Maybe it's true what they say about it
Maybe we can't make the ends meet
Maybe we'll all have to do without it
Maybe this world's just incomplete
But we all look for truth in this life
Searching from different sides
If it's so hard living in a desperate world
We all do the best that we can

Chorus: Some people see a change
Some will remain the same
Others will live their lives under the gun
Some see the road as clear
Some say the end is here
They say it's a hopeless fight
But I say, I gotta try

Maybe there's too much to think about
Maybe there ain't nothin' left to say
But if our time's really runnin' out
Then this ain't no time to run away
Cause we're destined to look for truth in this life
Searching with tearful eyes
If it's so hard livin' in a desperate world
Then tell me, why was I born?

Chorus: Some people see a change
Some will remain the same
Others will their lives under the gun
Some see the road as clear
Some say the end is here
They say it's a hopeless fight
But I say, I gotta try

Lonely, living so lonely
It ain't too late to turn it all around

Chorus: Some people see a change
Some will remain the same
Others will live their lives under the gun
Some see the road as clear
Some say the end is here
They say it's a hopeless fight
But I say, I gotta try and change

Repeat

(Someone's tryin'
Someone's cryin' -- cryin' out
Still we live under the gun)
