ANOTHER DAY GOES BY

Distinguish the fires from last night bring justice to the light

Fighting through the social misery just to make it to the right side of history

 

Another day goes by and I am still here still alive

Turn up Marvin and sing along here the words still strong

 

Fighting in the streets a brother on his knees for justice and peace

All the while the leaders continue their deceit lacking any dignity

What matters in a nation of lies blame-shifting left to right

 

Another day goes by and I am still here still alive

Turn up Stevie and sing along here the words still strong

 

Peace is not just a dream it lives inside everybody

Normal is just a myth when there is selective justice 

We can be better than this when there is forgiveness

 

Another day goes by and I am still here still alive

Turn up Billie bring the song to history

 

Maybe you need the blues just to see the good inside of you

It is a backlash when you don't give a helping hand

This world was made for you and every man

"Peace is not just a dream it lives inside everybody
Normal is just a myth when there is selective justice..."
