lyrics

I believe it's just about time
Coming up on the end of the line
Just past another roadblock sign
Leaning on its side
Burning in the sunshine

I take a turn for whatever it's worth
Where the pavement turns to dirt
Where the energy starts to perk
And the words give birth
to a new kind of earthling
I believe it's time
I believe it's time
We redefine what's normalized

I can take a scorpion sting
I can hear the butterfly wings
And the sound of the blackbirds singing
Coming through a bullhorn
Load and clear

To my neighbors on the east side
To my neighbors on the west side
All the neighbors on the north and south side
I think it's time we all look inside
I think it’s about time
I think it’s time
We redesign what's normalized

To all the souls who are graduating
A whole new world is out there waiting
Cause the old one is rapidly fading
You’ve got the tools
Go out and create it

I cannot stress the importance
To defeat and tear down the forces
Of the hate and the threat that t poses
If you choose love
than you already know this

There's a whole lot of brothers and sisters
Unable to hear all our messages
Who got a raw deal and feeling breathless
it's just fear, and fear’s defenseless
It is time
Just about time
We redesign what's normalized

There's a call to the young and the old
There's a call to the meek and the bold
A brand new story about to be told
about a dying world and how we fixed it
I believe it's time
I believe it's time
I believe it's time
We redesign what's normalized
We redesign what's normalized
