The World We Left Behind - Had Enough Yet?
It’s a sky the shade of iron, it’s a storm just out of sight
They say the sun may shine tomorrow but it’s going to rain light hell tonight
Even when there’s no denying thunder clouds or rising floods
Still some won’t believe what lies before their eyes til they’re sinking in the mud
Have you ever stopped to wonder, does it ever cross your mind
That there’s a world in which we struggle and a world we left behind.
What has happened to the promise; to the brightest and the best?
Yesterday we had the grandest dreams. Have they all been laid to rest?
Are we going to disregard the rest?
I believe do unto others as you’d have them do for you
Nothing else fulfills with so much grace, so simple and so true
Have you ever stopped to wonder…
Remember our beginnings, every hope so bright and new
And every shining possibility for the many not the few
Some believe there’ll be a rapture and those with faith will disappear
Could it be it’s all mythology? Just a prayer to ease our fear?
Do you see those golden slippers? Do you hear that glory train?
Or do you make your peace right here, right now, in your laughter and your pain
If you’re able…if you’re Cain.
Remember our beginnings? Every hope so bright and new?
Every shining possibility for the many not the few.
Do you ever stop to wonder? Does it ever cross your mind
That there’s a world in which we struggle and a world we left behind…
