Never Stops


I'm alright, tell me you're alright

Almost here, barely here

I knew that this day would have to come

Wailing on the wall watching giants fall

I know there's a message to receive

Written in debris streaming out to sea

The loss of innocence means nothing in the new world

All our hands our red everyone is guilty now

I'm alright, tell me you're alright

Stuck my eyes, open wide

Another idiot glued to the box frozen to the screen

Scared to turn it off

Quiet shock gives way to righteousness

Rattle on the bars vengeance will be ours

Fanatics on their knees pray for a swift and just revenge

Become what they condemn

Mirror image man

Hands across America

Lets catch contact hysteria

July 4th for ever more

Colors of democracy

Fly from every SUV

The misspelled bumper stickers here

Where did all the honor students go

Numbers on the news

This time with familiar names

This time on familiar ground

This reality in your backyard

So the fences fall

Will you redefine them all

Will you just shelter your empathy

The world we share has come too close

With borders blown from glass

We collect stones and cast them

They say the party never stops

I know we can not get off

Another idiot comes on the box

Breathing privileged air

preaching to the fair

Rallying one muscle under god

Leaning on a chair

Leaning on our fears

The state of ignorance means nothing to the faithful

God is with us now

They disregard the world beyond the wall
