Do you think we have time?
Do you think we have time?

 These are the days of the open hand
They will not be the last
Look around now
 These are the days of the beggars and the choosers 

This is the year of the hungry man
 Whose place is in the past
Hand in hand with ignorance 
And legitimate excuses

The rich declare themselves poor
And most of us are not sure
If we have too much
But we'll taking our chance to say
I sang twenty years and a day
But nothing changed
The human race found some other guy
And walked into the flame 

And it's hard to love, there's so much to hate
 Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
Well maybe we should all be praying for time

Doo oh oh
Do you think we have time?
Do you
Do you think we have time?

 These are the days of the empty hand
Oh, you hold on to what you can
And charity, charity is a coat you wear twice a year

This is the year of the guilty man
Your television takes a stand 
And you find that what was over there is over here

So you scream from behind your door
Say what's mine is mine and not yours 
I may have too much but I'll take my chances 
I sang twenty years and a day
'Cause nothing changed
The human race found some other guy
And walked into the flames 

It's hard to love, Jesus, there's so much to hate
 Hanging on to hope, there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
Then maybe we should all be praying for time

Doo doo doo
Do you think we have time?
Do you
Do you think we have time?
Lord, give us time
