​Wisdom In Hindsight

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album The Sun Will Shine Again (1996) and on the album Songs From A Troubled World (2006).

There's a new order comin' there's an old order gone
There's a new order comin' to right all the wrongs
But you don't change the system, and you don't change the game
Just by changing the venue, just by changing the name
And there ain't nothing different, and there ain't nothing new
The use of the many for the good of the few

There's a new order comin' there's an old order gone
There's a new order comin' to right all the wrongs
But there never was a winner when the battle was won
Nor a peaceful solution at the point of a gun
And there ain't nothing different, and there ain't nothing new
The lives of the many in the hands of the few

We've got wisdom in hindsight, we've got things to be done
It's gonna be all right in the years to come
We've got wisdom in hindsight, we'll be making amends
Those things that happened before us, will never happen again

There's a new order comin' there's an old order gone
There's a new order comin' to right all the wrongs
But you don't change direction and you don't change your aims
Just by changing your drivers, just by changing your lanes
And there ain't nothing different, and there ain't nothing new
The voice of the many from the mouths of the few

We've got wisdom in hindsight, we've got things to be done
It's gonna be all right in the years to come
We've got wisdom in hindsight, we can really pretend
Those things that happened before us, will never happen again

We've got wisdom in hindsight, we've got things to be done
It's gonna be all right in the years to come
We've got wisdom in hindsight, we'll be making amends
Those things that happened before us, will never happen again

We've got wisdom in hindsight, we've got things to be done
It's gonna be all right in the years to come
We've got wisdom in hindsight, we can really pretend
Those things that happened before us, will never happen again
