moonrise

something goes right
something always seems go wrong
can't get ahead sitting down but can't get
away from singing the same old songs

got a neighbor down the road working three jobs got three kids trying to do right
end up behind on bills everyday
can't sleep at night

read in the paper about another paper
mill shutting down
that's a whole lot of people out of work
that's a tough night in a tough tough town

next story over fat cat caught a fish
big as a whale print so much
bigger than the story below bout an out of work
miller and him tale

it's time
time for a revolution
time for a new solution
for a new moon to rise

it's all … something for us
all … to think about when
all we need is us, all we need is what we can
do … do for each other and
do … you understand what I
do my friend when I say what I do you know

it's time
time for a revolution
time for a new solution
for a new moon to rise

everybody knows the stump is
rotten to the core
who wants to go for a ride then
go round once more

they got us all treading
water nose up in the
air as they stare say
someone throw 'em a line in there

don't know nobody who ain't got
trouble paying the bills
don't know no one who has
had their fill

and I know a whole lot of
people you know
I know a whole lot of
people ready to sing

it's time
time for a revolution
time for a new solution
for a new moon to rise
