about

Matt Jenson and the Liquid Revolution is a powerful 5-7 piece band built on a foundation of rock-solid-reggae-GROOVE with tight vocal harmonies and inspired blues-rock soloing. Joining Reggae’s long mission of revolutionary consciousness-raising, the Liquid Revolution band expresses the cry of alternative global thinking in this era of climate change and extreme economic injustice. Not only do Matt’s poetically insightful songs strike at the heart of these issues, but his tunes about joyful expressions of love, spirituality and the lessons to be learned from simple stories of every day life all offer a vision for a bright future.

THE LIQUID REVOLUTION....IT SEEPS INTO EVERYTHING.

This 'pay what you wanna' promotion lasts until February 17, 2013.

Track Name: Must Be Free
Iiiiiiii, must be free (ooh, oh oh oh)
Iiiiiiii, must be free (ooh, oh oh oh)

How can we be free
When it’s so hard to create who we wanna be

How can we be free
When we are chained to someone else's prosperity

What does it mean for you to be free?

Iiiiiiii, must be free (ooh, oh oh oh)
Iiiiiiii, must be free (ooh, oh oh oh)

Cannot carry out our responsibility
To create our true identity

Under the heel of this economic slavery
Only some of us can really see

How long will it take for you to be free?

Iiiiiiii, must be free (ooh, oh oh oh)
Iiiiiiii, must be free (ooh, oh oh oh)
(Repeat)

I want real freedom
We can see through your misconception of it
Must be free, must be free, must be free, yeaa-ay
C’mon you just, you just kill our dreams
We carry the soul of alternative global thinking
And no longer will live… under the heel of your economic slavery
Iiiiiiiiii, must be free, free, free, free…hey yea
Track Name: Drop the Line (World Revolution)
Power to the people, can we occupy
Power to the eco, can we drop the line
Power to the rest of us, make it better
Power to the people, occupy your mind!

1. The profit system has imposed on us a logic of endless growth while disrespecting Mother earth, by transforming nearly everything into commodities. Our economy has been systematically depleting resources and life forms as those few who are on the receiving end of concentrated wealth force the world down a path utterly in denial of the fact that what we call growth is mostly waste and it can no longer be taken for granted that the planet’s eco-systems can sustain future generations.

2. Occupy! History has proven that real change will never come from the top, and now it’s clear that bail-outs and misguided “free market solutions” are like trying to put out a fire with more fire. Only a united movement, consisting of an awakened population, rooted completely outside of the establishment, powered by the force of quiet truth, soul force, will usher in a new reality where meaning is no longer determined by material gain and the monetary bottom line.

3. People! The outcome of this transition we face can be a beautiful higher order existence!
A socio-economic system that is democratic, egalitarian, and based on respect means that we will enjoy simpler, longer and happier lives. Living sustainably, in harmony with the laws of nature and free from the profit-only system, will lead to energy and food security on a planet with replenished biodiversity and much richer social and cultural interconnectedness.

The only solution is WORLD REVOLUTION.
Track Name: The Material Shuffle
All you do is move your stuff from place to place
With your neighbors, try to keep the pace
What a disgrace, it’s a crazy chase
At the end of the day, a bunch of waste

MATERIAL SHUFFLE

Every day, well, you’re on the case
Running around in a crazy race
Can’t even make, first base
What do, play the bass

MATERIAL SHUFFLLLLLLLE

Yes we can
15 Minutes could save you 15% or more
Just do it. ha, I’m lovin’ it. A diamond is forever.
There are some that things money shouldn’t buy. And for everything else there’s….
think different.
More, more, more!!

