Songs For Our Times #1

I have been meaning to do this for awhile, but too many irons in the fire and I can’t seem to keep up.

I believe music can inspire, give hope, make you cry, make you think, and a million other things. I want to start posting some music that I really think speak to the times we are in. As you know, I listen to everything so tune in every day, never know what you will get.

The first song is by one of my favorites, Michael Franti & Spearhead. It is called This World Is So F***** Up (But I Ain’t Never Giving Up On It). I picked this one because of the truth in it, this world is so messed up right now, but I believe there is hope in the future, and I am not going to give up on it.

Lyrics:

Let me tell you ’bout the situation goin’ on
Up inside my head today
My mind is runnin’ round in circles
Tryna make sense of the people
Who are runnin’ everything today

All these politicians tweetin’
Got their message on repeat and
Try dividin’ us with fear and the hate

Whey-ey-ey
I wish I could find a better way to say this

This world is so fucked up
But I ain’t never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ up on it
This world is so fucked up
But I ain’t never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ up

Whey-ey-ey
I wish I could find a better way to say this

We ain’t askin’ for money
We just wanna make change
We do it for all of the people who need it
‘Cause they got a voice and a name
I can’t believe how we livin’ today
I got this anger and sadness and pain
They can build walls but we can build bridges
And we can be part of the change

Whey-ey-ey
I wish I could find a better way to say this
Whey-ey-ey
I wish I could find a better way to say this

This world is so fucked up
But I ain’t never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ up on it
This world is so fucked up
But I ain’t never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ upLet me tell you ’bout the situation goin’ on
All around the world today
There’s a billion different people
Doin’ a billion different things
To make a billion places better today

And ey, ey-ey
I know that we can make a better day

This world is so fucked up
But I ain’t never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ up on it
This world is so fucked up
But I ain’t never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ up on it
Never givin’ upAnd ey, ey-ey
I know that we can make a better day
