I must've dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
I can hear the marching feet
They're moving into the street.

Now did you read the news today 
They say the danger's gone away
But I can see the fire's still alight
 Burning into the night.

Too many men
Too many people  Making too many problems 
And not much love to go round 
Can't you see
This is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given 
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

 Superman where are you now
Everything's gone wrong somehow
The men of steel, men of power 
Are losing control by the hour.

This is the time
This is the place 
So we look for the future 
But there's not much love to go round 
Tell me why, this is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given 
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

I remember long ago 
When the sun was shining 
The stars were bright 
All through the night 
And the sound of your laughter 
As I held you tight 
So long ago 

I won't be coming home tonight 
My generation will put it right 
We're not just making promises
That we know, we'll never keep.

Too many men
Too many people  Making too many problems 
And not much love to go round 
Can't you see
This is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given 
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for.

This is the world we live in
And these are the names we're given  Stand up and let's start showing
Just where our lives are going to.
