All at once the world is bowing to the fire
Because Truth has been avoided like the plague
And who beloves to stand and wait before the pyre?
And will all the lights be off in L.A.?
Turn ‘em on just as fast as you can
Turn on the lights in L.A.
Make it strong, go on, give ‘em a hand
And we may see the day
When it’s gonna get better

In a world of trouble there is something glowing
In the eyes of those who choose to see and hear
And those of you who are among the knowing
Should never hide what is near
Turn it on, get it bright as you can
Turn on the lights in L.A.
Make it strong, go on, give ‘em a hand
And we may see the day
When it’s gonna get better

Someday it’s gonna be a place where everyone can laugh and sing
And politics don’t mean a thing
The fears are all forgotten
Someday the world will lift its face and see the sun
And see within we needn’t be just what we’ve been
Your neighbor ain’t so rotten
Someday we’ll learn to love

It just takes a match to start a little fire
It’s not as bright as the light of the mind
If everyone could recognize their own desires
It might start movin’ up the spine
Turn it on, get it bright as you can
Turn on the lights in L.A.
Make it strong, go on, give ‘em a hand
And we may see the day
When it’s gonna get better
