better way lyrics – ataris

i want change to happen!
i want social justice!
i want service! programs!
no don’t drink that wine.

so many huge decisions
are made in corporate board rooms
what about the streets of our city?

will we drink that wine? will we trust those who know
will we venture out in faith, confess what we don’t know
in a perfect world things are rarely what they seem
reality could be a dream

who will we listen to and who will we trust
will we trickle down or will we trickle up
who will decide what the answers will be
what do we want? rabbi we want to see

my mustard seed will grow
it’s growing into a mountain mover
my crippled leg is showing
but i’m going to the head of the table
my worst his best, most honored guest
the seed is growing stronger
throw the mountains into the sea
move the mountains inside of me

the mustard seed against the world
perfect world imperfect world

i want “bottom up” justice
at the bottom of justice
surely the wineskin of justice
surely the cup of mercy
will overflow into the streets of the world

soon will come the time
to drink of his new wine
