nps ows Watch: New pro Occupy Wall Street video from New Party Systems

New Party Systems — an indie supergroup made up of TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone, Liturgy’s Bernard Gann, ex-Liturgy drummer Greg Fox and Notekillers’ David First — just dropped a pro-Occupy Wall Street song and video called “We Are.”

The song starts out smooth and melodic before moving along to bring out stronger drums and closes with “We are the 99 percent” chant recorded during marches on November 17.

Check out the video, which shows protesters from around the world singing along with the lyrics, and lyrics below. New Party Systems have not yet announced any plans for a full-length record, but a few demo tracks and “We Are” are available on Bandcamp.

Lyrics:
We are the dawn’s electric rise
A gathering of consciousness creating
We are an overwhelming tide
Of heat and light and sound to break the chain

Time to take the keys back to our kingdom
It is time to move the rules to fairer ground
Equality and justice so the masses can breathe free again
The workers and the players have to take this world and turn it all around

We are the dawn’s electric rise
A gallery of consciousness creating
We are an overwhelming tide
Of reason and rights endowed to change the game

And to those who think that nothing ever happens
When peaceful forces speak the truth to power
Watch the water carving through the mountain’s heart of stone
How simple winds increase until they topple every tower

And we love to see you
Stepping up across the lands
And we love to be with you
As you make your righteous stand

And we love to hear you
Shouting out your desires
And we love to cheer you
As you join the expanding choir

We are the dawn’s electric rise
A galaxy of consciousness creating
We are an overwhelming tide
The heat and light and sound they can’t contain
