Opposition leader and one time Deputy Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim (picture) who was wrongfully put in jail accused of sodomy. He faces another trial of sodomy based on trumped up evidences...the government is determined to jail him so that they can win fixed elections again.

I wrote this song to show my frustration! I am trying to send this to Anwar Ibrahim.

Lyrics
Pain and Rise
Copyright Stan Loh May 13, 2011

Verse 1
What is justice when your law applies,
By the colour of your skin,
When your truth is a pack of lies,
When your stolen wealth rankles in ... yet you must …
Gain! Digging for billions more,
Gain! Siphoning evermore,
Gain! Through devious backdoors…gain!

Verse 2
When your talons clutch our backs.
It’s better if lives are short,
Your double standards all attack,
Our wretched souls in court … we cry out …
Pain! Today your children pay,
Pain! What is their debt today?
Pain! Why can’t they lose these chains!
Pain! What is our guilt today?
Pain! Your bamboo judges sway,
Only your cronies gain …

Bridge
We are not cowards, marching forward,
To solve and win back our confidence,
For underneath creeps a silent strength,
Where man helps man, linked hand in hand!

Chorus
Oh Rise! Everyone must arise…
Rise! Lift up our darkened skies,
Make our peace arrive …
Oh Rise! Everyone must …
Arise! Lift up our darkened skies,
Make our peace arrive …
Oh Rise! Everyone must …
Arise! Lift up our darkened skies,
Make our peace arrive …

Excellent
I know Stan and have worked with him in the past and he's done some truly great work. This just blew me away--the song voices not only the anguish Stan and his countrymen are feeling, but the feelings of so many of us in this mixed up world we are living in currently. I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but again, Stan's songwriting and your musical skills and performing talent combine marvelously. Looking forward to the other version as well--thanks again, both of you! Michael

Thank you all my friends
First of all thanks Jibes for your participation, patience with me, and your skills!

Just to let you know, Anwar Ibrahim now has this song. I hope this helps his cause in toppling the currupt government! Too many horror stories to tell. They are just real bad people!

Thanks to all for your kind words.

Like a Dylan love song to humanity with biting lyrics about the worst among us. I really like the clarity of this mix, the authentic sound. Nice track.
