I Will Never Rest  by Theo And Shannon

(From Tape Three)

I swear by the lake on the mountain
I swear by blood thats red
I swear on the cool midnight air
and i swear on my childs head

that I will never rest
until all oppression is ended
and I will never rest
Until all oppression is dead

I swear to the tigers and the forests
I swear to the whales and the seas
I swear on the life giving living earth
with all the passion in me

that I will never rest
until all oppression is ended
and I will never rest
Until all oppression is dead

I swear to the tribes of all nations
I swear to every race
I swear on the hope of every human heart
that I have the courage it takes

and I will never rest
until all oppression is ended
and I will never rest
Until all oppression is dead

I swear to the people with power
that I have power too
power to stand and to defend our land
with love with compassion with truth

and I will never rest
until all oppression is ended
and I will never rest
Until all oppression is dead
