Upside down

There’s a map of the world

and it’s going round

the whole damn thing

is upside down

Rivers run wild

storm clouds break

black and heavy

in the thunder’s wake

A song rings out

from a window sill

in the evening air

so calm and still

Voices join in

and bells they ring

welcome new friends

and the hope they bring

Wake up world

to a new day dawning

take it as a sign

take it as a warning

One last chance

to get things right

to change the rules

to set the light

What you gonna do

to join the race

meet the challenge

face to face

What you gonna do

to cure these ills

take a lot more than

a pocket full’a pills
