We The People

With eyes wide shut, we point the blame
We hide our love, we share our hate
We feel your pain; we’ll write a song
But never will we sing alone

And what’s the point? You’re not like me
You’ve never seen the things I’ve seen
If you were me, you’d understand
You’d never plant a giving tree

And like a tree, we’re standing tall
Our roots are deep, we’ll never fall
We’ll never fall, but if we do
We might just fall on top of you

We the people, here and now
We slap the hand that reaches out
Complacency is blissful clouds
That shroud our minds and close our mouths
