Ministry of Woke, a brand-new band, based out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada is debuting their single, 'Orwellian World', to tackle the issue of military industrial complex. It addresses the young generation's frustration with politicians engaging in reckless arms trade with dictatorships, particularly Saudi Arabia, but also other dictatorships such as UAE, Syria and Bahrain and authoritarian leaders of nations such as China and Russia. It draws parallels between the current Saudi-led genocide in Yemen and the Holocaust. 
  • The song, while composed in English, features a phrase each from Arabic, Hebrew, and Farsi.

'Orwellian World' is inspired partly by George Orwell's classic novel, 1984, and draws on many concepts and ideas in the novel. It also draws on the artists' own experiences as a victim of terrorism, including terrorist events that were financed by Saudi Arabian monarchs.
Ministry of Woke's current focus is on releasing the album to coincide with the Canadian federal elections, and bringing focus to Canada's role in the genocide in Yemen. 
  • The band may re-release the same song or a similar song in the future to coincide with American 2020 elections. 
The single, 'Orwellian World' addresses the ill effects of military industrial complex from a global perspective and points out the problems associated with it, especially in relation to arms sales to dictatorships like Saudi Arabia.

End Arms Sales - Stop arming dictators!

With the current Canadian focus, the band's website forwards to endarmssales.com, which also belongs to the artists, to educate all Canadian voters, young and old, about the devastation Canada is engaging in by trading arms with the Saudi dictatorship. 
They are asking the question "How Are We Different From The Nations That Traded Arms With Nazi Germany?".

The Lyrics:

"We live in a crazy Orwellian world War is peace and peace is war Politicians cryin’ out their crocodile tears Always feeding on our fears Paying fake homage to the holocaust Selling weapons at the highest cost selling genocide to dictators Yeah they are nothing but a bunch of rich traitors I see the reflection of Auschwitz in Yemeni farms and townships selling them arms to the Arabian Nazi who call the land of Hijaz Saudi! In the impoverished deserts profiting weapons and famine While shareholders are purchasing yachts Yemeni children starve getting their world torn apart our generation will be different No more military industrial complex No more war, no more ignorance No blood stained pay checks We’re millennials and generation X We’re educated, we’re the apex, we waste less We ain’t impatient, we’re just tired of waiting tired of doublethink, doublespeak and double standards, time to double down or beat it Vote with your money, vote with your vote Raise your avaaz and say “no more”! I grew up In Karachi terrorised by Taliban My school was bombed twice my uncle paid the sacrifice they blew the mosque at Friday prayer The story’s like a nightmare Terrorists give a damn about places of prayers And Don’t expect to see this on TV or CNN nightly lullabys of gun fire houses surrounded with barbed wire daily Saudi terrorism Victimized by fascism We became numb to the crimes and violence And never ending sirens I left Pakistan to start anew came to the west and I bid Pakistan adieu I am not Liberal nor Conservative nor Republican, Democrat or Alternative Jesus or Mohammed wouldn’t sell arms that cause genocide and so much harm there is no permanence with you and me Only God willing permanent peace with human beings love your neighbor as you love yourself ואהבת לרעך כמוך Ve Ahav’ta Lere akha Kamokha (Hebrew: love your neighbor As you love thyself) our generation will be different No more military industrial complex No more war, no more ignorance No blood stained pay checks We’re millennials and generation X We’re educated, we’re the apex, we waste less We ain’t impatient, we’re just tired of waiting tired of doublethink, doublespeak and double standards, time to double down or beat it Vote with your money, vote with your vote Raise your avaaz and say “no more”! گه زیادی نخور goh ziyadi nakhor (Farsi: don't eat a lot of shit) Americans suffering from fake news CNN had us long confused The Sun, The Posts, The Daily Mail We’re drinking cocktail of lies Fox the biggest fake news of all has foxed us Murdoch is leading US to its downfall, too astounding lying to us selling bloodshed Spending trillions of tax dollars on the manslaughter attacks Who’s the antagonist and the protagonist act? امر بالمعروف و نہی عن المنکر Amr bil Maaroof Wa nahi Anil Munkar (Arabic: Enjoin The good And forbid the wrong/evil) Gold around Obama, Harper and Trump collars bowed down to dictators drooling over petro dollars we will end racism, and anti-Semitism we will end Islamophobia and sexism will will end homophobia and fascism we will end all phobias and every “isms”! x2 our generation will be different No more military industrial complex No more war, no more ignorance No blood stained pay checks We’re millennials and generation X We’re educated, we’re the apex, we waste less We ain’t impatient, we’re just tired of waiting tired of doublethink, doublespeak and double standards, time to double down or beat it Vote with your money, vote with your vote Raise your avaaz and say “no more”!"
