A Day On The Green by Consolidated

[Audience member]
"Why do you feel that - you don't portray your message in a more positive way? I understand that, by looking around, that you may not be preaching to the already-converted and all, but it just seems like so much of your messages are told from the negative side. I was just wondering why don't you point out the more positive, uh, not aspects, but options?"

People pass each other on the streets everyday
You can see suspicion in their eyes
They go reaching out, but then their heads will turn away
People on the phone, why even try?

Think of younger children and how well they communicate
Children only act out of love because they haven't learned to hate, hate, yeah
This is how they try to make us enemies
But love proves that I can be your friend
Instead of feeling anger, when we meet hostility
We've got to try to understand

Until there is justice for all
There's no equality
And for any rights we have
We also have responsibility
Yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
We've got to
Love and let live
Learn to forgive
I'm reaching out to you
Trying to get along
It might be all that we can do
People fight each other on the streets everyday
That's because the system keeps you down
We need a love revolution
With not retribution
Stop thinking, "Us versus them"

The death penalty has never brought justice for anyone
We've got to live with the spirit of love
And stand .... by the gun, gun, yeah

[Chorus]
We've got to
Love and let live
Learn to forgive
I'm reaching out to you
Trying to get along
It might be all that we can do

[Guitar solo]

[Chorus]
We've got to
Love and let live
We've got to
Learn to forgive
We've got to love
I'm reaching out to you
Got to ...love..., yeah yeah yeah
Can't we try to get along?
Can't we try to get along?
Can't we try to get along?
Can't we try to get along?
