Twenty-five years and my life  still
Trying to
  that great big hill of hope
For a destination
And I
  quickly when I knew I should
That the world
made up of this brotherhood of man
For whatever that

And so I  sometimes
When I'm
  in bed
Just to get it all out
What's in
  head
And I am
a little peculiar
And so I
 in the morning
And I
outside
And I
a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream at the top of my lungs
What's going on?

 B. Write the missing words.
And I
,  hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?
ooh, ooh ooh
and I try, oh my
 do I try
I try all the
 , in this institution
And I pray, oh my god do I pray
I pray every single

For a revolution
And so I
  sometimes
When I'm lying in

Just to get it all out
What's in my
 
And I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I
  in the morning
And I
outside
And I
a deep breath and I real high
And I scream at the top of my lungs
What's going on?
And I
 , hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what's going on?
Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
