Lyrics (Analysis)

Analyzed are //

I must have dreamed a thousand dreams


//I have had a lot of hope
Been haunted by a million screams


//A lot of things have hindered me
But I can hear the marching feet


//A war is starting
They're moving into the street
//They are coming for us



Now, did you read the news today?


//Has anyone told you?
They say the danger has gone away


//They claim the war has ended
But I can see the fire's still alight


//Yet we still see people fighting
They're burning into the night
//and they will continue to fight



There's too many men, too many people


//Because there is too much people
Making too many problems


//They are the reason for the conflict
And there's not much love to go around


//And few people actually care
Can't you see this is a land of confusion?
//We are all dumfounded



This is the world we live in


//With the places we live
And these are the hands we're given


//And all the ways we can help
Use them and let's start trying


//We should all start helping
To make it a place worth living in
//to make the world better



Oh, superman, where are you now?


//Where is all the good people?
When everything's gone wrong somehow?


//How come nothing can be good?
The men of steel, these men of power


//The good people, and those in powerful positions
Are losing control by the hour
//Are losing time to help out



This is the time, this is the place


//Focus on what’s happening now
So we look for the future


//Prepare for the future
But there's not much love to go around


//but few people actually care
Tell me why this is a land of confusion


//Why are we all dumfounded

This is the world we live in


//With the places we live
And these are the hands we're given


//And all the ways we can help
Use them and let's start trying


//We should all start helping
To make it a place worth living in
//to make the world better




I remember long ago


//I recall back then
When the sun was shining


//Well everything went well
And all the stars were bright all through the night


//And everything continued to go well
In the wake of this madness, as I held you tight


//And when things got bad, we stuck through it
So long ago


//Back then

I won't be coming home tonight


//I don’t approve of what’s going on
My generation will put it right


//This generation will fix things
We're not just making promises


//We will actually fallow through


That we know we'll never keep
//with what we say we will do



There's too many men, too many people


//Because there is too much people
Making too many problems


//They are the reason for the conflict
And there's not much love to go around


//And few people actually care
Can't you see this is a land of confusion?
//We are all dumfounded



Now, this is the world we live in


//With the places we live
And these are the hands we're given


//And all the ways we can help
Use them and let's start trying


//We should all start helping
To make it a place worth fighting for


//To make this a place worth the fighting

This is the world we live in


//With the places we live
And these are the names we're given


//And the reputations we have
Stand up and let's start showing


//Support what’s right
Just where our lives are going to


//To where we are headed
