Verse 2

Somewhere out there is a land that’s cool,

Where peace and balance are the rule,

Working for the future like some mystic jewel,

And they're waiting for a. and they're waiting for a, and they're waiting for a miracle.

Struggle for a nickel, struggle for a dime,

Forget about the past, leave your worries behind.

How come the future has to take such a long time.)
