lyrics

You look to the left
You look to the right
Everywhere you look
There’s a fight in sight
A fight to get by, a fight to servive
Sometimes it’s a fight just to stay alive
And you wonder who can thrive
In a world so confused
Where half the people living have been battered and abused
Where the rich take all
And the poor get none
Life in general don’t seem much fun
When it’s all been done the good and the bad
Some people get ahead, some people get had

Were troubadours traveling
With open hearts unraveling
The mystery of life and where we’ve been
Learning how to love again

The mind is like soil
Your got to plant a seed
Then water it with faith
Don’t water it with greed
Your dream is like a garden
You know you got to weed it
And the flower is the knowing
That faith will feed
And the power of the truth
If we can only heed it
Is knowing that we get what we need
When we need it...
Say power of the truth
Give a listen to the youth, give a listen to the youth
And we can all do better then just get by
Cause there’s more to this life then meets the eye

Sometimes life can make you faint
To be sharp like a knife or soft like a saint
Or a master piece of rainbow paint
To find life like it is or life like it ain’t
On the other side no where to hide
When you stand on the hand of the great divide
With a body of light or earthen clay
With nothing to think or something to say
With your future bright like the dawn of day
Or done like the night when the suns gone away
You can breath in life, or you can breath in death
But a life without a dream is a waste of breath...
