THE WORLD KEEPS ON CHANGING

THE WORLD KEEPS ON CHANGING
THE WORLD KEEPS ON CHANGING
NONE STOP PLANNING
STILL JUMPING AND SHOWING
WE KEEP ON GETTING UP AND DOING
MAKING IT THROUGH THE DAY WINNING
OR ARE WE SETTING HERE LOOSING

WE’VE GONE FROM WHITE
TO BLACK AS NIGHT
WOMEN OR STILL FIGHTING
WHO’S WRONG TRYING TO GET OUR LEFT OUT
QUIETING OUR PAIN AND STILL HIDING THE RIGHT
SO WHEN YOU GO FROM WHITE TO BLACK
AND HIT MAN KIND LIKE THAT
THE WORLD IS FULL OF COLORS
NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE WHATS A COLOR
TO ME WE ARE EACH A STAR
JUST TAKE THE TIME TO BELIEVE
AFTER ALL YOU ARE SOMEONE LIKE ME
RED, WHITE, AND JUST A LITTLE BIT BLUE
YET YOU AS PEOPLE STILL KNOWING WHAT TO DO

ARE WE WORKING TOGETHER
OR ARE WE LOOSING ONE ANOTHER
AS WE TRY TO GET UP HIGH IN TO THIS WORLD
WE WERE BORN BY JUST A GIRL
WHY IS THEIR A SUCH THING CALL WAR
FIGHTING HARD TO GET THERE IN A TRUCK NOT CAR
YET I CARE THE NEW KIDS IN A TAXI MAMA VAN

YES WE ARE LIKE ANIMALS SOME WHAT WILD
BUT DON’T YOU LOVE OUR SMILES
IT’S TIME TO COME HOME TO SWEET HOME
STOP HURTING AND BEING ALONE
YES YOU CAN MAKE IT HARD ON YOUR OWN
YOU NEED TO CARE ABOUT THE UNKNOWN
GOING WAY OUT INTO SPACE
DO WE STILL HAVE PLANS FOR THE HUMAN RACE
I’M NOT GOING TO REACH OUT AND STOP
I’M HERE TO STAND TALL AND TAKE THAT VERY SMALL SHOT
THE WORLD KEEPS ON CHANGING
I’M STILL HERE JUST PLANNING
