Stand


Lyrics & Info

Performances (63)

Walk in a corner shop 
See a shoplifting cop 
See the old lady with a gun 
See the hero try to run 
Nothing's what it seems, I mean 
It's not all dirty but it's not all clean 
There's children paying bills 
There's monks buying thrills 
There pride for sale in magazines 
There pills for rent to make you clean 
Marvin Gaye, there's no brother, brother 
Woody Guthrie's land, can't feed mother

Mothers weep, children sleep 
So much violence ends in silence 
It's a shame there's no one to blame 
For all the pain that life brings 
If you will just take me 
It might just complete me 
And together we can make a stand

A waitress brings me lunch 
We meet but do not touch 
On TV D.C. selling lies 
While in the corner King's dream dies 
Go to the counter, pay for me and my friend 
A homeless man pulls out a roll, says it's on him 
The mayor has no cash 
He said he spent it on hookers and hash

Mothers weep, children sleep 
So much violence ends in silence 
It's a shame there's no one to blame 
For all the pain that life brings 
If you will just take me 
It might just complete me 
And together we can make a stand

You will love me, I will love you

Mothers weep, children sleep 
So much violence ends in silence 
It's a shame there's no one to blame 
For all the pain that life brings 
If you will just take me 
It might just complete me
