If
If that's the way that it is (oooh)
If
If that's the way that it is

If we put our hearts together
And overcome our hesitation
We could join our love as one
And storm the gates of heaven

If the winds of change
Would blow in the favor of man
Resolve our situation
Undo the work of idle temptation

Oooh
The test of time
Oooh
Freedom will fly

If
If that's the way that it is
We gotta fight to live
If
If that's the way that it is
We gotta fight to live

If the tribes of Eden
Could find some common ground
We share in life and wisdom
And free our minds from prison

If there came a prophet
Could he lead us to the promised land
We gotta start talkin'
Gotta start talkin'
Yeah

Oooh
The test of time
Oooh
Freedom will fly

Runnin' out of time now
Come on like a holy war
Gotta fight to live
Struggle now
Fight to live
