Ten Years After

lyrics

So you want to change the world but you don't know what to do?
Tax the rich, feed the poor.
Ten years after there's no rich and no one to tax anymore.

Easy, easy to know what's wrong and start a fight.
Easy to know it's wrong
And so hard to make it right.

So you went off to school and you learned the world's not fair.
Racist, sexist, fascist, and your parents just don't care.
Tuned in, turned on, dropped out and nothing's changed
And no one even knew you were gone

Easy, easy to know what's wrong and start a fight.
Easy to know it's wrong
And so hard to make it right.

So you want to change the world? Here's something you could do.
It's tougher than a sit-in and it may not be for you:
Get off your ass, go to class
Learn to work to learn to be prepared to
Take the torch when it's passed.

Easy, easy to know what's wrong and start a fight.
Easy to know it's wrong
And so hard to make it right.
