Lyrics

1. Pressure’s high on every side,
pushin’ us to compromise.
It’s hard to find the truth
within a complicated world of lies.
Routin’ two-way traffic
on a one-way street.
Promising fulfillment
when the end is incomplete.
Chalk it up to greed,
calling selfishness a need.
It’s difficult to call a bluff
when life is relativity,
And round, and round,
and round, and round the world goes,
We’re still lookin’ for our yellow brick road.

Dear Dorothy, I gotta tell ya,
we’re not in Kansas anymore.
Clickin’ your heels won’t fix the deal,
Get with the Word of Life!
Dear Dorothy, I gotta tell ya,
we’re in a time like none before.
“Do what ya feel,” won’t make it real.
Get with the Word of Life,
And it’ll lead you home,
it’ll lead you home, Dear Dorothy

2. The world is chic but underneath
are grinding bones and gnashing teeth.
So surprised at our demise,
sin slips in with a slick disguise.
Stickin’ on our minds
from the T.V. screen,
Undermine our morals
through a fashion magazine.
Yeah, we gotta be quick,
the Devil’s pretty slick.
He paints a pretty picture
in the world, it’s a dirty trick,
And round, and round,
and round, and round the world goes,
We’re still lookin’ for our yellow brick road.

Bridge
Well we can’t count on what we got,
And we look for what we’re not.
What we really want is more than what we are.
I know a Greater Love, and he isn’t very far.

Verse 3
Got some wisdom I can lend,
don’t need to call a psychic friend.
Listen to my words
and you will never see a bitter end.
Don’t buy the propaganda
that God is obsolete.
Faith is the one thing that
can make a life complete.
We’re gonna have to be tough,
the road’s a little rough,
But God has got a road map,
if we read it it’ll be enough,
And round, and round,
and round, and round the world will go,
But we’ll have Jesus as our yellow brick road now.
