We Can Make It Right
As I watch and listen to the television
I see our own government full of corruption
They keep on telling us that it is for the best
Though they use our money for their own interest
It’s so hard to understand the world around me
We know what’s right and yet we find it hard to see
We let our superiors treat us as their own pawns
That’s why they think that we are something they can own
What has happened to the Philippines the world knew?
What has happened to those whose hearts so pure and true?
What has happened to the virtues like honesty,
What happened to the president we believed in?
Bad things became worse, and the rich became richer
What will happen to those who live a life lower?
What will happen to us who live a simple life?
Why can’t we benefit from the money we’ve strived?
I wonder what will happen in the near future
Will there be someone, a leader that would nurture?
If I will have a child, will he have a good home?
In this unfair world where many feel so alone
Choose the lesser evil, that’s what they always say
But is choosing the lesser evil the right way?
If there is still something you could choose that is good
And that would benefit the whole neighborhood
Once again, let us stand for what we know is right
We should not fear because God is on our side
Let us not make the same mistake we made before
We learned from it and now we’ll open the right door
Together we’ll support the right man, Among Ed
He is a servant of God, the man God has sent
Last time, the good people were the ones left behind
Now we have the will and power to make it right
