about

written in response to the house arrest of Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks. An homage to truth defenders, disseminators, seekers and tellers.

lyrics

"Don't stand in the dark and lie to me
Come into the light where I can see
The blood on your hands
The evil in your eye - I love Julian!

It's gonna get ugly, it's gonna get rough
I know just how tough they're gonna play
They wanna shut you down
They gotta shut you up - I love Julian!

The titans are trembling - the tyrants are scared
Of Delilah cutting off their hair
Well-coiffed secrets
Are falling to the floor - I love Julian!

The uniforms and the business suits
Are terrified that we will see the truth
That they're bleeding us dry
They're taking everything we got - I love Julian!

All the heroes I've ever loved
Have been shot, jailed or hung
For telling the truth for saying it straight
For taking the heat - and I love Julian!

I love Julian - ooooh ooooh - I love Julian - I love Julian!

See the monster with his mask
See the bullies with the guns and the gas
See the people
Marching in the street - I love Julian!

See the shiny war machine
That fights a foe I do not know or see
While mercenaries profit
And the politicians preen - I love Julian!

The truth is a lover in the night
Passionate and hot
The truth whispers in your ear
Now's the time to JUST STAND UP!

Some times it's a word - some times it's an act
Some times it's a march in the street
Some times it's quiet - some times it's a riot
Some times it's a leak - and I love Juiian!

All the heroes I've ever loved
Have been shot, jailed or hung
For telling the truth for saying it straight
For taking the heat - and I love Julian!

I love Julian - ooooh ooooh - I love Julian - I love Julian!
I love Julian - ooooh ooooh - I love Julian - I love Julian!

about

Karin Blaine Seattle, Washington

Indie-acoustic powerhouse, Karin Blaine, describes her show and music as a 'liza-minelli-meets-bob-dylan-meets-dick-cavett' kind-of-experience that is part diva, part poet, part smart ass and snake charmer. Blaine maximizes the potential of one voice and one guitar to hook up herself and her fellow messiahs with the heart of being human in a modern day world. ... more
