The sun is setting and it's time for bed
But we can't sleep or even lay down
Cause there is something that you need to hear us say

All our worries are still in our heads
And all the trees are being cut down, down town
And on the news it's the fear that keeps us awake

We have to make them see clearly
Or in the end we'll all be paying dearly
How long has this been going on

Let the leaders say 'we know nothing'
Let them preach from up on their hill
When the people below want to change, if they can they will
You and me, and we'll make the world follow
You and me, and we'll make the world follow

We have to say it as one
Cause on our own no one will listen
Sing with me and they'll hear us from down below

We have to make them see it clearly
Or in the end we'll all be paying dearly

How long has this been going on

Let the leaders say 'we know nothing'
Let them preach from up on their hill
When the people below want to change, if they can they will
You and me, and we'll make the world follow
You and me, and we'll make the world follow
You and me, and we'll make the world follow

Bring marches over us
Now is the time
To welcome a new day
Open your eyes

We have to make them see it clearly
Or in the end we'll all be paying dearly
How long has this been going on

Let the leaders say 'we know nothing'
Let them preach from up on their hill
When the people below want to change, if they can they will
You and me, and we'll make the world follow
You and me, and we'll make the world follow
You and me, and we'll make the world follow
