Lyrics:

We see it all around us
We feel it in our skin
Mothers, Fathers, Sons and Daughters
Wearing ourselves thin
Preachers preach a line or two
Of how we live in sin
They sell it on the evening news
And we keep on giving in

We don't care whose side you're on
What you think is right or wrong
We can all have freedom
If we can get along

We can hear the song, but no one's singing
We'd break the glass, but there ain't no ceiling
We climb the mountain of no tomorrow
But they keep on peddling grief and sorrow
It's time now
Things have got to change

Maybe it's our generation
Maybe it's the times
But we can no longer take what's kept us all in line
We ate our bread and watched the the circus
As it passed us by
But now it's time to reason
Now let's speak our minds

We don't care whose side you're on
What you think is right or wrong
We can all have freedom
Let's do what must be done

We can hear the song, but no one's singing
We'd break the glass, but there ain't no ceiling
We climb the mountain of no tomorrow
But they keep on peddling grief and sorrow
It's time now
Things have got to change

So Friends, Romans, Countrymen
Lend me all your ears
We come to bury all the wrong
And inter it with our fears
Let's learn the lessons of our past
Speak loud and strong, it's fine
We're sick and tired of being sick and tired
We are The 99

We can hear the song, but no one's singing
We'd break the glass, but there ain't no ceiling
We climb the mountain of no tomorrow
But they keep on peddling grief and sorrow
It's time now
Things have got to change
They've got to change
