Burning to the ground

lyrics:

We were born to embrace, not accept it
We were given nothing more until we kept it
As the color of our boots keep fading
Live a life that we hate without saying

Who would listen to the cries of a poor man
Never done nothing
How can we be something?
Every heart has an hour of existence
Every breath brings a chance for redemption

If somehow we could Wake Up!

Let us love (like we were children)
Make us feel (like we’re still living)
In a world I know is burning to the ground
It is time (to beat the system)
Live this life (like we can’t miss it)
In a world I know is burning to the ground

In the crowd of the dead and disappointed
We’re ashamed, given up on what we wanted
Take a chance on a long shot this time
Aren’t we all just at least worth another try

I’m a king in the land of abuses
Under my law the promise of excuses
Who’s to win if we know that it’s not fair?
Who would fight when it seems that no one cares

If somehow we could Wake Up!

Let us love (like we were children)
Make us feel (like we’re still living)
In a world I know is burning to the ground
It is time (to beat the system)
Live this life (like we can’t miss it)
In a world I know is burning to the ground

It’s hard to stay here but where do we go?
I know I can’t feel it anymore
It’s true, time is wearing us down
Before mother and brother will wait
Waiting for our ways to change

Let us love (like we were children)
Make us feel (like we’re still living)
In a world I know is burning to the ground

We are hurtin’ on the road behind you
Let the wind go with you till the morning come

Yeah your sorrow, no it can’t save you
It won’t answer for what you’ve done

Need to Breathe — From the album “The Outsiders”

No comments today. Just mulling this over. After taking a break, I’m going to be resuming soon though.
