Well, I went searching
For something I could believe
So I turned on the TV
I was fed hypocrisy
Leading me towards a sea of confusion

I heard a voice
Ringing like music in the air
Breaking hearts most everywhere
All the people in despair
Cry out for justice to be fair to every people

Saying let's get free, let's get free
Don't just believe in what you hear
Don't just believe in what you see
Let's get free, let's get free
You've gotta open up your mind
'Cause truth is what you need
Oh, truth is what you need

All the love
Can prop you up and make you stand
Some are sinking in the sand
With all that silver in their hand
Take a message to that man
That wisdom is power

And tell me now
Do you have Allah on your side?
Or is it Jesus, or your pride?
Will it get you through the night?
Every man has to find something to believe in

Let's get free, let's get free
You gotta believe in what you feel
And feel what you believe
Let's get free, let's get free
You can open up your heart
'Cause love is all you need
Oh, love is all you need

Before the dawn
Comes the darkest hour of night
You either walk into the light
Or you turn and close your eyes
And fade into a dreamless sleep and hide

Well every human
Is gonna laugh and sometimes cry
But every tear that fills your eyes
Falls with the weight of sacrifice
Forgiveness is the pain of disappointment

Let's get free, let's get free
Don't just believe in what you hear
Don't just believe in what you see
Let's get free, let's get free
Everything's as it should be
So faith is all you need
Oh, peace is all you need
Oh, truth is all you need, yeah

What the world needs now is love, love, love
What the world needs now is love, love, love
What the world needs now is love, love, love
