[QUOTE]I wanna be better than oxygen

So you can breathe when you're drowning and weak in the knees

I wanna speak louder than Ritalin

For all the children who think that they've got a disease

I wanna be cooler than t.v.

For all the kids that are wondering what they are going to be

We can be stronger than bombs

If you're singing along and you know that you really believe

We can be richer than industry

As long as we know that there's things that we don't really need

We can speak louder than ignorance

Cause we speak in silence every time our eyes meet.

On and on, and on, and on it goes

The world it just keeps spinning

Until i'm dizzy, time to breathe

So close my eyes and start again anew.

I wanna see through all the lies of society

To the reality, happiness is at stake

I wanna hold up my head with dignity

Proud of a life where to give means more than to take

I wan't to live beyond the modern mentality

where paper is all that you're really taught to create

Do you remember the forgotten america?

Justice, equality, freedom to every race?

Just need to get past all the lies and hypocrisy

Make up and hair to the truth behind every face

Then look around to all the people you see,

How many of them are happy and free?

I know it sounds like a dream

But it's the only thing that can get me to sleep at night

I know it's hard to believe

But it's easy to see that something here isn't right

I know the future looks dark

But it's there that the kids of today must carry the light.

On and on, and on, and on it goes

The world it just keeps spinning

Until i'm dizzy, time to breathe

So close my eyes and start again anew.

If i'm afraid to catch a dream

I weave your baskets and i'll float them down the river stream

Each one i weave with words i speak to carry love to your relief.

I wanna be better than oxygen

So you can breathe when you're drowning and weak in the knees

I wanna speak louder than Ritalin

For all the children who think that they've got a disease

I wanna be cooler than t.v.

For all the kids that are wondering what they are going to be

We can be stronger than bombs

If you're singing along and you know that you really believe

We can be richer than industry

As long as we know that there's things that we don't really need

We can speak louder than ignorance

Cause we speak in silence every time our eyes meet.

On and on, and on, and on it goes

The world it just keeps spinning

Until i'm dizzy, time to breathe

So close my eyes and start again anew[/QUOTE
