The Winds of Change
The winds of change are blowing, blowing from the West.
Listen to the wind. Will you pass the test?
Will you float up higher, reaching for the light?
Or will you stay for one more day until we’re out of sight?
The winds of change are blowing, blowing strong and fast.
Will you choose to join us or cling on to the past?
Spread your wings and just let go of hate and greed and war.
Rise above the conflict and vow to war no more.
The winds of change are blowing. Will you come along?
Will you join your family? We are ten million strong.
