In a world of plenty
Evil minds out of control
People’s lives in misery
Starving children in the cold
Even in our prosperous lands
People live out on the streets

We need to realise the power in our hands
We need to realise the power in our hands

A planet for all living things
Slashed and burned by greed
A world of wars waged by the rich
To grab more than they need
Nations reduced to savage lands
People lives in dark despair

We’re on the brink of extinction 
Land and ocean poisoned with our waste
Environmental disasters continue
Entire cultures are displaced

Do our children’s futures
Mean less than our pathetic present needs
Are we so tied up in the lies were told
That we no longer have the power to be free
When will we stop our politicians riding rough shod over our democracies?
When will we stop the rich and powerful from destroying the planet anyway they please? 

We need to realise the power in our hands
