Can you not see?

 Do you not see that there are changes ahead?

The smog is laden with dread  and the fish are all dead

 

Can you not feel that there is bad news to come?

There are kids on the run and the sound of a gun

 

Can you not sense that people don’t feel the same?

That it’s not just a shame where there’s no one to blame

 

Do you believe that you’ll be let off the hook?

There’s a child with a book, can you not read that look?

 

Do you not see that we must all raise our voice?

There is really no choice, got to challenge their noise

 

Can you not tell that it is time to speak out?

As the storm blows about, got to step out and shout

 

Can you not smell that there is filth in the air?

Big business won’t share, politicians don’t care

 

Do you not sense that it is time to think clear?

To consider what’s dear and to speak without fear

 

Do you believe that we make an impact?

If we all make a pact holding on to the facts

 

Will you be the change that you’re hoping to see?

just a drop in the sea is the start that we need
