Turn It Around (McMorris Tim)

I’ve been going round the world And I’ve been looking for revival Cause what I see it’s critical For all our survival People turning on each other Love is put on the shelf In exchange for some hate And some greed to get wealth The worlds become a crazy place It’s every one for themselves So go and grab all you can get Because it’s gonna run out We’ve been fed that lie so long now We believe without doubt It seems it’s coming to a close before we figure it out How many years will we live this way We just sit back and hope one day That all our cares will go away And that everything will be ok Without any change, we can’t have satisfaction Don’t tell me to relax when you won’t go take any action But even with these problems, I’m the eternal optimist I keep on pushin forward When it hurts, and when I’m sick of it I sit and then I think a bit Get up again and recommit To be a part of something that can bring about some benefit Gotta bring change, from the inside out Gotta stand up, lift our voice and shout Gotta turn it around From the street of the cities, to the government games From the homeless in the shelters to the buildings in flames We gotta turn it around From the prisons filed with people, money runnin the game To the orphans round the world who need a family name We gotta turn it around From the women on the streets, who are looking for love To the junkies who are trapped, tryin to give up the drug We gotta turn it around Have you ever looked outside and didn’t like what you see Or am I the only one who sees the things we could be If we made more effort, then I think you’d agree That we could make the world a better place, a place that is free Life is really what you make of it, you gotta give and take a bit Someone’s always up, and someones always in a pit Someones has too much, and someone dreams of more And someones wondering why they didn’t see this all before And every now and then, something comes to try and keep me down But I keep on movin forward, try again, and rise up from the ground And if I have to man, I’ll even will go another time around Until I finally overcome, no more ties to keep my bound And now I’m walking on sound, with the music as my cover Thought that I was out of tricks, look again, here’s another Even with a thousand crashes, I will rise up from the ashes And do something with my time before my eyes, my life flashes Gotta bring change, from the inside out Gotta stand up, lift our voice and shout Gotta turn it around From the street of the cities, to the government games From the homeless in the shelters to the buildings in flames We gotta turn it around From the prisons filed with people, money runnin the game To the orphans round the world who need a family name We gotta turn it around From the women on the streets, who are looking for love To the junkies who are trapped, tryin to give up the drug We gotta turn it around
