Curtis MayfieldNew World Order

Darkness no longer, a child is born Mother shed tears of joy as baby test his lungs My daddy's not there where he ought to be Somewhere in Georgia, skinning and shooting craps on his knees Another victim born out here in the hood And based on statistics it really ain't all good Welfare takes the tab and daddy can't sign And it can't be seen, the family becomes a crime The hunt is on and brother you're the prey Serving time in jail, it just ain't the way I'm living so hard, baby, that my hair is gray We got to make a change, it's a brand new day A new world order, a brand new day A change of mind for the human race A new world order, a brand new day A change of mind for the human race Operation influx and it's on the way We've just marched a million plus the other day Look we all witnessed the sweat rolling down Ms Liberty's head She knows the sleeping giant is no longer sleeping dead Oh, what a fulfillment of prophecy Let us teach the children freedom's never been free It's okay to cry, go ahead and cry 'Cause Jesus wept but hope and faith he kept It's a new day A new world order, a brand new day A change of mind for the human race A new world order, a brand new day A change of mind for the human race The die has been cast and there's no need to fear 'Cause people, the answer to your prayers are here Sister Mary don't you weep, tell Martha not to moan We need the love and daddy's coming home There's no need to worry, the times dictate a plan Mother Earth's given birth to a brand new man Sister I know you're misunderstood But hold on to your man 'cause the future looks good It's a new day A new world order, a brand new day A change of mind for the human race A new world order, a brand new day A change of mind for the human race Beware of the lies and false prophecies We are many with eyes but don't all really see You must be merciful my friend to obtain the same So if you break the chain don't pass the blame We should say unto all and I'll say it again It's not just to win, shake a hand, make a friend We who are pure at heart somehow might see There's still light in the world, come rejoice with me It's a new day A new world order, a brand new day A change of mind for the human race A new world order, a brand new day A change of mind for the human race It's a new day, it's a new day It's a new day, it's a new day It's a new day Yes, Lord, it's a brand new day
