I punched the clock in at thirty-five
I thank the Lord that I'm still alive
Sometimes I find it hard to believe
That my hearts still beating
And I'm still on my feet

I'm gonna give you
Give you a mission statement
I'm gonna give you
Give you a mission statement

I've been in a downward spiral
For a very long, long time
I've been stepping over dollars
Just to pick up a shiny dime
The way I see it, it ain't gonna work
I'm kissing my past goodbye

I'm gonna give you
Give you a mission statement

I got no more patience
I got no more time
I'm tired of following orders
Sticking to the company line

I wanna change the world
And I'm starting with myself
A private revelation
Concerning everybody else

We're all just lonely people
We're all looking for some help
Too busy crunching numbers
And fighting for ourselves

And all it takes is kindness
And a little love and care
And this planet that we live on
Can be a heaven we can share

A mission statement, oh yes
Now listen

The tears of hungry children
Well, they're falling in the dust
The scraps of a rich man's table
Well, they can fill their starving mouths

While some they thirst for water
Others get drunk on wine
To some their lives a prison
And they're out there doing time

I'm gonna give you
Give you a mission statement
I'm gonna give you
Give you a mission statement

I got no more patience
I got no more time
I'm tired of following orders
Sticking to the company line

I wanna change the world
And I'm starting with myself
A private revelation
Concerning everybody else

We're all just lonely people
We're all looking for some help
Too busy crunching numbers
And fighting for ourselves

And all it takes is kindness
And a little love and care
And this planet that we live on
Can be a heaven we can share

A mission statement
This is mission statement

Alright, alright
Listen, why don't you listen
To my mission statement

Have you ever felt the rain before it falls?
Have you ever sense the storm before it arrives on the horizon?
I don't think so
