"2017" Lyrics

 

People listen to what I'm sayin'

It's time to accept the truth

That the times have changed

 

We've got to open up our hearts and brains

If we want to keep inside 

The freedom lane 

 

People I know this ain't the best we can be

We've got to think about what our children's eyes have seen

In the year 2017

 

We've got to open up our hearts and brains 

Open up our hearts and brains 

Think about what we preach and say

Think about what our children's eyes have seen

In the year 2017

 

This is a war waged with thought control

No tanks or planes just thought control

Open up your hearts and brains

If you want to keep inside the freedom lane

 

Hate and fear ain't no vaccine

We've got to think about what our children's eyes have seen

In the year 20...20...17

 

2017...

2018...

2019...

 

How long, how long?

How long, how long?

 

Hindsight’s 20/20

Hindsight’s 20/20
