Reaching

Turn on the tv 
Watch the news 
Seems like things never change 
History repeats and weak always lose 
Nothing changes but the clothing 
Pillbox hats to hip hugger jeans 
Still brothers killing brothers 
We make love to the war machine

But don't lie 
Don't say you want peace 
Just go ahead and go to sleep 
Before the rest of us 
Who have never died 
And always try from Lenon to Dr. King 
We will always and forever be reaching

I've walked down every street 
Of every place I've been 
You know that everybody is hooking 
For some kind of pimp 
You can't trust the power 
'Cause power has no heart 
And greed is a bitter stone 
In a poor man's mouth

So don't lie 
Don't say you want peace 
Just go ahead and go to sleep 
Before the rest of us 
Who have never died 
And always try oh.. from Malcom to Guthrie 
We will always and forever be reaching

Blessed is she who finds her voice 
Blessed is he who says he has a choice 
Blessed are we who wake up to gleam 
Oooo... life is but a dream

So go ahead and oh say you want peace 
Just go ahead and just go to sleep 
Before the rest of us who have never died 
And always try from Tiananmen Square to Beijing 
Know that we will always 
Oh and forever be reaching

We will always 
Oh, you know we will always be reaching

Reaching
