This is what I'm talking about Always kicking and shoving and pushing down Spinning concealing hiding the truth Don't know why anybody listens to you I can't hear a word that you say Get off your knees wash the blood from your teeth Today is as good as any day To wash, wash yourself clean And I don't know how many times I have to say How many times do I have to say defend the oppressed Plead the case of the fatherless Plead the case of the wido Otherwise we might see Otherwise we might hear Otherwise we might understand And we might turn and be healed Until the cities lie in ruin Until all of the fields are destroyed Until everyone is sent far away And all that remain are laid to waste

I saw a boy standing, standing in his driveway Standing, standing with his baseball glove Another glove was sitting, sitting on the ground Empty, waiting for his Dad to come home But he’s working lte Cause he’s selling his life by the hour Putting food on the table And fancy cars in the garage He’s putting clothes on their backs With a colorful noose Hanging around his neck I saw a man sitting, sitting in his office Wondering wondering how he got there He used to be a young boy sitting and waiting Waiting, waiting for his Dad to come home Now pictures of his family are hanging on the walls The gray gray walls of his cubicle The hours really drag but the years fly by And every day he wonders if they Jumped off the train Could they survive the fall If they tucked and rolled just right They could get up and walk away somewhere new An alarm clock goes off And he wakes up Time to do it all again

There’s some things you ought to know The sky is up, the ground’s below but you can’t fly, and I won’t help you Under Understand I’d like to learn A little more but I’m not sure Just who to ask when no one has the Answer We made you in the dark But one day you won’t trust in us anymore When everything we told you seems a lie It’s true If peace is bad, then war is good Some die too young, there’re some that should It makes no sense, but no one said it had To There’s just one thing that’s sure We are the cause, we have the cure But who’s to say if this will make it Better? You came out from the dark Now you can not believe in us anymore Why would we bring you into such a life For you Can you be everything I wanted to be Can you be everything that I couldn’t be Can you see everything I wanted to see Can you be everything that I couldn’t be

We are running around we are running around What we are building up will be torn down One informs the other then the other then they pass it around Don’t think build it up then it gets torn down This all seems ordinary We sleep confident in our security Justify defend as we cover our eyes To all the killing and the pain we’re desensitized Leaders of the world stay the course and we believe the lies March and march and keep good time watching our brothers die And on and on it goes like this If you want to fast forward to the end I’m going to write a letter To my sons and daughters tell them You You don’t have to march To their rhythm you can march out of time Just listen to the love and peace in your heart
