It'll Be The Time

by Coley Couture
When TNT only gives a little blast,
And racism is a thing of the past,
And happiness is not measured in success
Then it'll be the time.
When the great big world knows no boundary,
And the biggest power is the one to be free,
And minorities can be at ease
Then it'll be the time.

It's the time to be free
For all society
It's the time to live life
To the fullest of degrees
It's the time to have fun
Out playing in the sun
And once the war is won
It'll be the time.

When the life is worth living,
And receiving's less than giving,
And the human race has found their place in outer space,
Then it'll be the time.

When the goose is already cooked,
And the fat is just plain overlooked,
And to abide means just to take it right in stride
Then it'll be the time.

It's the time to be free
For you and them and us and me
It's the time to live in a way
That invites humankind to stay
It's the time to beat the clock
And have the river move the rock
And for once we just don't mock
It'll be the time.

When bargains will come free,
And all of us make a perfect three,
And a slip doesn't mean we have to trip
Then it'll be the time.

When the sun shines every day,
And we face each one with a smile and say,
"And nothing's overlooked 'till we get you hooked"
Then it'll be the time.

When the hook is not on drugs
And it's on playing like the bugs,
And time doesn't have any rhyme,
Then it'll be the time.

It's the time to be free
For everyone we can see
It's the time to have this dance
Instead of walking around in a trance.
It's the time to live life
Instead of worrying about your wife
And when no one has a knife
It'll be the time!

The time is right now
Oh yes it is and how!
The time for humankind to be free!
So if you know the way,
There is no brighter day
Because it'll be the time
For all of us to be free!
So instead of having fears
About millions of those yesteryears,
Look ahead to the future with me!
You'll be surprised at what you'll see!
If you just open up
And once it's time
You'll be happy being free.
Trust me, you'll be happy being free.
