Lyrics

another day
another beat down and enslaved
ain't it a shame
you say you're never gonna change
don't turn the light on
don't care to see what you're doing
ya stand against those bloody hands
unless those hands they are your own
so whatcha driving
and who or what is driving you
to call for freedom for us all
except for those you wanna use?

you speak of virtue
well honey, that's alright with me
you speak of virtue
well honey, that's alright with me
you got your head in that sand
that really where you wanna be?

I say you're reachin
you'll cling to anything you find
you say I'm somethin
yeah, what the hell gives me the right
to tell ya somethin
say you've known it all along
but when this world's so filled with suffering
causing more just can't be wrong
you say you like it
ain't nothin here for you to do
say you'll resist the status quo
but keep on funding that abuse

you speak of freedom
then tell me why you holding chains?
you speak of freedom
then tell me why you holding chains?
you got destruction to lose
they got their very lives to gain

you speak of justice
then tell me why you doin 'em wrong?
you say you love them
then tell me why you doin 'em wrong?
and how can your personal choice
cause others so much bloody harm?

what about me?
you're askin through your grittin teeth
no purity ain't what we're looking for ya see
those things that matter
yer livin free from needless harm
ain't nothin that you're gonna find
among them bodies being farmed
I wanna hear ya
I wanna see ya in the streets
I wanna meet you in the place
where you can look them in the face

you speak of virtue
well honey, that's alright with me
you speak of virtue
well honey, that's alright with me
you got your head in that sand
that really where you wanna be?

you speak of freedom,
then tell me why're you holding chains?
you speak of freedom,
then tell me why're you holding chains?
you got destruction to lose,
they got their very lives to gain
you got your head in that sand,
that really where you wanna be?
and how can your personal choice
cause others so much bloody harm?
