My face reflected in this empty plate
Or if it's just something I ate
He's patiently waiting at my gate
"Hey won't you come on out and play with me"
And everyday when I get up
For all the paper of plastic lives
And pride like a vestige of lives lost
Now with the news I heard today

And I'm awake, no I cannot sleep
I ain't standing up for nothing
I've never seen my congressman
'Cause I've seen his legislation pass
Same I can't deny this fallen world
How can I preserve and light the way

But these crows can't be made to stop
I ain't standing up for nothing
Lack of interest leads to
Lack of perspective leads to
Lack of understanding leads to
This complacency denotes
The truth
But I can't stop staring at myself
And I know that it's the devil
So you lead, I'll be close behind
You gotta lift me from this hardened tree
