NEWS: SINGER-SONGWRITER PATRICK AMES DELIVERS A REWORKED VERSION OF A POLITICALLY RELEVANT TRACK


Written by: Jen Dan

San Francisco-based singer-songwriter Patrick Ames just released a timely and re-envisioned version of his original politically relevant song Reawakened that came out in 2017 as Trump was barging his divisive and destructive way into office in the US.

The newly reworked tune, titled Reawakened 2020, is a rallying cry that yet again needs to be heard and heeded in this presidential (and other offices) election year – with the implicit message to VOTE if you want to change what’s been going on for the past few years in the US.

Producer Jon Ireson pumps up the intensity of the rock-gospel number, as well as adding some bass and other instrumentation to boost the dynamics.

Ames and vocalists Chana Matthews and Mikaela Matthews (mother and daughter) are as passionate as ever, belting out the important lyrics.

Ames relates, “The song is the antidote to Trump and to his hate and hate-filled politics. It’s time for the “good in us all” to simply out-weigh the fear and hate and greed and ignorance.”

Rewakened lyrics:

The force of good it has been reawakened
The Force of good it has been it’s been reawakened
The hour has come for the power of belief
That the good in us all is about to be released
The force of good has been reawakened

Don’t be fooled by the lies in the tweets
Don’t be cajoled by politicians on TV
Don’t be silent about dividing families
Because the good in us all is about to be released

Reawakended, reawakened, reawakened
The force of good it has been reawakened

Don’t be shy about your equality
Don’t be quiet when they fence in the free
Don’t be violent when they interrupt the peace
Because the good in us all is about to be released

Reawakended, reawakened, reawakened
The force of good it has been reawakened

The hour has come for the power of belief
That the good in us all is about to be released
The hour has come for the power of belief
That the good in us all is about to be released

The force of good it has been reawakened
The Force of good it has been reawakened

Are you reawoke?
