We Are a Superpower
How many innocent people must suffer and be killed;
How many lost and wasted lives?
How many wars, how much blood must still be spilled,
Before we wake up and open our eyes?
How much of this planet must be ravaged and destroyed,
How many different species sacrificed?
How many left sick, hungry, homeless and unemployed,
Before we take up the battle cry?
[Chorus] Well February fifteenth showed us the way;
The sleeping giant awoke.
Fifteen million stood together that day;
with one voice we spoke.
A sea of reason and sanity, a giant wave of humanity,
A force on a course to be reckoned by the powers that be
How many cities and towns must go down in bankruptcy;
How many trillions must we be in debt?
How many billions must be enslaved in poverty,
Till we’re more than just a little bit upset?
How much worse can we treat this mother earth,
How much of her worth will be used up?
How much shit will we take before we break
The silence and say ‘enough is enough?’
[Chorus] Well February fifteenth pointed the way;
A sleeping giant awoke.
Tens of millions stood together that day;
With one voice we spoke.
A raging sea of solidarity,
A tidal wave of humanity,
A force to be reckoned by the weapons of the powers that be – A SUPERPOWER!
