lyrics

Makes no difference who wins or loses, because they're all telling lies.
And there's very few among us who don't see the clouds in the sky.
We've got to open up our hearts and live free while we're alive.
To the people at "the top" -- we'll see you in another life.

Ordinary people -- living our lives
Ordinary people -- flying through the skies
Ordinary people -- living our lives
Ordinary people -- living in modern times

The world is divided by those who need and those who have.
There's power pushing down energies that might be bad.
To the people at "the top" who starve us while while they can.
Until we can break the bounds of what can be and what has been.

Ordinary people -- living our lives
Ordinary people -- flying through the skies
Ordinary people -- living our lives
Ordinary people -- living in modern times

We can occupy our streets. We can buy nothing for a week.
And we can eat locally grown food from our neighbor's heirloom seeds.
But can we wake up the dreamers from their prozac colored sleep?
And can we raise up children that the corporations can't defeat?

Ordinary people -- living our lives
Ordinary people -- flying through the skies
Ordinary people -- living our lives
Ordinary people -- living in modern times
