Lyrics

Lately I've been thinking things aren't going as they should,
We've all lost hope in the top man,
'cause he's not doing us any good.
I wanna know that I'll be safe when I step outside,
Don't wanna let the bad news
Take away my right to decide.

You shouldn't let the big-wigs dictate your darkest fears,
After their fat lies and scandal,
You'd be going back 50 years.
All our fears are hearsay and so they become real,
And the press will take advantage
Of our ability to feel.

I wonder when we got so cynical,
We used to be so good at having faith.
Trust in your neighbour it's not difficult,
Life is a change we all should make.

Television takes us to that cold place within,
We are smothered by our 'what-ifs'
And consumed by our possible sins.
Maybe if we watched a little less and talked a whole lot more,
We'd create the understanding
To negate the need for war.

There are still good people in this land,
Who live their lives just as they always planned,
It's a shame the rest of us can't see past the ends of our noses.
If we could try to make a bigger change,
Picture perfect scenes could be arranged,
Don't know about you but I want a peaceful world,
A peaceful world.

(Repeat verse 1 and bridge 1)
