Lyrics
Hey, I'm not kidding, it's Election Day
See with 20/20 what comes our way
Votes show us, how we feel and need
No matter how right we perceive wrong, indeed
We hope, for tomorrow

As time moves on beyond old and new
Beyond the here and now and me and you
Maybe reality will be sweet and clear
Without an inferno of anger, hate and fear
We hope, for tomorrow

In this world that's loved but hard to see
How to know where we belong
In this sad, desperate, and painful song
About lack of trust and why we must
Who are we?

Way deep down inside
On that hard and bumpy ride
Through darkness and despair
Alone with truth with ourselves to share
We ask, who are we?

In this world that's loved but hard to see
How to know where we belong
In this sad, desperate, and painful song
About lack of trust and why we must
Who are we?

Who are we?
Among each other as a sea of stars that shine!
Who are we?
To each other, all is yours and all is mine!

Who are we?
