Grey in grey they rush along,
Hopeless, lifeless, old and worn.
And cowering in the corners sit
The poorest of the poorest.
They had no light, no hope, no future,
When suddenly out of the shadows
A lonely voice, soft but stubborn
Begins and new, inspiring song:
Colour fades and flowers die,
They won't re-bloom much as you try.
Forget the old, embrace the new,
And join me in my cheerful tune!
Ignored, unheard the song begins,
But confident it stays,
Singing softly, singing on,
Until another voice joins in.
See the light I will create,
A world of laughter, free of hate!
Join my song and share my desire,
Spread this song as fast as fire!
The movement spreads, the voices grow,
And soon in every shadow dark
The tune is sung and kept alive
And still more voices join the choir.
Old is old and soon forgotten,
This system to the core is rotten!
We want change and want it fast,
Come join us, or this pain will last!
And finally the change begins,
The fire spreads, brings light and warmth,
As poor grows rich, dark gets light,
And desperation turns to confidence.
Follow me and hear my command,
For I will take over this land!
I promise I'll be good and fair,
Everyone will get their share!
The rhythm quickens, faster, stronger,
Soon in every street it screams,
Words of laughter long forgotten,
Hatred rules in every corner.
And in midst this chaos is born
A new voice, a new tune, a new hope,
Soft and quiet, yet to be heard,
But confident and full of passion.
Look what happened, see the despair
that anger brought with hateful glare.
Learn from the past, reach for tomorrow!
Follow me to a world without sorrow…
