Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

It's time to tell the King
His crown is just a hat
His throne is just a chair
And nothing more than that

It's time to tell the President
The power that he wields
Is only by consent
Of the workers in the fields

And it's time to tell the people
That they're made of sterner stuff
It's time for us to make a stand
It's time to say "Enough!"


It's time to turn the TV off
And rub your weary eyes
And peer beyond the veils
Of the illusions and the lies

It's time to tell the ones
That we employ to run the show
That their little Game is up
It's time that everybody knows

It's time to tell the children
That their games have got too rough
It's time to take the toys away
It's time to say "Enough!"


Oh yes, it's time now that the Earth is bleeding
Why not now? Why do we have to wait?
Why not now while the forests are receding?
Why not now when tomorrow
Might just be too fucking late?


It's time to tell the congressman
The boom-time days are done
It's time to put his pen to work
For the good of everyone

It's time to tell the County Sheriffs
The Police Chiefs and the Mayors
That the mutual back-scratching now
Won't get them anywhere

It's time to lay it on the line
It's time to call their bluff
It's time for us to make a stand
It's time to say "Enough!"


Oh yes, it's time now that the Earth is crying
Why not now? We don't have the time to wait!
Why not now while the seas are slowly dying?
Why not now when tomorrow
Might just be too fucking late?

It's time to lay it on the line
It's time to call their bluff
It's time for us to make a stand
It's time to say "Enough!"
