Story

It is my belief that there are plenty of things wrong the world.  A step in the right direction would be if each of us simply did the right thing.  Every time.  

Lyrics

Let's talk about the state of the world; everything's screwed up
leaders lie, ethics die, living seems so tough
take a look around, see what I see - misery, anger and doubt
unemployment rising, economy dying - relief can't be found
So how do we fix it? What comes next? Is a revolution on the way?
Do we need to fight for what we know is right?
There's always a price to pay.
Things don't have to be like this; it's not how it has to be
Our world can heal, here's the deal:
We just got to do the right thing.

Let's talk about politics; how our country bleeds
our souls are sold for corporate gold; it feeds the war machine
there's war on terror, war on drugs, endless wars overseas
it all solves nothing, problems keep coming, driven by nothing but greed
Can we fix it? Can we get that done? Is a revolution on the way?
Do we have to fight for what we know is right?
Are we willing to pay the price?
Things don't have to be like this; it's not how it has to be
Our world can heal, here's the deal:
We just got to do the right thing.

Let's talk about religion; what it means to me
blind faith for its own sake, I'd rather be free
manipulation, control through fear - men of the cloth fondling little boys
preachers preach; pray on the weak when they're at their weakest point
Is it worth fixing? Can we be saved? Is a revolution what we need?
People love to fight for what they think is right
I have no faith in what they believe
Things don't have to be like this; it's not how it has to be
Our world can heal, here's the deal:
We just got to do the right thing.
