Title---- Wishful thinking-----By Allan P Stevens
-
Watching this broken world today
All this hate and deep mistrust
I wish all leaders could find a way
To kick false ideals into touch
Place them all in a great big box
Buried so deep no-one can undo
Well, I know its wishful thinking
But, let’s work to make it true
-
Religious bigotry inside their head
Every faith must make a stand
Ask if humanity has been misled
Covering us all in shifting sand?
Do gospel teachings heal the pain?
Of those in darkness on their own
Well, I know its wishful thinking
But, let’s work to reclaim our soul
-
The soldier man with his gun in hand
Will stand and fight to kill the foe
He takes his orders from the man
Whose name he does not know
He don’t ask questions, he just obeys
As politicians would destroy us all
Well, I know its wishful thinking
But, the war machine must fall
-
There are good men with great ideas
Most of which never shall be heard
Those in charge, paranoid with fear
Refuse to listen to a single word
Hiding behind doors in ivory towers
They no longer see what’s real
Well, I know its wishful thinking
But, we all deserve a better deal
-
I know its wishful thinking
We all deserve a better deal
-
