Do we like it as it is?
Injustice having the upper hand
Benefiting those organised
In terms of state and market
How long should we wait
Suffering from these injustices
Taking everything as it is
In the world where we live
Crying on a daily basis
Leaving everything to fate
Background and culture
Or should we get organised and
Have our power at our hands
Stand up to these mighty bodies
The answer is one and same
Get organised and challenge
The state and the market
Bring justice to this world
Make it a place worth living
With lots of smile and love
Happiness and justice
And take the world to its place
A place of love instead of hate
A place of justice in stead of injustice
The kingdom of heaven brought down to earth
That is what we want to see
The world as it should be.
THE WORLD AS IT SHOULD BE!
