The inspirational ballad, No Wall Too Tall, by folk singer and social change advocate, Raffi, calls for reform of the financial system. This song and many others are available for free download or streaming at the website of the organization Centre for Child Honouring.

 

People say it’s hopeless, money rules the world

It rules with an iron hand, and we’re helpless in its hold

 

People say you’re crazy, you can’t break that wall

It’s too old, too big, too strong, it’s never going to fall

I say – think of the Iron Curtain, remember Berlin,

Remember apartheid, look at the state they’re in

There’s no wall too tall

No wall too tall to fall

No wall, no wall too tall

 

Money vendors crowd the temple, survival crowds the heart

It seems there’s no other way, you’re doomed before you start

But we know a greater power in the hearts of the young and old

Love for all the children, the compassion in our world

And I say : No wall too tall

No wall too tall to fall

No wall, no wall too tall

 

sound the call, blow the bugle, walls come a tumblin down

in the face of the power of love, the rules start spinning around

No wall too tall

No wall too tall to fall

No wall, no wall too tall

No wall too tall

No wall too tall to fall

No wall, no wall too tall
