There’s a change that is a coming,
It’s a slow but certain truth.
There’s an energy that’s flowing
And there’s standards taking root.
No more the Irish people
Will from government accept
The lies, the cheating, cronyism
From a system that’s inept.
We may not have all the answers,
But we surely have a plan.
They think that we can’t do it,
But we’ll show them that we can.
Although we’ve different backgrounds,
May not all the time agree,
The goals we have in common
Will unite us, wait and see!
The road is long with little time
But we need to put a stop,
And start to change the system,
From the bottom to the top.
I know it won’t be easy,
And our conscience might be torn,
But look out over Ireland and see,
A terrible beauty has been born!
