OPENING:

(excerpt from Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot")"
...the delusion[s] that we have some privileged position in the universe are questioned by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."-




VERSE 1:

Ask if we'll ever see the end of wars and you're bound to hear/
that "...it'll never happen." ... "...not in a thousand years."/
I hear you loud and clear/
but I just don't accept it/
For someone who ain't done the homework - you're quick to reject it/
You understand - our air, our oceans, ... - that it's all connectee?/
Military nerve gas in our water. Why? For our protection?/
And no election in the world produces solutions/
Even communism use financial institutions, .../
...and prisons & polioce/
and so there isn't any peace/
our voice has risen in the streets/
I think a limit has been reached/
cause if we do nothing - nothing change, guaranteed/
What good's your money and your weapons with no air to breathe?/
And while the world's about to face massive unemployment/
people watching men in tights play with balls for enjoyment/
kids of the future will look at us in disgust and wondering.../
"...didn't you see it coming?"/
... "...how could you just do nothing?"/




HOOK:

They say - "Make America Great Again"! ... When was it ever great?/
We need to get up off the couch and MAKE a better place/
the choice is ours, the time is now and still we hesistate/
another world is possible now - we gotta demonstrate/
Beyond war, beyond politics and poverty/
We don't need presidents and leaders to be following/
It's time to do away with flags and borders for good/
We've got the voice and power, and now the choice is ours/




VERSE 2:

The way we're living now was great a hundred years ago/
but it's frustrating/
What's taking/
updating so long?/
We've got the best equipped universities in history/
but most of us lack the technological proficiency/
Your car is breaking down cause it's designed inefficiently/
Why not produce ABUNDANCE and get these things for free?/
Cause you don't really want a job, you want to get to work/
and do something for your fellow man and this precious Earth/
But "it'll never work."/
...right? That's what you keep saying/
The world is still burning, and we can keep praying,/
or we can build paradise, or face oblivion/
we're living in/
the point of no return/
and so I hope we learn/
that we are ONE and all need the same things to get by/
The choice is ours, the time is now - won't be a next time/
You're all my brothers no matter how much is in your wallet/
I pledge allegiance to the Earth and everybody on it/




HOOK:

They say - "Make America Great Again"! ... When was it ever great?/
We need to get up off the couch and MAKE a better place/
the choice is ours, the time is now and still we hesistate/
another world is possible now - we gotta demonstrate
/Beyond war, beyond politics and poverty/
We don't need presidents and leaders to be following/
It's time to do away with flags and borders for good/
We've got the voice and power, and now the choice is ours/




VERSE 3:

Now would it be so bad/
to automate and be free at last?/
You want to work and pay bills? ...or live the dreams you had?/
You want to feed enslaved animals or feed the kids?/
It's time to re-examine what we - quote - "need" to live/
We've got obsolete values from a long time ago/
We give opinions rather than admit "I don't know"/
We work jobs we hate, we're not living - man, we're dying slow/
Sea levels are rising bro/
across the entire globe/
Rich or poor, projects to the burbs, United States all the/
way around the planet, damn-it - we've got the same problem/
We're about to be the very cause of our own extinction/
if we don't choose to fight/
for human rights/
with forward thinking/
Emotions translated into deeds/
is what we need/
University cities where anyone can study FREE/
And you can help MAKE it happen, or you can HOPE so/
We are not "conscious", there is so much we don't know/




HOOK:

We've got the voice and power, and now the choice is ours/
