[Verse 1]
So caught up in our own day-to-day,
We see lives in need and look the other way.
I'm not a pessimist, but I think it's safe to say
This would be different if it was your family.
We can't fathom not having a place to rest our heads.
Can you imagine the pain of a newborn child that won't be fed?

[Pre-Chorus]
It's so easy getting comfortable,
We ignore the empty hands in need, thinking someone else will see them.

[Chorus]
Can you see the possibilities?
We have the ability to change the world!
If we want to see a change we have to be it,
Stand up and believe that the responsibility's ours!

[Verse 2]
Day after day they continue to die so we think our prayers go unheard,
But poverty ends where compassion begins,
We can no longer deny, it's up to us.
It's up to us!

We are the chosen ones,
Called to be bold!
There is no time to hesitate.
Today is the day we can break the mold!

[Chorus:]
Can you see the possibilities?
We have the ability (we are the chosen ones) to change the world!
If we want to see a change we have to be it (we have to..),
Stand up and believe that the responsibility's ours!

[Hook]
Their starving eyes cry out for anyone to listen,
Reaching out for anyone to care.
Would we ignore them now if they were our own children,
Or make a promise to always be there?

Remove the veil from your eyes!
We could move mountains if we only tried! (if we only tried)
Remove the veil from your eyes!
We hold the power in our hands to save their lives!

[Chorus]
Come on, can you see the possibilities?
We have the ability (we are the chosen ones) to change the world!
(The chosen ones!)
If we want to see a change we have to be it (we have to..),
Stand up and believe that the responsibility's ours!
