    Do Something

    I woke up this morning
    Saw a world full of trouble now
    Thought, how'd we ever get so far down
    How's it ever gonna turn around
    So I turned my eyes to Heaven
    I thought, “God, why don't You do something?”
    Well, I just couldn't bear the thought of
    People living in poverty
    Children sold into slavery
    The thought disgusted me
    So, I shook my fist at Heaven
    Said, “God, why don't You do something?”
    He said, “I did, I created you”
    If not us, then who
    If not me and you
    Right now, it's time for us to do something
    If not now, then when
    Will we see an end
    To all this pain
    It's not enough to do nothing
    It's time for us to do something
    I'm so tired of talking
    About how we are God's hands and feet
    But it's easier to say than to be
    Live like angels of apathy who tell ourselves
    It's alright, “somebody else will do something”
    Well, I don't know about you
    But I'm sick and tired of life with no desire
    I don't want a flame, I want a fire
    I wanna be the one who stands up and says,
    I'm gonna do something”
    We are the salt of the earth
    We are a city on a hill
    But we're never gonna change the world
    By standing still
    No we won't stand still
    No we won't stand still
    No we won't stand still
