A BETTER PLACE

Roxanne Meadows:
"So this is an entirely different system. We look at what causes the problems and try and design a society that eliminates war, poverty, hunger, crime, and that can be done today."

Money isn’t what you want and I’ll prove it too
You really only want the things money do for you
You can’t eat it, drink it, it don’t keep you warm
You can’t stack it around you and build a decent home
We don’t need reform from any politicians
who make plants illegal for you to rot in prison
The thing about the system that you gotta see
is that it’s no longer relevant, it’s obsolete
We need a brand new vision for the way that we live
Gotta change the world before our babies get big
so they don’t feel a hundred and twenty degrees in the summer
we can put the guns down and scream “PEACE” if we wanna
I’m tired of living paycheck to paycheck
This madhouse - I’ve tried but I can’t escape it
I don’t blame anybody, it’s the same disease
we’re all plagued by money and insane with greed
At least we’re trained to be, it’s indoctrination
The elite bent on worldwide domination
We shouldn’t have to go to war and die for our nations
while the only benefits go to corporations
We can do much better, you can read about it
Resource-Based Economy, The Venus Project
Perpetual debt… where’s the bleepin’ logic?
I dream about shouting’ “Peace, I’m out this…”
Gonna bring you all with me if I ever get there
You can have abundance and access to healthcare
No more slave wages, it’s got to go!
Tryin’ to feed our kids is almost impossible
We all want the same things, we’re just tryin’ to live
You don’t want the whole pie, just a slice of it
So I’m-a strike a match and get right, ya dig?
And I wish that you all could feel as nice as this

Ask yourself - Do you really want war?
(and the world… could be a better place)
Ask yourself - Could we really end poverty?
(and the world… could be a better place)
Ask yourself - Is it worth looking into?
(and this world… could be a better place)
For the stress and hard times you’ve been through
(the whole world… could be a better place)
Ask yourself - Do you really want war?
(and the world… could be a better place)
Ask yourself - Could we really end poverty?
(and the world… could be a better place)
Ask yourself - Is it worth looking into?
(and this world… could be a better place)
A bright new future. NO borders. Come in dude!
(the whole world… could be a better place)

for you… and me…
for you… and we…
for you… and me…
for you… and we…

Man I’m not your enemy, just hear me out
and let’s have conversation - no screaming or shouting
……let’s have conversation - no screaming or shouting

I don’t wanna tell you how to live, make up your own damn mind
You don’t like how I feel? Cool homie, that’s fine
We don’t have to kill each other over it though
Do you, I’ll do me, we move forward and roll
That’s what grown folk do! There is NO utopia!
We stop improving… the show is over, so…
…you got an idea? Man, I’m glad to listen
A whole lot more UNITY, …that’s what’s missing.

Ask yourself - Do you really want war?
(and the world… could be a better place)
Ask yourself - Could we really end poverty?
(and the world… could be a better place)
Ask yourself - Is it worth looking into?
(and this world… could be a better place)
For the stress and hard times you’ve been through
(the whole world… could be a better place)
Ask yourself - Do you really want war?
(and the world… could be a better place)
- Could we really end poverty?
(and the world… could be a better place)
- Is it worth looking into?
(and this world… could be a better place)
A bright new future. NO borders. Come in dude!
(the whole world… could be a better place)
