Upside Down, Rightside Up - Lyric

 

Refrain

When the whole world seems upside down,

You gotta keep yourself rightside up.

Wake up…wake up…wake up…

 

Leaders using power for their own needs.

Mothers turning away from unborn cries.

Conmen cashing in on elderly seeds.

All trashing God, quoting Him in their lies.

 

Foul winds taking down ancient trees.

Dead fishes rising from the deep.

Poison filling up rivers and seas,

Spoils what we were trusted to keep.

 

Refrain

When the whole world seems upside down,

You gotta keep yourself rightside up.

Wake up…wake up…wake up…

 

Devouring everything we can find,

Bloated bodies, such a fright.

Looking past the warning signs.

Ignoring outcomes of our plight.

 

For creatures smartest in the land,

Extinction looms on our horizon.

Our own undoing we have planned,

Unless we change by our decidin’.

 

Refrain

When the whole world seems upside down,

You gotta keep yourself rightside up.

Wake up…wake up…wake up…

 

Get on the path to our correction

Before all our choices are gone.

Return again to our perfection,

Or else we won’t be here long.

 

Open our eyes, take a good look

At what we have become.

What will be written in the book

When our life is finally done?

 

Refrain

When the whole world seems upside down,

You gotta keep yourself rightside up.

Get up…get up…get up…
