THE GREATER GOOD

 

 

FLOWERS WILTING ALL ABOUT

EVERYBODY'S HEART IS FILLED WITH DOUBT 

SURVIVAL MEANS ALL 

NO ONE CAN STAND TALL

WHILE WE'RE WORKING TO SEE 

JUST HOW HARD WE CAN FALL 

 

WE'VE BEEN MOVING LIKE GAME 

ON THE OPEN RANGE

 SOME ARE HUNTING AT EACH OTHER 

NO THEY'RE NOT TAKING AIM 

LIKE THE JUNGLES OF OLD 

IT'S A FIGHT FOR CONTROL 

WE SHOULD BE FIGHTING 

FOR THE ANSWERS 

DEEP WITHIN OUR SOULS

 

 

MILITARY CONCEIT TALKIN' UP WAR

WHAT WE FACE IS DEFEAT WHILE WE'RE SETTLING SCORES

 IT'S UP TO YOU AND ME FOR SURE

DON'T YOU THINK WE OUGHT TO DO SOMETHING MORE 

 

FOR THE GREATER GOOD 

 

 

[GREATER GOOD]

 

 

YESTERDAY'S FACTS CAN'T BE TAKEN BACK 

 

THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS 

IS TO MAKE THE FUTURE HAPPEN

WE'VE GOT TO CLOSE UP THE GAPS

FILL IN THE CRACKS 

SO WE COULD ALL BE BETTER UNDERSTOOD

FOR THE GREATER GOOD

 

 [GREATER GOOD]

 

WE'VE SEEN CITIES AND TOWNS BURNIN' DOWN

PEOPLE FIGHTING FOR GOD 

YOU KNOW HE CAN'T BE PROUD 

TO SEE US ACTING SO ODD

 TAKIN' HIS WORD IN VAIN 

LIVING IN PAIN

WHEREVER HE IS 

HE MUST THINK WE'RE INSANE

 

AT THE RATE THAT WE"VE BEEN GOING

 IT'S A GIVEN 

WE'LL SOON BE GONE 

WE'VE GOT TO GET IT TOGETHER 

IF WE'RE GONNA MOVE ON 

IT'S UP TO US TO BE SURE 

TO DO WHAT WE SHOULD SO 

WE CAN MAKE IT WORK FOREVER

FOR THE GREATER GOOD

 

 

NO EFFORT CAN BE WASTED 

WHEN IT COMES TO HUMAN NEED 

IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT 

WHAT WE NEED'S A REPRIEVE

'CAUSE TOO OFTEN WE'VE BEEN GUILTY OF HUMAN GREED 

WHEN YOU KNOW WE SHOULD BE PLANTING A SEED

FOR THE GREATER GOOD

 

PEOPLE CARRYING SCARS FEEL THE UNDERLYING PAIN

BUILDING NUCLEAR BOMBS FROM ARIZONA TO THE UKRAINE 

IT'S EASIER TO FIGHT 

THAN TO WORK THROUGH THE STRAIN 

BUT IMAGINE IF SOMEHOW WE COULD

FOR THE GREATER GOOD
