Change For Change

An angel waits for all of us up there in the heaven
And down here on this lonely street
Good and evil sometimes meet

Change for change sake
Change in the government
Change the environment
Change your life
Otherwise you’re gonna witness
Look on powerless
While the elements turn up the heat
When the change hit the street
And while we’re on the subject standing in the street
Hey buddy can you spare some change for me

Change for the world’s sake
Transform and integrate
Adapt for the future, change your path
Help eliminate poverty, save humanity
So the future generations can inherit the land
And while we’re on the subject of our fellow man
Buddy can you lay some change in my hand

I don’t live life, life lives me
Always has always will be
Time to change history
Shine on through our misery
Change for change sake, everybody fighting for the same dollar
That’s living in the free world

Change for change sake, rearrange the landscape
Shape your identity, change the world
Otherwise you’re gonna witness, look on powerless
When the future generations turn and wipe out history
And while we’re on the subject of man’s destiny
I want you to give your change to me

I don’t live life, life lives me
Always has always will be
Like a ship lost at sea
Shine on through this misery
Change for change sake
For angels and demons, billionaires and beggars
Are living in the free world
