Song lyrics:

[** feat. CL Smooth:]
[John Legend:]
Hope of the world is in our generation (lets straighten it out)*
Its all left up to us, to change this present situation (lets straighten it out)
Take caution from our elders, dont make the same mistake (lets straighten it out)
Lets fill the world with love, and get rid of all the hate
Our elders taught us one thing but, practice another
Just look what happened to the Indian and the brother
(Straighten it out!) {3x}
Hope of the world is in our generation (lets straighten it out)
Its all left up to us, to change this present situation (lets straighten it out)
Our leaders make us fight, and we dont know what for (lets straighten it out)
If they want people k**ed, let them fight the war!
Its gotta end somewhere, this k**ings got to cease
If no one were to fight, wed all live in peace
Our generation (lets straighten it out)
Its all left up to us (lets straighten it out)
Our generation (lets straighten it out)
Lets do just what we must
And straighten it out! (Straighten it out)
Gotta straighten it out! (Straighten it out)
Straighten it out! (Straighten it out)
Yeahhh we gon straighten it out, yeahh!
[CL Smooth]
As long as theres a you, theres a better me
Its why were together and stronger than they ever thought it could be
A world motherless - can health care cover this?
A love for all people no matter what the culture is


Our generation, is makin huge strides
A self-empowering movement thats on the rise
The more the door is open, the more the youth can see
A fair chance means a greater opportunity
To have a brighter future, deeper insight
Work hard to be anything you want in life
Its what its all about, the longevity
Educated enough to know whats ahead of me
Need to straighten it out, seek and youll find
They can cage your body, but not your mind
We lay it all on the line in the struggle
We grew, but together heres what we gotta do
[John Legend]
Our generation (lets straighten it out)
Its all left up to us (lets straighten it out)
Our generation (lets straighten it out)
Lets do just what we must, and straighten it out!
[JL with background singers]
Our generation - straighten it out!
Lets straighten it out - and straighten it out!
Heyyyyyyyyy we can straighten it out, YEAHHH!
Cmon yeah! Our generation - lets straighten it out
Hey hey, well straighten it out
Well straighten it out - straighten it out
New York City, better straighten it out
Atlanta, better straighten it out
In Los Angeles, you better straighten it out
We can straighten it out, we can straighten it out
[fades out]
