Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination

I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
For whatever that means

And so I cry sometimes
When I’m lying in bed just to get it all out
What’s in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar

And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
“What’s going on?”

And I say, “Hey-ey-ey-ey”
Hey-ey-ey
I said, “Hey, what’s going on?”

And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah
I said, “Hey, what’s going on?”

Oh, oh ooh, ooh, uh-huh
Oh, oh ooh, ooh, uh-huh

And I try, oh my God do I try
I try all the time, in this institution

And I pray, oh my God do I pray
I pray every single day
For a revolution

And so I cry sometimes
When I’m lying bed
Just to get it all out
What’s in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar

And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
“What’s going on?”

And I say, “Hey-ey-ey-ey”
Hey-ey-ey
I said, “Hey, what’s going on?”

And I say, “Hey-ey-ey-ey”
Hey-ey-ey
I said, “Hey, what’s going on?”

And I say, “Hey-ey-ey-ey”
Hey-ey-ey
I said, “Hey, what’s going on?”

And I say, “Hey-ey-ey-ey”
Hey-ey-yeah-yeah-yeah
I said, “Hey, what’s going on?”

Oh, oh ooh, ooh, uh-huh

Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
