Tired done with politicians
Paper shuffle no decisions
Wastin' years spent baby kissin'
Shakin' hands while timer's tickin'

If this world wide population
Using love instead of hatin'
Raise the money raise the patience
We stop war we fix each nation

We can do......
Impossible
We can do......
What's not been done
All it takes......
A world awake.....
Biological
We can do......
Impossible

We all need to act as one
Stop all fighting overcome
Our world's best can get it done
Fight with vision not with guns

Till each obstacle's removed
And every voice is listened to
Our planet saved from this abuse
Is a daydream overdue

We can do......
Impossible
We can do......
What's not been done
All it takes......
A world awake....
Biological
We can do......
Impossible

No religions no agendas
No flag wavers, no pretenders
No profiteers and no closed minds
When self interest's put aside...

We can do......
Impossible
We can do......
What's not been done
All it takes......
A world awake....

Mike, that reminds of John Lennon. Would need his type of communicator skills/talent to sing it with his kind of strong purpose.

Protest songs, or peace songs, etc, seem to be an era gone by. I bet some Indie band though, who doesn't write that much would take that on and put melody and music to it. Maybe search the bands who have been on here, or in the award's competitions.

Best wishes,
John

Oh yeah that Beatle thing runs through everything I do John; it's part of my DNA. I don't consciously invoke it, it just appears. I don't copy their style intentionally, as I try to do my own thing. I do write all my own music John, (although I think I'd collaborate on something if I found the right person on certain things) It's certainly a good suggestion. I never know what I'm going to write, it just comes out. Oddly, (because I don't do this often) I rewrote the lines and structure in this extensively till I settled on this pared down version. I do re-write and polish everything but not to the extent this one was. It came together when I thought of Bob Marley and that was the push I needed. (making it simpler) It's a message song but hopefully not too preachy, so I'll have to keep the music "light".
Very kind of you to comment John, thank you!

Hey AJ! I'm not the type of guy to go around saying the sky is falling. I'm positive. I wish there was a way to bring people together with Earth and humanity as a common denominator. I'm well aware it's naive thinking, but occasionally the times dictate what might happen. (Berlin Wall for example)
Appreciate your read....

Hi Travis!
I certainly appreciate that; thank you!

This is a nice read, 9ne. I'm always a bit skeptical as to how "message" lyrics translate into song and whether they can resonate and stick. But this is a solid write--will look forward to hearing how it sounds.

Regards,

Deej

Thanks Deej! Yes, we need the message without the preach. Not easy.

Hi Mike.
I don't know about Beatles. As I was reading through it I was humming John Prine's "That's the way the world goes round".
No bad thing.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

I remember seeing Prine back in the 70's Vic. I knew him by "Dear Abby" but after buying "The Divine Miss M" album by Bette Midler I saw that a song I loved called "Hello In There" was written by Prine.

Thanks for reading-always good to hear from you!
