Twenty five years and my life is still. Trying to get up that great big hill of hope For a destination.
I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man For whatever that means
* And so I cry sometimes When I'm lying in bed Just to get it all out
What's in my head And I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning And I step outside And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream at the top of my lungs What's going on?
** And I say, hey… hey… I said hey, what's going on.
And I say, hey… hey… I said hey, what's going on.
And I try, oh my god do I try. I try all the time, in this institution.
And I pray, oh my god do I pray. I pray every single day For a revolution
