"Show Me a Leader" lyrics

Well they're selling another messiah here tonight
But we're all way too numb and divided to buy it
Sing it

No, no, no
We are all too divided this time
No, no, no

Show me a leader that won't compromise
Show me a leader so hope never dies
We need a hero this time

Disillusioned and tired of waiting for the one
Whose intentions are pure, unpersuaded, we can trust
Sing it

No, no, no
'Cause a promise is never enough
No, no, no

Show me a leader that won't compromise
Show me a leader so hope never dies
We need a hero this time

I know if we're to survive
We need to know this is not the end
How will we ever get by?
It's getting harder to fight out here on our own

Show me a leader that won't compromise
Show me a leader so hope never dies
Show me a leader that knows what is right
Show me a leader so hope can survive
We need a hero this time
Or we will never survive
