One Day 02:48
One day It won't matter anymore one day it won't matter anymore cause one day we'll all see so much more than the surface of things and I'm gonna be there when the change comes in one day I ain't gonna hurt anymore one day I ain't gonna hurt any more one day the whole world ain't gonna hurt anymore and I'm gonna be there when the change comes in 'cause one day I ain't gonna cry anymore one day I ain't gonna cry anymore 'cause one day we'll all see so much more then the surface of things and I'm gonna be there and I hope you'll be there 'cause I'm gonna be there when the change comes in

Shout a little louder now, I can't hear you over the sirens helicopters overhead and all the silent people around me... say something but an image speaks a thousand words so they'll put the camera in your face as the undercover police insight a riot and it comes up the news weeks later but for now they can deny it so shout shout shout all we can do is shout out shout shout shout shout out for now... sitting on the median next to a highway blocked by riot police thinking about old times, wondering when I'm gonna see you again always the same faces at our picnic demonstrations and I'm beginning to feel like being here is.... sigh... Yes we are here to vent our frustrations, to wait for the teargas with calm acceptance, to run when it comes and dance to some reggae and catch all our buses on time we are all islands surrounded we sit on the sidewalk, have lunch , throw some rocks and catch all our buses on time sitting on the median next to a graveyard full of riot police thinking about old times, wondering when I'm gonna see you again always the same faces at our picnic demonstrations and I'm beginning to feel like being here is.... meh...yeah...hmmm... sigh... and if this is what security means security means I have to leave this country if this is what prosperity means then bury me or carry me away bury me or carry me away... and I'm looking in the eyes of a man who's learned to see me as nothin' I'm looking in the eyes of a man who's looking right through me I'm looking in the eyes of a man who could've been you I'm looking in the eyes of a man who could've been you... could've been you could've been you who could've been who could've been you...

Said it's a long oh it's a long yes it's a long way down, but I'm going , woah... and it's a long oh it's a long yes it's a long way down, but I'm going , woah... they say all roads lead to freedom and all roads lead to somewhere worth going...(x2) if only I knew if only I knew where home was I wouldn't be by this riverside crying don't wanna be by this riverside crying but if all roads lead to home if all roads lead to home I needn't be by this riverside crying don't wanna be by this riverside crying ain't gonna stay by this riverside crying...
