Circles

Circles

We’ve been dancing circles all night,
trying to forget about the news.

We’ve been standing up again,
singing against a world gone wrong.

The world’s so heavy these days.
Every heart’s just turning blue.

No time to rest—
time to shine your light.

You know that evil’s just bound to lose,
if goodness is the path you choose.

Ride the merry go round of history,
and find the way to peace and truth.
