about

KAISA Lahti, Finland


I am a musician, a puppeteer a poet and an activist from Lahti Finland.  
 
I'm searching for the wild rawness in humanity and trying to understand why and what and more. 
Music is a language that speaks to our emotions. For me, it is a way to stay open and flowing, it truly keeps me sain. I am a warrior goddess fighting for what I feel is right and music is my chosen weapon

Track Name: Slaving Away
Slaving Away

I can hardly get up in the morning, Slaving away in the system
All I feel is fed up and horny, Slaving away in the system
We're all part of huge machine, it's gonna eat us up before we even notice. Slaving away in the system, Slaving away in the system

I can barely live on my income,Slaving away in the system
Waiting for my payday to come, Slaving away in the system
It's a twisted economy, it takes the money from us and gives it to the rich
Slaving away in the system, Slaving away in the system

Give us your time, we'll give you money
Give us your time, we'll give you money

I can hardly get up in the morning, Slaving away in the system
All I feel is worn out and phoney, Slaving away in the system
We're all part of a catastrophe, it's gonna burn us up before we even notice.

Give us your time, we'll give you money
Give us your time, we'll give you money

Money, money, money....
Track Name: Police
Police

I can't breath he said,11 times he said,
I can't breath he said but they choked him to death.
Don't have a gun he said, Ain't done nothing he said,
Don't have a gun he said but they shot him to death.

Police protects you from violence, from murder, from hate crimes,
Police, they protect you.
Police protects you from violence, from murder, from hate crimes,
Police, they protect you.

I ain't guilty he said, and I can prove it he said
But the jury didn't care and they gave him the chair
Put your hands up they said, but I just need my meds
Put your hands up they said but they shot him off his chair

Police protects you from violence, from murder, from hate crimes,
Police, they protect you.
Police protects you from violence, from murder, from hate crimes,
Police, they protect you.

I can't breath, I can't breath
11 times, 11 times
I can't breath he said but they choked him to death.
Don't have a gun, don't have a gun
Ain't done nothing, I ain't done nothing
Don't have a gun he said but they shot him to death.

Police protects you from violence, from murder, from hate crimes,
Police, they protect you.
Police protects you from violence, from murder, from hate crimes,
Police, they protect you.
They protect you, They protect you, They protect you, They protect you, They protect you, They protect you, They protect you, They protect you,
They protect you, They protect you?
Track Name: My Life Makes
My Life Makes

On a normal day, someone like you me and they
Might do several things and they might, maybe go like this.
I drive my car, not very far, but it's so goddamn cold right and I need to get to places like the grocerystore,
Where I buy some dead animals wrapped in plastic, which I don't like,
but a girl's gotta eat right yeah
I have a silent moment for their tortured lives, but then I carry with my chores and buy some more stuff that I like.

My life makes pollution
your life is consumption
endless substance distribution

my life makes immigration
your life makes segregation
rich white priviledge domination

All is fine with me, but there are times I cannot be
And I contemplate the gloomy fate our lives here generate
The people down the line will want the same as you and I
But I ask myself, will there be anything for them to sing about?

My life makes pollution
your life is consumption
endless substance distribution

my life makes deprivation
your life de-forestation
rich white corporation domination

We wont have a home anymore if we don't stop.
We wont have a home anymore if we don't stop.

We need to give up something if we want to survive.
We need to give up something if we want to survive.
Track Name: I Need My Bones
I need my bones

From the depth of our bones we get wisdom
From the depth of our bones we get freedom
From the depth of our bones we get rhythm
In the depth of our bones we are home

Bones, bones, I need my bones
Need my bones for dancing, Need my bones for dancing
Bones, bones, I need my bones
Need my bones for dancing, Need my bones for dancing

From the depth of our bones we get wisdom
From the depth of our bones we get freedom
From the depth of our bones we get rhythm
In the depth of our bones we are home

Bones, bones, I need my bones
Need my bones for dancing, Need my bones for dancing
Bones, bones, I need my bones
Need my bones for dancing, Need my bones for dancing

I need my bones,
Need my bones for dancing, Need my bones for dancing..
Track Name: Imaginary Oblivion
IMAGINARY OBLIVION

In my imaginary oblivion
I wouldn't care about what you or the others think of me
Wouldn't dare to be any less
Any less than the fullest me

In my imaginary oblivion
I would see the beauty of a rainy day
And a melancholy atmosphere in me.
In my imaginary oblivion
I wouldn't care about what you or the others think of me
Wouldn't dare to be any less
Any less than the wildest me

Wildest me, the wildest me, I can be the wildest me.
Wildest me, the wildest me, I can be the wildest me.

In my imaginary oblivion
I would laugh and laugh
Until the seriousness in me, would disappear, like the smoke in the air,
In a Native American fireplace, that has told of blood and violation
generations in an endless line , it will be all fine I say, but I stare at the bloodfalls
and I cry, and I cry for the pain of it all.

And I cry, And I cry, And I cry, And I cry,


In my imaginary oblivion
i would throw away my accessories
my shame my fear and my judgemental gear
in my imaginary oblivion
In my imaginary oblivion
I would hide away
in a faraway wildwood
and all the creatures would clap their paws
for me and my horse

and i ride ride away
and i ride ride away

hey koppotikoppotikoppotikopoti hey
hey koppotikoppotikoppotikopoti hey
hey koppotikoppotikoppotikopoti hey
hey koppotikoppotikoppotikopoti hey

galloping galloping away / fullest me, the fullest me i can be the fullest me
galloping away / wildest me, the wildest me i can be the wildest me
gallopinggallopinggalloping away / wildest me yeah yeah yeah
