Change

A thousand monks stand up and pray
An army in red, showing another way
See how in every nation risen
How low & how many people have fallen
 
Change, Change, its time things change
(Left- Right, Left- Right, Left- Right, Left- Right)
Change, it’s left to us, it’s right to change
(Left- Right, Left- Right, Left- Right, Left- Right)
 
The Buddha prays, the world watches in pity
How do nations grow when their hearts grow empty?
“Grant us paradise, freed from hatred & greed
Where people stay, as soldiers leave”
 
Change, Change, its time things change
(Left- Right, Left- Right, Left- Right, Left- Right)
Change, it’s left to us, it’s right to change
(Left- Right, Left- Right, Left- Right, Left- Right)
 
It’s a killing of a people who won’t fight in defense
As whole worlds unite to ignore their conscience
Maybe this is why the ocean of compassion returns
So much in us is still sub human. Oh, how it burns!
 
Change, Change, its time things change
Change, its left to us, its right to change
