Youth Asylum – It'll Be Alright lyrics

One nation under God indivisible
with liberty and justice for all

It was just the other day oh boy
A kid had a gun instead of havin a toy
And he didn't run from his brother
Cuz he thought it was game
And the ending is just the same
You gotta get ourselves together boy
I'm lookin for love and im lookin for joy
I'm lookin for peace on the streets
Can you count on your brother
Can we make a reality
When Marvin said "What's Goin' On" he said it right
So we'll keep movin on we wont give up the fight

And it'll be ooh yea alright
Cuz were the Young Americans
Young Americans Young Americans we are the Young Americans
Alright to be a Young American
(yea yea, that's right, Young Americans, lets get it right this time...)

It was just the other day oh boy
Tell me our lives were bein destroyed
And there is no hope for the ghetto
Cuz the leaders don't care
And they're leavin us in despair
Its come to me in a better way oh boy
No time to be cruel nor time to be coy
We all took a pledge to the flag
And we count on each other
Cuz each other is all we had
When Marvin said "What's Goin' On" he said it right
So we'll keep pressin on to make the future bright

Its gonna be alright
Cuz were the Young Americans
Young Americans Young Americans we are the Young Americans
Alright to be a Young American
Together we'd stand
(oh together...)
Divided we'd fall
(oh we'd fall, we'd fall...)
But when we stand strong
(when we'll stand strong...)
We fight through it all
(fight through it all...)
Tomorrow is new for the red white and blue
(Tomorrow is new...)
So let's show them why
Without a scythe (?)

Wake up wake up wake up
Young America awake from the sleeping state
Racism add fuel to the fire of hate (that's right...)
Let's extinguish the flame with the waters of love
Let peace spread like the wings of a dove
The earth is dyin
And our lives are slowly endin
Open moves of despair
Scar tissue you never mended
So everybody join in the revolution
Don't be caught in the problem
Lets make a solution
Unh clap your hands, clap your hands
Young America clap your hands
Young Americans, (We...) Young Americans (are the...)
We are the Young Americans
(Young Americans...)
Alright oh so hold on
Hold on just a little while longer
(bout to hold on yall...)
Hold on just a little while longer
(one more time unh...)
Hold on just a little while longer
(two times two times...)
Young Americans Young Americans we are the Young Americans
(its gonna be...)
It'll be alright hold on just a little while longer
Young Americans Young Americans we are the Young Americans
It'll be alright yea we're the Young Americans Young Americans Young Americans
It's gonna be a bright day oh boy...
