Performed live in Encinitas, CA, at a benefit concert with Donna de Lory (Madonna's longtime backup singer) and Larisa Stowe & Shakti Tribe for the Shakti Tribe Foundation's Prison Concert program ... a few days before our own first prison concert at Terminal Island Prison, San Pedro CA.
We sang this song for a group of inmates! Imagine ... prison inmates singing "Nobody is a Victim Here!"
Your peace isn't dependent on the rest of the world yet the peace of the world is solely up to you Your eyes have all the power to transform what they see, if they focus on the war Who the hell is gonna see the Peace
So rise up people and see with the eyes of your soul Let's rewrite history, erase all the lies we have told cause
Chorus No body is a victim here No body is a victim here No body is a victim Emancipate yourself from mental slavery like Bob Marley
The mind is like a prisoner who won't use the key it would rather be enslaved than to set itself free It locks itself in memories and complaints about now always talking always screaming so it can't hear the sound So raise your voices and sing from the silence within There's nothing more powerful Than a people who knows who they is Ohhhhh
Bridge You're not a victim of the Government A victim of the church You're not a victim to the beings that contributed to your birth You're not a victim of Society A victim of some race Not a victim Not a victim There's no victim in this place
You're not a victim of the rapist, or the murderer or thief You're not a victim to the fear that causes souls to lie and cheat You're not a victim of your body A victim of disease Not a victim Not a victim 'Till you believe the thoughts you think!
One Love ....... Let's get together and feel alright!
