Next to me I don't think I wanna' see a man
working so hard for a few dollars less.
Next to me I don't think I wanna' see a man
holding onto what he thinks he respects.
I can't concede
I should see so believe
and I can't believe
I should see and concede
Next to me I don't think I wanna' see a man
cringing from fear of a death far too late.

Next to me I can't see a world chasing harmony
Next to me I can see horrible fates.
Here in the middle, well I'm still a part of it
But I'll keep trying to the end of my days.
To take a good look at the habits that make it
A crime to the planet we're taking and taking from.
These are the days and the times we are living in,
these are the days of neglect and debate.
This is the planet we are here to be guardian to
would I leave a sick child bearing this weight?
Holding the match to the embers left laying,
could never ignite a fire near to its pending
doom.


Next to me I don't think I wanna' see a girl
holding her breath with her hands to her face.
Next to me I don't think I wanna' see a girl
waiting in vain for a little respect.
I won't believe
I can't beat this disease
I can make every day free and at peace with it.
All I will wander along through a stunning world,
picking me posies and laughing out loud.
Riding my bicycle, questioning the world I see,
lazing around with my dogs and my cats.
I'll never concede what another concieves
to be all that's perfect and proper and neat, and
Next to me I don't think I wanna' see a world
working so hard at a future for who?
