Right now

I’ll just leave this here for y’all. It expresses more eloquently than I could the way I feel right now.

Right Now–Chris Gaines, “Greatest Hits”

 

Maybe it’s the movies, maybe it’s the books
Maybe it’s the government and all the other crooks
Maybe it’s the drugs, maybe it’s the parents
Maybe it’s the gangs or the colors that we’re wearing
Maybe it’s the high schools, maybe it’s the teachers
Tattoos, pipe bombs underneath the bleachers
Maybe it’s the music, maybe it’s the crack
Maybe it’s the bible or could it be the lack

Come on people, now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Right now

Okay, maybe it’s the papers, maybe it’s the family
Maybe it’s the Internet, radio, TV
Maybe it’s the president, maybe it’s the last one
Maybe it’s the one before that (what he’d done)
Maybe it’s the athletes, maybe it’s the ads
Maybe it’s the sports fans, agents, fads
Maybe it’s the homeless, aliens, immigrants
Maybe it’s life, don’t tell me that it’s imminent

Come on people, now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Come on people, now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

You gotta love one another

Maybe it’s the fallout, maybe it’s the ozone
Maybe it’s the chemicals, the radiation, cell phones
Maybe it’s the magazines, maybe it’s the next page
Lotteries, fast food, bad news, road rage
Maybe it the unions, big business
Maybe it’s the KKK and the skinheads
Maybe it’s the daughters, maybe it’s the sons
Maybe it’s the brothers or the mothers or the guns

Come on people, now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Come on people, now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

(You know, if we don’t talk about it, it ain’t gonna get better)

We gotta love one another

(Talk to me… so what do ya say… let’s talk)

Maybe it’s the art, maybe it’s the sex
Maybe it’s the talk shows, maybe it’s a reflex
Maybe it’s the taxes, maybe it’s the system
Judges, lawyers and prisons
Maybe it’s the Catholics, maybe it’s the Protestants
Maybe it’s the addicts and the hippies and the communists
Maybe it’s a fashion, maybe it’s a trend
Maybe it’s the future… maybe it’s the end
