I thought the winter might never end
 The weather sent me around the bend
 Prayed to my invisible friend 
For my broken heart to mend You can’t wait for a man above
 The Second Summer of Love
 Free your mind of the trivial stuff The Second Summer of Love Looking back a half century
 Thinking about how it used to be 
Love was there to celebrate
 Living free from fear and hate Do your best for those in need
 Live the life you want to lead
 Free to break those dumb taboos
 Free to love anyone you choose Don't wait for a man above
 The Second Summer of Love Don’t ever stop ‘til you get enough
 The Second Summer of Love Let your heart float high above The Second Summer of Love
 Don’t ever stop ‘til you get enough
 The Second Summer of Love Love... love... love... love... love...

They cannot wait They mean no harm No need to fear or hate No reason for alarm They have no choice They have no home They hear the angry voice And still they have to roam They seek the promised land The human caravan To love your fellow man, Embrace the caravan A caravan of human souls United with a simple goal: Survive... Just stay alive... They are the poor In search of more Greet them with open arms Instead of open war This isn't new For me and you We are all immigrants Our parents came here too There is no evil plan The human caravan The family of man Embrace the caravan A caravan of human souls United with a simple goal: Survive... Just stay alive...

When the days are gray And the nights drag on When you have to stay Though you’d rather be gone Peace is worth fighting for is worth striving for is worth crying for Drag yourself along With a broken heart Dreaming of the end When it’s only the start Peace is worth dealing for is worth kneeling for is worth stealing for Peace is worth fighting for is worth striving for is worth dying for Let peace breathe in Your heart again There is no war Worth dying for Peace is worth fighting for is worth striving for is worth crying for Peace is worth fighting for is worth striving for is worth DYING for Peace blossoms in your sun Share peace with everyone

He can fan the flames He can boil the pot All the racist bigotry is All that we are not He said he'd make America great As if it wasn't great enough He gave the right a license to hate But we don't need a license to love

Oh lucky day God bless the USA It's AOK No facts get in the way Ignorance is bliss Who knew it would come to this Things are made to fall apart STUPID IS THE NEW SMART Just look around You'll see them dumb it down It's Crazy Town Run by an orange clown Open up your eyes See through his cheap disguise No brain no soul no heart STUPID IS THE NEW SMART Share yourself on Instagram Navel-gazing selfie land Wanna be a YouTube star Losing touch with who you are Check in with your Facebook friends Watching those Kardashians Catch up with your Twitter feed Real news takes too long to read Smart phones keep us mighty dumb Kill our equilibrium "Stay connected" so they say Real connections slip away Will we ever realize Smart phones have us hypnotized Keep on staring at the screen Life is just a stupid dream (wake up)

Once again they seem to care Sending out their Thoughts and Prayers Those are easy words to say In the pocket of the NRA Another day, another tragedy Is this the price we pay for being free? Is it worth the right to buy more guns? To make a killer out of anyone? Now they act as if they care Tweeting out those Thoughts and Prayers Those are easy words to say In the pocket of the NRA The politicians know their role: Never speak of gun control They read the same script every time "Shooters bad but guns are fine" They face the cameras and act bereaved Hoping we might be deceived Waiting for the next sad day They're dirty soldiers for the NRA Once again they seem to care Sending out their Thoughts and Prayers Those are easy words to say In the pocket of the NRA Now they act as if they care Tweeting out those Thoughts and Prayers Those are easy words to say In the pocket of the NRA If the shooter was a Muslim man, There would be another travel ban, If he's white it's just a goddamn shame Terrorism by another name Now the cowards claim to care Tweeting out those Thoughts and Prayers Saying “nothing can be done” “Blame the shooter, not the gun” If they want to show sympathy They should turn down blood money How many more must die this way? Say NO to the NRA! Thoughts and Prayers won't bring them back They won't stop the next attack How many more must die this way? Say NO to the NRA! It can happen anywhere Then we'll see more Thoughts and Prayers How many more must die this way? Say NO to the NRA!
