what can we do?


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.
