where did we go wrong
something's going on
walking' 'round in fear
what happen to the light
and all of those who tried
to keep an open mind
like Martin Luther King
and what Marvin Gaye would say
it seems like what they left us with is gone
lets dream about a place
where we live freely
in a world where no one's hungry
where a child can grow in peace
and everyone can finally be in harmony
wouldn't that be illuminating
wouldn't that be illuminating
so when tomorrow comes
I will feel the sun
even when it rains
with some help from up above
I will spread the love
bury all the hate
like Martin Luther King
and what Marvin Gaye would say
it seems like what they left us with is gone
lets dream about a place
where we live freely
in a world where no one's hungry
where a child can grow in peace
and everyone can finally be in harmony
wouldn't that be illuminating
wouldn't that be illuminating
what's going on
what's going on
what's going on
tell me what's going on
tell me what's going on yeh
lets dream about a place
where we live freely
in a world where no one's hungry
where a child can grow in peace
and everyone can finally be in harmony
wouldn't that be illuminating
lets dream about a place
where we live freely
in a world where no one's hungry
where a child can grow in peace
and everyone can finally be in harmony
wouldn't that be illuminating
wouldn't that be illuminating
wouldn't that be illuminating
what's going on
what's going on
what's going on
what's going on
we need you
we need you
we need you now
