IT’S TIME…FOR A CHANGE. OUR GOALS…ARE OUT OF RANGE
BEHIND THE MASK A STRANGER LURKS WITHIN.
AND I SWEAR…IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE
MY SOUL IS PUT TO EASE. MY HEART…WAKES WITH TRUTH AND BELIEF.
OUT OF THE SHADOWS A LIGHT SHOOTS OFF ITS BEAM
I SWEAR…IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE
THERE’LL BE NO LIGHT WITHOUT THE DARKNESS.
THERE’S NO DAY WITHOUT THE NIGHT.
WE FILL OUR SPACE WITH EMPTY WORDS.
WHEN TIMES REQUIRE THE BEST OF ALL
…YOU BETTER DO WHAT’S RIGHT.
I’M ALRIGHT…ALL NIGHT AND DAY. HIGH AND LOW…THERE ARE MANY WAYS.
TO FILL THE BOWL WITH THE FRUITS OF OUR DESIRES.
YET I KNOW…IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE
MAY I HELP…WITH LOVING KINDNESS. HIDDEN REWARDS…COME FROM DEEDS AND WORDS.
WHEN THE WHEEL’S COMPLETE WE’LL REACH SALVATION.
AND I KNOW….IT’S TIME FOR CHANGE
THE POETS AND THE PREACHERS
SING YOUR PRAISES FROM THE ROOFS
YOUR SOULFUL INTROSPECTION
TURNS PRETENDERS INTO FOOLS.
RETURNING TO YOUR CENTER,
DESCENDING UPON YOUR TRUTHS.
ON THIS DAY OF OUR REMEMBRANCE,
CAN I DWELL ON THE THOUGHT OF YOU?
PLEASE FORGIVE ME LORD, FORGIVE ME,
FOR THE ERRORS OF MY WAYS.
WILL YOU WEIGH THE GOOD AND EVIL,
WILL I EVER WALK AWAY?
I SEEK YOUR ABSOLUTION
AND PRAY FOR THE WORDS TO SAY.
ON THIS DAY OF AWE I THINK
I SAW SIGNS OF ANOTHER DAY.
ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE SEVENTH MONTH,
A SACRED BLAST WAS HEARD.
THE VILLAGE WAS AWAKENED AND
THE SHOPKEEPERS KEPT THEIR WORD.
I AM RESTLESS, I AM LONELY
I JUST SEEK A TIME OF MIRTH.
AT THIS MOMENT OF REFLECTION
I WANT TO FLY WITH SOUTHWARD BIRDS
DARKNESS FALLS AND SHADOWS HOVER,
ON MY LONELIEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
MY TIME HAS GONE AND WILL COME, AGAIN,
WHEN I HOLD MY LOVED ONE NEAR.
FROM THIS NARROW PLACE I CALLED OUT
AND WAIT FOR THE GENTLE SHOVE.
I DON’T FEAR NO HARM OR EVIL
I’VE TAKEN REFUGE IN MY LOVE.
