lyrics

Why do we live in a world where people are forced to sleep on the streets?
why do we live in a world where people are forced to hurt other people
to meet their own needs?

I don't know, but I feel overloaded
And I want to escape
but how I can I think of music at a time like this?

I believe that there has got to be
Some kind of explanation
or at least a reason to believe that there is
something better than this

I'm not the world's best songwriter, I'm just one who hasn't been shot yet
Not much of a lover or a fighter, I'm just trying to work with what I've got
Oh god!

I've forgotten what I have taken for granted
And I have been so loved...
But if that bums you out, then I'll keep it to myself

I wanna sing, i wanna start a family
but I don't have a gun
So I guess the best that i can do is run
and enjoy my moment in the sun

I'm sorry I didn't go to the protest I went shopping instead
I don't know what it's like to be victimized, so I went to dinner with my girlfriend

And we felt bad so we had a conversation
All about our privileges
and how we're frustrated cuz we don't know what to do

We wanna help, but it's so complicated
and we feel overwhelmed
when our actions and inactions mean something
but what does all of this mean??

I don't know but I feel overloaded
I can't take much more of this
In another world I know there must exist
something better than this
