Isn't It Time

Isn't It Time (Robert Florczak/Terence P. Minogue)

Hey, isn't it time
That we open our eyes and believe.
Look, look at the world,
Can it really have been so deceived?
Wake up to the vanishing dream
Gone with no reason or rhyme.
Stand up to the madness we've seen.
Tell me, now isn't it time.

Hey, isn't it time
That we stop all the killing and greed.
Time is slipping away
And we'd better not lose what we need.
Wake up to the hunger and pain
There with no reason or rhyme.
Stand up and be brothers again.
Tell me, now isn't it time.

How long can people keep killing
As life disappears?
How long can dreamers keep singing
Songs no killer hears?

Hey, haven't we tried
To convince everyone not to hate.
Soon we may find
That the songs and the dreams are too late.
Wake up to the cry in the night
Filled with no reason or rhyme.
Stand up and we may win the fight.
Tell me, now isn't it time.
God, if this isn't the time.

(From the original soundtrack to the motion picture “Roar”)
