Lyrics
Let faith be my shield, and let joy be my steed
'gainst the dragons of anger, the ogres of greed
and let me set free with the sword of my youth
from the castle of darkness, the power of the truth
I've struggled as a man to figure out this life
what I'm doing with the time that I've been given
I search to find the reasons for the wrong and for the right
and it's clear the status quo
is the first thing that must go

Gonna be some changes
gonna be some sorrows
we badly need them
to make it through tomorrow
Gonna be some changes
gonna be some sorrows
we badly need them
to make it through tomorrow

I struggled as a boy to work out wrong from right
feet of clay by day
man of steel by night
I wished for some great teacher that would guide me to the light
but tha voice inside me said
there's no quick and easy way

Gonna be some changes
gonna be some sorrows
we badly need them
to make it through tomorrow
Gonna be some changes
gonna be some sorrows
we badly need them
to make it through tomorrow
Leaders seeking power are spoiling for a fight
my learned friends are sure who should be chosen
each day the papers tell me who is wrong and who is right
but between the lines I find
no reason in the rhyme

Gonna be some changes
gonna be some sorrows
we badly need them
to make it through tomorrow
Gonna be some changes
gonna be some sorrows
we badly need them
to make it through tomorrow

There is nothing out of reach in this world
the story told for many years can no longer serve us well
there is nothing out of reach in this world
it's in our hands
in our hands
Far away the spirit guides me
speaks in tongues I understand
far away the spirit calls to me
a message for the common man

Gonna be some changes
gonna be some sorrows
we badly need them
to make it through tomorrow
Gonna be some changes
gonna be some sorrows
we badly need them
to make it through tomorrow
Gonna be some changes
gonna be some sorrows
we badly need them
to make it through tomorrow
Gonna be some changes
gonna be some sorrows
we badly need them
to make it through tomorrow

Let faith be my shield, and let joy be my steed
'gainst the dragons of anger, the ogres of greed
and let me set free with the sword of my youth
from the castle of darkness, the power of the truth
