Oh yeah

In France, skinny man
Died of a big disease with a little name
By chance his girlfriend came across a needle
Soon she did the same

At home there are seventeen year old boys
And their idea of fun
Is being in a gang called The Disciples
High on crack, totin' a machine gun

Time

Hurricane Annie ripped the ceiling of a church
And killed everyone inside
You turn on the telly and every other story
Tellin' you somebody died

Sister killed her baby 'cause she could afford to feed it
They were sending rockets to the moon
September my cousin tried reefer for the very first time
Now he's doing horse, it's June

Time, time, yeah

It's silly no, when a rocket ship explodes
Everybody still want to fly
Some say a man ain't happy
Unless a man truly dies, oh why?

Time, time, time

Baby make a speech, star wars fly
Neighbors just shine it on
But if the night falls and a bomb falls
Then everybody sees dawn

Time, time

It's silly now, when a rocket ship explodes
Everybody still wants to fly
Some say a man ain't happy, truly, yeah
Until he dies, oh why?

Time, time, time, time

Sign o' the times mess with your mind
Hurry before it's too late
Let's fall in love, get married, have a baby
We'll call him Nate, if it's a boy

Time, time
Everybody, yeah
Sign o' the times
[Incomprehensible]
Time, sign o' the times

Don't you know we can change the world?
Don't you know every boy and every girl
Deserves to live life, deserves a peace of mind?
Sign o' the times

Don't you know we can change the world?
Don't you know every boy and every girl
Deserves to live life, deserves a peace of mind?
Sign o' the times

Don't you know we can change the world?
Don't you know every boy and every girl
Deserves to live life, deserves a peace of mind?
Sign o' the times
