Heading for the classroom yesterday
The kids file through the metal machine
It finds what they may hide
No it just ain't right
A sign of the times

Another church is burning to the ground
Looking for the vandals and they're nowhere to be found
But the hate's alive
A sign of the times, Sign of the times
A sign of the times, Sign of the times

Would someone please let me know how we have spun out of control?
Has the captain let go of the wheel?
Or could we please try to find a way to be a bit more kind?
I see the road to tomorrow in the haze!

On the Senate floor they congregate
Many pockets lined with green,
From those behind the scenes, yeah they take the bribe (it's on the side)
A sign of the times, Sign of the times
A sign of the times, Sign of the times

    Lyric CorrectionI'm pretty sure the first stanza is sung as "You know it just ain't right", not "no, it just ain't right".

    Like psuedin, I believe this has a pretty straight-forward meaning.
    However, this song is NOT crap. I eapecially like the violin outro.
