(M. Gray, N. MacDonald, B. Held)
Calling all the nations, we got to come together, yeah
Children of the future, build a new tomorrow, ooh
You can't tell me what to say or do, like a puppet on a string
I won't show you no prejudice of the colour of your skin
This ain't love, this is war, tell me what we're fighting for
Welcome to the revolution
Do we laugh, do we cry, mama watch your baby die
Welcome to the revolution, yeah, welcome to the revolution
Ruthless politicians, blinding us with their lies
Countdown to destruction, right in front of your eyes
I believe we're running out of time, we gotta make a stand
Only we can turn the world around, the power's in our hands
Welcome to your future, baby, ow!
Oho, gonna fight no more, gonna fight no more, gonna fight no more, oho
Gonna fight no, we'll fight no more, no more - yeah!
They say the world's come tumbling down
The cities burn as we fall to the ground
You wake up screaming in the night
Ghosts to the left and ghosts to the right
The rivers run dry, the sky turns red
Say your prayers ''cause tomorrow we'll be dead
And tell me, God, are we all too late
To save the world from its [dancing] fate
We better listen (repeats out)
