  • Lyrics: I took a walk across the island I met a man and he was smilin’ I told him it just wasn’t right When people were caught in a fight He opened his eyes, turned his head He looked at me close and he said Give praise on high For everyday we’re livin’ And be thankful for Everything we’re given I said he didn’t understand me With people struggling just to be free There’s war and there’s violence around Distrust and hatred abound Our brothers and sisters in chains The world is just going insane – he said Give praise on high For everyday we’re livin’ And be thankful for Everything we’re given Give praise on high For everyday we’re livin’ And be thankful for Everything we’re given What is the answer – what is the question Why is suspicion running high? Liberation – what is the source Confusion – charting the course Of the road to the dream of tomorrow Where will this lead? I felt my words were forsaken Their meaning clearly mistaken I got up and shuffled away Preparing to meet a new day But echoing around in my head Were only the words that he said Give praise on high For everyday we’re livin’ And be thankful for Everything we’re given Give praise on high For everyday we’re livin’ And be thankful for Everything we’re given For the earth and the sun and the sea And the stars and the food That we eat every day For the people we love and the Herb that we smoke The things that we do every way Give praise on high Give praise on high Give praise on high For everyday we’re livin’ And be thankful for Everything we’re given
