C thompson, j kravetz, and k reid

If you wanna feed all the children
Then start by feeding one
And if you wanna find a mountain
To build your dreams upon

You need love (the heart to care)
Give me strength (the nerve to dare)

It's gonna be great when we get there

Take the first step the hardest to take
Breaking away
Take the first step whatever it takes
All the way
And you're already there

If you wanna change the system
You better build a better one
You're gonna meet resistance
But the time will come

You need hope (the will to learn)
Don't give up (the tide will turn)
