The power to change the world

In the eyes of every boy or girl

You could be a god, king

Or a queen

These words we write

Be them wrong or right

Our power, our vigor

These words are our liquor

Our ideas are drugs

Marijuana for the lugs

It’s heroine for Edward now

The opium for Chairman Mao

We drop bombs, speaking grenades

We are the Renegades

The rebels

And our words dig like shovels

Into the hearts and minds

From the past and for future times

We are the change the world needs

You, him, her, me

Every soul has a purpose

Our reason on this earth is

To inspire with truth

This hazardous youth

To save without fame

This world we must tame

With our power at last shared

Our strength… becomes theirs…
