lyrics

Be The Change

Intro - Kurt Allen
It's all about changes, it's all about changes
How life re-arranges, how life re-arranges

1st verse - Kurt Allen
I've met many people and made many friends
The kind that is real, the kind that pretends
But I've never met someone who didn't want to see
A little change in the world
I've been many places, seen many faces
Mixed with all races, dealt with all cases
But I've never met someone who didn't want to see
A little change in the world

Prechorus - Kurt Allen
Everybody wants to see a change in everybody else
Nobody wants to see that change begins with themselves

Chorus - Kurt Allen
We all want to change the world
But we don't want to make changes
We all want to change the world
But we don't like re-arranging

2nd verse - Force
They say the pot calls the kettle
Who can settle for this current currency condition
Transition comes with ambition
And if you can’t take a stance plus plan
on abandoning ship before it sails in itself is a loss
Often the thought crosses my mind
If we all could combine outline a design to refine
Finally you’ll find humankind could improve
starting with you, the movement’s inside
Allusions aside all the rules are devised to divide
Conquer your fears realize
In the eyes of the Almighty all of us bound tightly
Bound to be better after metamorphosis right

3rd Verse - Kurt Allen
I don't mean to pretend, neither to chide
And I do not intend to insult your pride
Live your life in love and you're gonna see
A little change in the world
Bless up the blamers, the call namers
The defamers, they're all the same as
Baptize them in love and you're gonna see
A little change in the world

Prechorus

Chorus

4th Verse - Ian I
Change what? I wanna change your policies
Change what? I wanna speak more openly
About what? to be the change I want to see
I wanna see a life living more honestly
So say what am I doing you can ask yourself
Because so much people never really face themselves
About what? you're living up your life for wealth,
You set aside your health for things upon the shelf
I've seen too many people bringing life to shame
And I'm lookin at myself to see if I'm to blame
Nut I'm just doing my part don't wanna cause no pain
Got an answer for the riddle playing with my brain

Prechorus

Chorus
