A modern ode to Gandhi, sang MC-style, which is probably the best style to craft a song about an activist’s life. The melody is instrumentally-rich and features some spot-on samples of Hindu chanting.
The lyrics do an amazing job of condensing the wisdom of Gandhi’s life in just a few minutes worth of song.
“Be the change that you wanna see
in the world, just like Gandhi
“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind” and it takes more strength and faith
to be kind
you see, Gandhi-ji was a very great leader
but before all that
he was shy & meager
as a young child he was just like you and me
before he became
the word “Mahatma” it means great soul
and its inside of us just
waiting to unfold
if you follow your heart and act real bold
next time it’ll be your
story that’s told!”
