The Leader Who Stands Before Us
Background to this song
I was driven to write this song when I looked at Leaders of nations around the globe and see what a poor example so many are to their citizens.
There seem to be so few who inspire and provide any sort of moral example for the way forward for the human race.
Hopefully this might change in the not too distant future.
You are the leader of today
But do you know, how to behave?
Are you there for the greater good?
Or just to be some greater god?
Yes, you are, the King of Kings
Playing the Lord, of the Rings
We don’t want a Drama Queen
Twistin’, turnin making scenes
You’re not the one to take gentle steps
We’re so scared of what’s coming next
Go go go, big Leader
Let it all gush out
Don’t you love to scream and shout
Hey, hey, hey, big Leader
You leave me without doubt
Time to move you, right on out
We hate the poison that you speak
Please tell us why, you feel the need?
To drown us in, your twisted tweets
And feed us with, your bitter sweets
There you are, on your throne
Turning our dreams, in to stone
Yer, last night I had a dream,
We had a new leader.
Someone we can believe in
with an honest face and caring smile
I had a dream, I want to believe in
I had a dream, I had a dream
I have a dream, I have a dream
