Hold on for a minute
Can we, take it back for a minute?
I don't like where we've come
On this road we've begun

Sit back for a minute
Stop and, look around why you're in it
Don't you see what they've done
While we see no return?

They say they've got it under control
But the more we grow
The more it seems so foreign
This land this place sovereign

Don't you think it's time we woke up to see
The powers that be
Are really in you and me?
Emancipate yourself and be free

Can we go back to a place once new, just me and you?
Can we go back to what was so good? Please say we could
Please say we could

Don’t you remember the time
When time was yours and mine
And we focused on the things that matter
Paid no mind to the noise and the clatter?

Money wasn't a God
And though we had little man we had a lot
In the way of love and understanding
Oh my god I can't comprehend it no more

Lookin’ good while you look around
But ain't no love that can be found
When it all comes down to the wire
Are you really gonna put your soul up for hire?

Don't you think it's time to wake up to see
The powers that be
Are really in you and me?
Emancipate yourself and be free
