lyrics

How do you drag humankind, kicking and screaming out of its past?
How do you spark its enlightenment? How do you make sure the glimmer lasts?
There's nothing to dread, in setting the world…

…Ahead, the old mindsets arise, like primitive walls that keep us in place,
How do we scale them or knock them down? One more break for the human race?
There's nothing to dread, in setting the world ahead

Setting the world ahead 'cause it's time,
Set it ahead, because it's behind
Setting the world ahead

How do you open their eyes, replace the old myths with visible facts?
How do you spotlight the obvious? Re-direct them on how to act?
There's nothing to dread, in setting the world ahead

Setting the world ahead 'cause it's time,
Set it ahead, it's fallen behind
Setting the world ahead,

Now we may be down to the wire, we've
Dug ourselves so deep in this pyre, we
Better come up, with some solutions, kick off revolution and save what is left.

How do you sound the alarm, and make sure the snooze button's not tapped?
How will we make it from here to there? Will we collapse or will we adapt?
There's nothing to dread, in setting the world ahead

Setting the world ahead 'cause it's time,
Set it ahead, it's too far behind
Setting the world ahead to awake
Set it ahead, whatever it takes

Setting the world ahead
Setting the world ahead
Setting the world ahead
Please set the world ahead
