lyrics

Put The Old Ways on the Run (words & music by Jamie Fota)

There’s a kind of revolution reshaping thought today.
It’s a kind of evolution, bound to bring another way.
Yes, it’s time to find solutions, can’t make the same mistakes;
Obsolete institutions we cannot tolerate.

And we’ve only just begun to undo the damage that was done;
A new age philosophy, bringing hope for you and me;
Put the old ways on the run.

It’s time for new beginnings if we’re all to survive;
Let’s try and keep the earth clean and keep the waters alive.
The old order will be changing, bring in the new with pride,
A quiet rearranging, taking place from inside.

And we’ve only just begun to undo the damage that was done;
A new age philosophy, bringing hope for you and me;
Put the old ways on the run.

Time to get off the porch swing and make an active start.
If you’re not into the solving, then of the problem you’re a part.
If you try to keep from choosing, then you choose the other side;
To keep the world from losing, we can no longer hide.

And we’ve only just begun to undo the damage that was done;
A new age philosophy, bringing hope for you and me;
Put the old ways on the run.

And we’ve only just begun to undo the damage that was done;
A new age philosophy, bringing hope for you and me;
Put the old ways on the run.
Put the old ways on the run.
Put the old ways on the run.
