Lyrics:

Will I let this time
Define my state of mind?
Will I let the news
Be my only muse?
Will I let these leaders
Be my only meters
on how to live, love
work and die….

Will we swallow laws
just because?
Will we swallow fate
until it’s too late?
Will we swallow war
As nothing more
than a tragic chapter
in the human factor…

I can’t take it anymore
There’s gotta be a change for sure
I’m so sick of being numb
Would it make a difference if I gave you some of that
LOVE

Is difference of skin
an excuse to sin?
Is difference of faith
An excuse to hate?
does difference of land
define the man?
Or all we all the same
Beneath this losing game

We won’t take it anymore
There’s gonna be a change for sure
We’re so done with being numb
Give me some, let me give you some of that
LOVE
Some say that hope is a fool just wasting time
I say that hope is a prayer that can change… that can change mankind

What about Love   
LOVE
   
When we gonna treat every heart that beats with
LOVE
