what part do we play in this mess we find ourselves in...
You and me, we meld as one
We take a chance and leave the sun
The shade is cooler than I remembered
The honeybee is left for dead
Every city is painted red
With blood of those that never mattered
The who and where and how and why
In what has never crossed our mind
The time is lost and soon forgotten
And while we hope for sanity
I fear that it will never be
Entangled by this web that we're caught in
It's not you, it's not me, it must be someone else...
It's not you, it sure ain’t me, it must be someone else...
Fox is at their beck and call
Pay the bill to watch the fall
And feel the rush with bitter fingers
But no one cares if we share the blame
Reactions without feeling shame
The memory goes, the fallout lingers
Drop a dime, leave for the sky
Turn around to watch ‘em fry
Lead and flame in running water
On the brink and in a fog
Interact like cat and dog
It’s not our fault, no it couldn’t be?
Not too far from here the people came
With silly thoughts to entertain
And tell the children what they lost
Not far from here they take a vow of silence
And live inside the violence
That brought us here and now I hope
It's not you, it's not me, it must be someone else
If it’s not you and if it’s not me, it’s gotta be
Someone else that looks like us….
