“Time to be the change and tomorrow we’re thriving!”

==Lyrics==
Yo! Here we go once again I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again
Open up my mouth and the words come spilling’ out
No need to shout, gonna tell you what I’m all about
See, I’m the man with the master plan
Spreadin’ my message all across the land
Time to wake-up, all the crimes we been living’ with
Rise together and Change the System
So we’re rising’, through the heavens we’re flying’
No surprisin’ altogether we’re thriving’
