Lyrics: 

What Are We Waiting For

V1
hope is not
a strategy
action is
needed

dreams are not
reality
plans must be
seeded

hope is not
a strategy
dreams are not
reality

C
we must act
we must do
we must not wait
anymore

we must act
we must do
we must make change
before...
before it’s too late

we must act now
we must do more
what are we waiting for?

V2
want is not
insanity
action is
needed

need is not
a fantasy
plans must be
seeded

want is not
insanity
need is not
a fantasy

C
we must act
we must do
we must not wait
anymore

we must act
we must do
we must make change
before...
before it’s too late

we must act now
we must do more
what are we waiting for?

B
time is of the essence
love is at the core
change is what we make it
we can do more...

C
we must act
we must do
we must not wait
anymore

we must act
we must do
we must make change
before...
before it’s too late

we must act now
we must do more
what are we waiting for?

OUTRO (Fade out)
we must act now
we must do more
what are we waiting for?

we must act now
we must do more
what are we waiting for?

Good message! There's just so much that needs to be worked on but it hits at multiple things in my mind.

Wow, really like these lyrics. I’d like to add some music if that’s ok with you, and you don’t mind if it takes me till the weekend?

here here that could be very anthemic. Jasons guitar will sound good on that! i have one similar in the bag just needs some touches

I like the repetition on the verses. It gives the song a bit of a Pete Seeger vibe to it. A good protest song should have repetition so that people can learn and sing along as you go. Nice job!
