DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE
STEPHEN DUNNE
IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE,
IT’S TIME FOR PEACE,
BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER,
IS THE FIRING GOING TO CEASE

I HEAR PEOPLE CRY,
A GREENPEACE SHOUT,
POLITICIANS WHO WON’T ANSWER,
THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT IT ‘S ABOUT

WE’RE ALL RUNNING WILD
OUR EYES FULL OF HATE
WE NEVER BLAME OURSELEVES
JUST BLAME IT ON OUR FAITH

WE ALL MAKE CHOICES
TO CHOOSE THE WAY WE LIVE
BUT WHEN WE ARE WRONG
ONLY GOD WILL FORGIVE

LISTEN TO MY WORDS
MY LANGUAGE AIN’T SO STRANGE
YOU CAN CALL ME CRAZY
BUT IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE

SO DONT FILL MY HEAD
WITH YOUR FOOLISH LIES
IT’S MONEY IN YOUR POCKET
WHILE ANOTHER MAN DIES

WHY START A REVOLUTION
WHEN THERE’S NO REAL CAUSE
THE DICTATORS ANSWER
WITH A ONE WORD “BECAUSE”

SOME OVER RATED LEADER
STARTS A BLOODY WAR
IF YOU’RE NOT FIGHTING FOR YOUR COUNTRY SON
WHAT ARE YOU FIGHTING FOR

WELL YOU CAN KEEP YOUR DEMOCRACY
AND YOU’RE REPULICIAN STATE
I’M A MAN WHO BELIVES IN GOD ABOVE
ALL YOU NEED IS A LITTLE FAITH
SO DON’T WASTE YOUR DIME
ON THIS EMPTY TRAIN
IT’S GOT NO VOICE
AND CANT’T HEAR WHAT YOU’RE SAYING

QUESTIONS WITHOUT ANSWERS
LIKE DOLLARS WITHOUT CENTS
WHEN IT’S ALL OVER
DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE
