  • Open your eyes and see
    The world I couldn't change for you
    Reach out your hand and take
    The world that will belong to you

    We were on our way to a better day
    And the spirit was in us all
    But as time went by we fell by the wayside
    Maybe you'll be the last to fall

    You are the only ones
    There is nobody left but you
    You are the chosen ones
    There is nobody else to choose

    Back when I was young, my hope was strong
    But the time blew it all to hell
    If I thought I knew what was good for you
    I would have gone and done it for myself

    Worlds of tomorrow
    Life without sorrow
    Take it because it's yours
    Sons of 1984

    I can still see the great panorama of hate
    Being cleansed by our loving hands
    But the brothers broke stride, the sisters cried
    Now you have to start all over again Writer/s: TODD RUNDGREN
