The human race has become too big to flail.
There is a moral mutation running through society. Leadership as we’ve recently known it is dead. The only voice that can speak to our collective future is in the individual who feels the effects of our broken systems – the migrant farm-worker, the incarcerated immigrant youth, the child whose mother is working three jobs, the health care provider and the fast food worker. And this is not just in America. Worldwide, the crushing effects of a fear-driven, purposeless economy is trying to break our collective spirit.
Shout, shout, let it all outThese are the things we can do withoutCome on - I'm talking to youCome on
In these times, you shouldn't have to lose your soulIn black and white, we really, really ought to knowThose one-track minds that took you for a sleeping boyKiss them goodbye - you shouldn't have to jump for joyYou shouldn't have to jump for joy
You give your life, not thinking that it’s all for saleAs cold as ice - I hope we live to tell the taleI hope we live to tell the tale
And when we’ve taken down our guardwe can change our minds connected to an open heartConnected to an open heart
Shout, shout, let it all outThese are the things I can do withoutCome on - I'm talking to youCome on
I’m no genetics expert, but it appears that we have a moral mutation running through society. At this stage, it’s no one’s fault, but it’s everyone’s problem. There’s a fallacy that with each generation we become smarter. We are amazed by invention. But the Industrial Revolution and the machinery it birthed have slipped us into unconsciousness in the name of progress.
