John has a new way of looking at life

He’s tired of his job, his kids and his wife

He says the secret to his success

Was in leaving and finding himself

Now he’s someone to somebody else.

And you say we’ve risen to a new age of truth

You’re calling it a spiritual Godly pursuit

But I say, I say,

We’ve got a program for saving the earth

While unborn children are denied their right to birth

One baby’s blessed, another cursed

Have we made this world better or worse

Now that the life of a tree comes first

And you say we’ve risen to a new age of light

You’re telling me what used to be wrong is now right

But I say, I say,

(repeat chorus)


What if we’ve fallen to the bottom of a well

Thinking we’ve risen to the top of a mountain

What if we’re knocking at the gates of hell

Thinking we’re heaven bound

What if we spend our lives thinking of ourselves

When we should have been thinking of each other

What if we reach up and touch the ground

To find we’re living life upside down.
