LYRICS
Whenever I think of the state of the world these days
I have to hold my head in shame
‘Cause we can’t keep passing the blame
We all have to take our share
Of the responsibility
It’s not just them, it’s not just you and me
It’s everybody
The whole of humanity
We’ve all gotta take a step back
Just take a look at what we’ve created
Take a second to think about what you could do
To make things better
Just one little gesture
One selfless act is all it would take
And if we all play our part
It’ll snowball into a massive change
And that snowball will grow into an avalanche
The people won’t be able to escape
They’ll fail to outrun the need to do good
And that need will become a craze
And we’ll be forced to change our ways
‘Cause you all know we can’t resist the need
To follow the latest fashion

The world is a pretty place if we let it be
The pretty place it was meant to be
A pretty place for you and me
The world is a pretty place if we let it be
The pretty place it was meant to be
A pretty place for you and me

But it’s looking pretty ugly right now
Everybody just out for themselves
But the need to be driven by greed was started
Way back in history
The desire to have more and more is what became the snowball
Which soon became an avalanche
Unescapable, do you see my point
It’s monkey see, monkey do so let’s do some good
Make a change
Rearrange your way of thinking
I see what you’re thinking
“Does this mean I’ve gotta give up all of my money and my toys?”
Not at all, just make a little noise
For all the future little girls and boys
Now let’s get this snowball rolling, one good deed a day
Is all it’ll take
Just imagine if everybody in the whole of the world
Caught on to this craze
Wouldn’t that be great?
Wouldn’t that be great?

The world is a pretty place if we let it be
The pretty place it was meant to be
A pretty place for you and me
The world is a pretty place if we

More about The Turtle Project:

The Turtle Project started out as exactly that, a project, a songwriting project that was born from years of being a musician in many bands, doing countless gigs, naturally gathering experience and inspiration until, one day, I stumbled upon the fact that I could actually put those experiences and many others into words. The composing aspect grew from that into what it is today ...

My way of life .