- CHORUS -

You deserve a break today
Save money. Live better. Low prices, every day
Put a tiger in your tank (Fingerlicking good)
Can you hear me now
Like a rock, good to the last drop
But please don’t squeeze the….beef (I want my Wheaties)

- SOLO -

IT’S A SHUFFLLLLLE

Like a good neighbor (m’m, m’m good)
We try harder
Discover. Ink. Sapphire. Slate. Freedom.
(Tastes great, less filling)
Betcha ya can’t eat just one
When it absolutely, positively, has to be there…gentlemen, this is (vodka)
THE SHUFFLE

THE MATERIAL SHUFFLE (repeat)
It’s a shuffle cannot keep the pace It’s a chace a bunch of waste
It’s a shuffle, it’s a shuffle. Every day, Every day….aaa ooohh…..
Track Name: Again and Again (radio edit)
You know I really really love you
And I’d really like to hold your hand
Again and again

And in the evening when the moon shines
And in the morning when the sun rises again
Again, again and again

Well some time ago
You came into my view
With your blue sky smile
And I knew
It was you-oo-oo

I spent years underground
Rumaging through the lost and found
Of my troubled heart
Couldn’t even paint a stroke of art
Aa, aah, ooo

I heard a song on the radio
Talking about some kind of Higher Love
Hidden deep in your soul
And in the heavens above
Think about it

Like a strong wind on a flame
I wanna share that higher plane
But you could not see me
I fear my search is in vain
Oh no the pain
(CHORUS)

Oh baby I’m calling
I’m waiting for your reply
talk to me, talk to me now

I wanna cook you dinner,
fix your bicycle
Walk with you side by side
walk with me, walk with me now

I’ll wait here in silence
But screaming tears inside

Please, please, please!
The kind of love I see
Is not just about you and me, oh no

A wild flower shows us how to be,
in this world
wonderful world

And now my stroke of art
Has touched the singing heart
Can it be, yea (yes it can)

And now I’m happy happy happy happy happy happy all the time.
Track Name: Dragonfly Taxi
Well, I’m looking for that Dragonfly Taxi
That Jimi rode back in ‘67
I bet she could turn on less than a dime
How about a nickel?

What do you think she took for a fare
Technicolor air?
Something about the trip back then
Really seemed to get you somewhere

2X Dragonfly Taxi – sky
Dragonfly please tell me why

Her wings are baby’s breath stained glass
And her seats will tell the truth of you
But this box you’ve been trying to think your way our of
Has poisoned the morning dew

Supersonic sound is how she gets around
Eyes crazy with bloodshot love
And the billboard on her trunk reads:
“Not for money, no way!!”

2X Dragonfly Taxi – sky
Dragonfly please tell me why

Lost on a street corner planet
You are miles from reality
Hail her, but she won’t pull over
Too long now you’ve made her cry your tears

She leaves a streak of green, purple, blue light
And last I heard
Though you might not think it’s right,
She was dancing with the cotton candy clouds

2X Dragonfly Taxi – sky
Dragonfly please tell me why

Well, it took 30 years later
I found that sad lady
Buried under a cross, a flag, a dollar bill and a gun
Somewhere inside of me and you

Hang on if you can sweet darling
Cuz that burnin’ drag you feel every day
Let me say, “Ms. Dragonfly Taxi,”
Man, she’s GOING to have her way!
Track Name: Liquid Shiva
I am Liquid Shiva
Gathering dance steps of liberation

I am melting sunlight
Gathering devotion from eternity

I am breathing earthlight
Gathering wet soil from the core

And of course I want you to know
I’m a rainbow too…………

Who see’s me
Without pride or delusion
Shall be free from both joy and suffering
MY BRILLIANCE!
I love you…………

I am liquid moonlight
Gathering ripples by the sea

You are mind and body
Disciplined, poised and sure

Born to a path of sacred duty
You are lucid action

And of course I want you to know
That YOU’RE a rainbow too……….

[CHORUS]

I am liquid Shiva
Dancing ‘pon the head of Maya

My profound words of freedom
Are feathers upon the breeze

Not even sweetest nectar
Could now take you away from me

And of course I want you to know
That I adore you so……….
