[lyrics by Harry Conklin]
All the years, fears and tears from the past
Lessons for all to learn
Clinging to life,
how long will it all last?
As long as there is fire we'll burn
There's a hole in this world
A hole in the soul of mankind
The whole of this world
Is pulling down and leaving waste behind
Tell me, son, is the street where you call home?
a weapon calm your nerves?
Is your mother crying for a fix
While your father lays in the curb?
We must be brave
make another way
Culminate all the forces of this life
Hold them deep inside
Till one day time comes for its release
Time will change for you and I
Fill the hole in this world
Block the hole in the soul of mankind
The whole of this
Must be strong and change for all time
