1. When the revolution comes, ain’t gonna need no bombs or guns Just people speaking truth across the land When the revolution comes, ain’t gonna cry, ain’t gonna run Just get out in the streets and join the band, join the band 2. When the revolution’s here, ain’t gonna play the game of fear We’ll shout down little creatures preaching hate When the revolution’s here, gonna sing it loud and clear We’ll all join hands and open up the gates CHORUS: Pitchu li sha’arei tzedek / avo vam odeh Yah Pitchu li sha’arei tzedek / avo vam odeh Yah

1. Gotta open up your eyes / take a look around Ain’t no surprise / that the rules are breaking down Love and compassion are in short supply The milk of human kindness is about to run dry 2. It’s hard to know / just where to begin With tempers getting short / and patience wearing thin It’s easy to complain, we’ve all done our share But we’ve done as much complaining as the market will bear CHORUS: Pick a card, any card, nothing up my sleeve Everyone’s a winner if you only believe Circle left, circle right, reach for the sky The dance ain’t over till the music dies 3. I’m not gettin' any younger / not feeling very brisk I’d like to fix the world but I’m averse to risk I’ll reach out to you / if you reach out to me But if I go first, will there be a guarantee Open up your eyes / take a look around Ain’t no surprise / that the rules are breaking down Love and compassion are in short supply The milk of human kindness is about to run dry Pick a card, any card, nothing up my sleeve Everyone’s a winner if you only believe Circle left, circle right, reach for the sky The dance ain’t over till the music dies

1. There's anger on the rise / mud is gettin deep Can’t seem to close my eyes / I'm not gettin any sleep Shouting in the streets / shooting in the schools They’re turnin up the heat / breakin all the rules Seems like only yesterday we could keep our fears at bay forever Seems like only yesterday we could dance the night away forever 2. Greed is in the air / poison in the ground Don’t seem very fair / but the hammer’s comin down There’s people preachin hate / people putting up walls The wolves are at the gate / they’re waiting for the fall Seems like only yesterday I could wipe your tears away forever Seems like only yesterday we could dance the night away forever

Fin papir, vel’n mir, boyen boyen, oy, a brik Katsh’n zikh, katsh’n zich, in indzer land tsurik (2x) Vus vet zayn, vus vet zayn, az mashiakh vet kimen tsi geyn Yie bye bye bye, yie bye bye bye, yie bye bye ba bye From paper, from paper, we will, we will build a bridge And we’ll roll, and we’ll roll along back to the land. This is a time of trials and tribulation the yetzer hara, the evil inclination, taking root in our hearts, tearing apart the fabric of our lives History repeats itself through the generations Over and over in so many iterations We think we’re changing but we’re sliding into tribalism Condoning violence and slipping into nihilism “The arc of history bends toward justice” I wanna believe it but you gotta have trust in your fellow human being, that’s not what I’m seeing I see a shadow creeping across the land A shadow spreading like a stubborn infection Bringing us all to this intersection of darkness and light, of fight or flight, of what’s wrong and what’s right
