Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination

I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
For whatever that means
And so I cry sometimes
When I'm lying in bed just to get it all out
What's in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar

And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What's going on?

And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah
I said hey, what's going on?
And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah
I said hey, what's going on?

Oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh
And I try, oh my god do I try
I try all the time, in this institution

And I pray, oh my god do I pray
I pray every single day
For a revolution
And so I cry sometimes
When I'm lying bed
Just to get it all out
What's in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What's going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?

And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?

And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?

And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?

Oh, oh oh oh

Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination

Traduzione:
Ho venticinque anni e sto ancora
cercando di arrivare in cima alla grande collina della speranza.
Per un destino

Mi sono reso conto,
quando ho dovuto farlo,
che il mondo è fatto di questa
"Fratellanza di uomini",
qualsiasi cosa significhi.
Allora qualche volta,quando sono a
letto,
piango per capire cosa mi gira per la testa
e allora mi sento un po' strano.
Mi sveglio la mattina ed esco di casa,
faccio un lungo respiro e mi sento al
massimo delle forze e allora urlo a
squarciagola: "Cosa succede?"
e dico: "Hey cosa succede"?
E ce la metto tutta, oh mio Dio,
ce la metto tutta, ce la metto tutta
per stare in questa istituzione.
E prego, o mio Dio, prego,
prego ogni giorno per la rivoluzione.
Allora....
Ho venticinque anni e sto ancora
cercando di arrivare in cima
alla grande collina
della speranza, per un destino.
