what can we do?
the world is burning, can’t you see?
of course you can’t, you still think we’re free
let me ask you, do you believe the news?
is it where you get all of your information? do you believe it’s all true?
well i need to tell you, the truth cannot be farther
there are too many people who want your world to become darker
they want you to feel fear, and rely on them for protection
they’re wearing a mask to scare you, then turn around and show you fake affection
i want you to open your eyes, i want you to truly see
see the world for what it is now, and what it could be
allow me to rip the blindfold off of your head
trying to live with this on is basically living when you’re dead
there’s a radical difference between living and merely existing
you’re walking around working for a life you don’t have time to enjoy, there’s so much you’re missing
don’t you realize that we can change it all?
when we finally rise up, it is us who can make that call
we seem to forget the power that we have
this is what frustrates me, what drives me mad
because i’ve seen what this world could become if we got our shit right
but it’s hard, because all we want to do is fight
let me drop some truth on you, violence will never be the answer
love will always be it, so throw the aggression aside, and embrace the tiny dancer
bliss is where we belong
anger, jealousy and hatred, it is all wrong
so open your eyes, and join the rest of us
and get ready to stand with us when we rise up.
