71. Michael Valeri --Change The World! (Jeff Beheshti)


Lyrics, music and performance by Michael Valeri 

Jeff Beheshti, a native Iranian and peace activist, undertook a hungerstike on the North Seattle Community College Campus. His goal is to alert others of the fight for democracy and freedom from violation of human rights in Iran. Growing up in Iran, he experienced life under the regime and empathizes with the Iranian people.

Another exposed case of vote conspiracy

Iran cried out for change but Mahmoud won’t let them speak

Well their voices must be heard

They’re shouting in the streets!

Fear gives way to strength

A calling for peace!

 

One man! One heart! One sacrifice!

He’ll open up your eyes

One voice! One dream! One fight for right!

Beheshti changed the world

Democracy’s at stake but no ones listening

The world sits by and waits, the human rights they violate

 

The fires flame, innocent slain

But they can’t stop the youth!

The death tolls rise, government lies

The power of truth!

 

One man! One heart! One sacrifice!

He’ll open up your eyes

One voice! One dream! One fight for right!

Beheshti changed the world

 

Their voices aren’t being heard

They’re dying in the streets!

Their fight is our fight

Rise up and be free!

 

One man! One heart! One sacrifice!

He’ll open up your eyes

One voice! One dream! One fight for right!

Beheshti…Beheshti…

Change the world! Change the world! Change the world! Change the world!

Rise up, be free, fight for democracy

They can’t hide the executions, a call for revolution

Oppression, aggression, and all the forced confessions

Beheshti strikes alone, but we unite for peace
