IEJL It’s Time Song
If you need help with the lyrics, you can follow these sample lyrics in anyway you like
Decaying schools, crumbing bridges, failing health, hunger, and riots abound. A world in despair in corruption’s playground.
It’s time to rise, to break corruption’s chains,
Rise up utopia, with society’s ethics campaigns.
No more lives lost in crumbling decay,
No more dark shadows obscuring the way.
We’ll build a new foundation, strong and true,
With ethics as our compass, we’ll see it through.
It’s time to break away, from corruption’s chains.
It’s time to unite, for society’s gains.
It’s time to create a cultural shift, let the new generations guide the ship
With hearts united, we’ll strive for the change
A culture of ethics, a future rearranged.
It’s time to live, in utopia’s bliss. Gather together, so we will not miss.
