If Tomorrow Is Gone

Performed by The Buds

We the people lived through years of frustration,
been all shook up, been torn down,
taste of success might ease the situation
lift us up to a higher ground,

but the pathway's narrow and the shadows are steep,
can't see near a destination,
but a destination ain't what we really need
to lift ourselves back up to a higher ground,

Chorus:
High time for revolution
gonna take back our home,
Revolution won't wait til tomorrow
if tomorrow is gone

Instrumental verse, repeat chorus

Just imagine what Mr. Jefferson might say,
can't you hear General Washington crow,
"we ain't waitin' for some kinda saint
to dig us out of this hole,"

but the water's rising and we're in it deep
there ain't no rescue coming this far down
gotta pick each other up with our own hands & feet,
lift ourselves back up to a higher ground

High time for revolution
gonna occupy our home,
Revolution won't wait til tomorrow
if tomorrow is gone

repeat chorus to coda:
if tomorrow is gone
if tomorrow is gone
tomorrow's gone
