lyrics

I don’t believe that our best days are all behind us
I know it seems a little bit grim
when the world’s getting warmer and the governments spy on us
the last thing we need
is another world war with a lot more firepower than before
and the coral reef bleached
and a president I want to impeach

and there’s a bully corporation holding closed door meetings
over what chemicals they’re gonna feed us
and here on the street there are people killing people
over different ideas about how to treat a fetus
in the name of Jesus
the name of freedom
the name of Shiva, the Buddha, Allah
in the name of the Dollar
now I don’t got a problem with
any other god you want to honor but you’ve got to be tolerant

for goodness sake, there’s seven billion of us
going on eight, you really think this place is gonna stay in any way the same?
I’m sorry everything is gonna change
yeah everything is gonna change
the systems that we have in place
they weren’t made for this
they weren’t made for this
they’re gonna break

but what breaks first?
This is what I think about in the early morning
and you can call me crazy
you can call me anything
‘cause really deeply truly
yeah really truly deeply

I don’t believe that our best days are all behind us
I may not see them, but I can certainly help to find them
and I’ve been trying to think of something else quite so worthwhile
but I’ve been coming up against wall after wall
I love this world
I love this world

and I don’t believe that our best days are all behind us
these story lines, I think are longer than we really understand
it’s not wonder we don’t really have a plan
but in the aftermath of the havoc that is happening
cracks through the blacktop the green of a brand new spring!
can you see it?
does it make you sing?
well I’ll tell you what it does for me,
is it makes me want to fight
for our kids kids kids kids kids kids kids kids kids kids kids kids kids
‘cause I don’t believe
that our best days are all behind us
